What’s Coming Next for the Ironclad Community

At Ironclad, our community is our motivation and our inspiration. You are why we work every day. That’s why we’re so excited to invite you to Apex, our inaugural conference for legal leaders and their teams, taking place in San Francisco next March. Climber and renowned risk-taker Alex Honnold—the only person to ever free solo Yosemite’s El Capitan and the subject of the Academy Award-winning documentary Free Solo—will be speaking, along with brilliant GCs and legal operations leaders. You won’t want to miss it. Apply to attend here.

We’re also proud to announce our Series C investment, which will allow Ironclad to expand our community efforts and our mission to power the world’s contracts—most notably through new solutions like our Workflow Designer, the first tool that lets legal teams build their own contracting workflows.
