Gary J Ross and Darby Wong

Jump to:

Host Gary J. Ross speaks with Darby Wong, Co-founder and CEO of Clerky, about legal document automation.  A computer science major who worked in Silicon Valley before becoming an associate in BigLaw, Darby co-founded Clerky in 2011. Darby talks about Clerky’s original premise of facilitating convertible note financings, and how Clerky has expanded through the years to also handle formation, compensation, NDA, and other documentation. Gary and Darby discuss the need for legal counsel even when legal documentation is automated, and the unauthorized practice of law issues raised by the actions of some of Clerky’s peers.
