"We are extremely excited to be recognized by LegalTech Breakthrough with this award,” commented Basha Rubin, CEO and Co-Founder of Priori Legal. "Scout is already providing tremendous value to its beta in-house legal teams and redefining how they make data-driven outside counsel hiring decisions. We are tremendously appreciative of all the positive recognition the Scout platform continues to receive.
