Hyperdraft Welcomes Legal Industry Leader Erik Birkeneder To Its Advisory Board
Fremont, CA: HyperDraft, a leading provider of AI-powered document and diligence automation software for legal professionals, has added another legal industry leader, Erik Birkeneder, to its advisory board. Birkeneder is appointed to provide strategic support to HyperDraft as it expands its software platform as well as launches patent-pending products later this year. Over the last few months, various legal industry heavy weights have also joined HyperDraft, including former General Counsel of Stanford University Michael Roster as well as major Goodwin technology partner Sean Greaney.
"We are extremely excited that Erik is joining us for this next stage of accelerated growth," stated HyperDraft CEO Tony Thai. "I've consulted with Erik on our key intellectual property strategies, and having his deep expertise provides us with an even greater advantage as we position ourselves as the leading legal tech provider, especially as we are rapidly expanding and launching new product categories. "
Birkeneder is a seasoned intellectual property attorney with over 14 years of experience, and she is a leading expert on patenting AI-related technologies. Presently, he is the Head of Intellectual Property at Neumera, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering precision medicines for brain diseases. Prior to that position, he was a Partner at Nixon Peabody LLP.
"I am incredibly excited to work with the HyperDraft team," stated Birkeneder. "HyperDraft, led by their outstanding lawyer and software engineer CEO Tony Thai, has identified real problems that attorneys struggle with and continues to create AI/ML legal tech tools that uniquely solve these issues. Having seen firsthand what the HyperDraft team has built, I know that it will allow legal teams to easily leverage their skills, resources, and time at unprecedented levels."
The addition of a technology insider and leader like Birkeneder demonstrates HyperDraft's capability of expanding its software platform into new categories with previously unseen technology. Birkeneder will help the company navigate the expansion of its IP portfolio and maintain its position as an essential, comprehensive technology platform for legal professionals in his new role.
