For Summer 2023, Brummell listed Charles Brecque on the Ones to Watch in 2023 listing of young professionals in the City. Legislate, a legal tech startup based in London, is built on patented knowledge graph technology which makes contract data usable and searchable.
Charles Brecque commented on the recognition:
“Having moved to London only quite recently it’s a great achievement to already be recognised by a leading magazine like Brummell. It’s an honour to be featured amongst so many talented leaders.”
For Brummell’s Ones to Watch 2023, the expert judges nominated individuals based on their “drive, energy and entrepreneurial spirit” as well as celebrating achievements both in and outside of work. The judges included: Abisola Barber, Margarita Skarkou and Tahir Zafar.
Some of Legislate’s most recent achievements include attending a Lawtech mission in Australia and adding over £3 million in a recent funding round.
In May 2023, Legislate attended the Legal Innovation & Tech Fest in Sydney after being selected by the Department for Business and Trade.
Amber Akhtar, the Chief Operating Officer at Legislate reflected on their recent mission:
“Legislate is just at the tip of the iceberg, there is so much more to uncover on how to utilise data in contracts.”
In March 2023, Legislate announced it recently achieved £3.6 million in their latest funding round led by Parkwalk Advisors, Oxford Capital and several high-profile angel investors to build on UK sales and prepare for international expansion.
Charles Brecque mentioned:
"We are delighted to have secured additional funding capable of helping us continue to drive innovation in this sector.”
