Lawyers dealing with remote signing and witnessing of documents.
Gene founded co-founded LawHawk in 2016, after a 17-year career as a corporate and finance lawyer.
Before founding LawHawk, he was a corporate and finance partner at Buddle Findlay for six years. He has acted on many significant corporate and finance transactions, and been ranked by IFLR as a leading lawyer in both Corporate and Banking.
Gene has a long-standing interest in precedents and document automation, and first implemented document automation for Westpac in 2000, reducing preparation time for business banking and property finance loan documents from an hour to 3 minutes. Document automation has been a career-long goal.
By 2012 Gene realised that high-quality legal document automation could be done only by someone with legal and automation skills, and with specialist document automation software. So he learned HotDocs automation, and the idea for LawHawk came from there.
