Founder and CEO

"Innovation is a two-way street. Law firms must realize the importance of leadership in creativity. On the other hand, lawyers should dedicate the best of their expertise to contribute to the innovation strategy of their law firm and be able to see the bigger picture."

Embedding the Culture of Technology and Innovation in the Legal Industry

Abdul Hakim Manattil is the Founder and CEO of LegalTech ME, one of the first LegalTech companies in the UAE.

The thought of putting up LegalTech Middle East started way back when law firms were taking no interest in fully automating processes. Abdul Hakim worked with different developers to tailor fit the software and execute the project firmwide i.e. rolling out the installation of software in all computers even to mobile devices, training staff and configuring upgrades.

Abdul Hakim started Casengine a bilingual legal task automation system for law firms and in-house legal departments, it is a case management solution designed to ease legal departments burdens in managing daily work. This is being offered not just to legal departments but to Law Firms, In-House Legal Teams and Government. It was during the lockdown the legal practitioners realized their need for something like ‘Casengine’ having to work from home and no access to office technology, they struggled with their legal practice.

Our client’s best interest would always come first, and everything we do is guided by our values and professional ethics.

LegalTech ME will at all times demonstrate its commitment to sustainability, both individually and as a firm, by actively participating in our communities and integrating sustainable business practices wherever possible.

We will ensure that we hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards by meeting our client’s needs precisely and completely. We will cultivate a healthy working environment.

We envision LegalTech ME to be the leading brand in the Legal-tech space where it is offered. LegalTech ME will continually utilise innovative techniques and machine learning to improve its processes.
