Babylon is a digital health service provider that combines AI technology with the medical expertise of humans. Babylon delivers full access to healthcare, including personalised health assessments, treatment advice and face-to-face appointments with a doctor 24/7.
Babylon Health, one of the UK’s fastest growing tech companies 🚀 has been engaging Lexoo for a broad range of legal work on a regular basis since early 2018. The in-house team at Babylon, led by General Counsel Henry Bennett, uses Lexoo lawyers flexibly to help free up his team to focus on strategic priorities.
Babylon first used Lexoo to find a lawyer to update the company’s Terms and Conditions. After realising the quality and value of Lexoo’s lawyers, Henry and his team started using Lexoo for other legal work in quick succession, including employment, commercial property and commercial contract drafting and negotiations. In each case, Babylon was able to work with top-tier lawyers without the overheads of traditional law firms.
A few months later, Babylon came to Lexoo seeking an interim commercial lawyer to help to quickly scale up its legal team. The lawyer needed to provide part-time support for two months to help the team keep up with the company’s rapid growth.
How Lexoo helped
Within 24 hours of submitting its request, Babylon received detailed proposals from four top-tier commercial lawyers with an average of 10 years’ in-house experience at companies like Expedia, AOL, JPMorgan and Lloyds.
Babylon ultimately engaged an 8 PQE commercial lawyer on a flexible retainer basis. Her strong in-house experience from working at companies such as British American Tobacco, Disney and Airbus enabled her to hit the ground running immediately.
