SAN FRANCISCO - November 15, 2022 – Checkbox, the leading no-code service automation platform, today announced CEO Evan Wong has been selected as “LegalTech CEO of the Year” in the third annual LegalTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by LegalTech Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout legal technology companies, products and services around the globe.
Checkbox is a technology start-up company that was founded in 2016 to help organizations achieve rapid digital transformation. Using their no-code platform, legal professionals have built workflow and automation software in just a matter of weeks, using drag and drop.
Evan Wong, Co-Founder and CEO, has helped Checkbox bring this radically novel concept of digitally transforming manual work relating to legal and compliance processes and policies into intuitive software that anyone can use.
Wong has more than a decade of managing startups in different sectors and has won many entrepreneurship awards, including being listed as a Forbes 30 Under 30 recipient. Additionally, Wong is the founder of another company he started at just seventeen years old in the education sector. He has also held leadership positions in other ventures, founding a martial arts performance team as well as serving as a consultant for Social Impact Hub, and was recently awarded the Top Mentor and Highest Rated for the Founder’s Institute.
“It’s an extreme honor to receive this award from LegalTech Breakthrough. I share it with my entire dedicated team past and present. At Checkbox, we make digital transformation accessible for legal professionals, and our mission is to make this as easy as possible for everyone. We help leading law firms and in-house legal teams throughout the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific to generate huge cost savings, improve access to data, and most importantly, deliver more value to their clients by redefining the way they deliver services,” said Wong. “My passion for startups comes from a drive to solve the most challenging problems and to bring together a world-class team to do it. I am extremely grateful for our customers and our global team who believe in me and the Checkbox mission. They are the ones who I leap out of bed for every day and this award is a result of them.”
The mission of the annual LegalTech Breakthrough Awards program is to conduct the industry’s most comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the top technology companies, solutions and products in the legal technology industry today. This year’s program attracted more than 1,450 nominations from over 12 different countries throughout the world.
“We are currently in a time where digital transformation is front of mind for organizations across all industries globally. However, almost all lack the capability to undertake this journey successfully. This is because most of these companies are not traditionally software or IT companies. As a result, there is a huge backlog of projects for IT teams, many of which will never make it to the top of the priority list,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of LegalTech Breakthrough Awards. “Under Wong’s leadership, Checkbox empowers legal professionals to build, deploy and manage their own apps, building tools that automate manual work to boost efficiency and equip staff to solve problems and make decisions in a more streamlined, consistent and accurate way. Congratulations to Evan Wong on being our choice for ‘LegalTech CEO of the Year.’”
Backed by Sequoia, Checkbox’s customers reside in the United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, including companies such as Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, PwC, BMW, and Invisalign.
Checkbox is the leading no-code service automation platform that empowers legal teams to automate their tedious, manual processes and streamline their service delivery. Used by the likes of Allianz, Telstra, Woolworths, PwC and Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, Checkbox’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface requires no technical knowledge. As it is truly no-code, workflows can be built and maintained without relying on IT, consultants, or Checkbox as a vendor. For more information, visit www.checkbox.ai.
