About Us

Why Clio?

We’re more than just a tech company. We’ve got goals, hopes, and dreams, just like you. We want to serve a better solution to a centuries old profession and do some good in the world while we’re at it—permanently.

We know our technology changes lives. If that’s something that speaks to you—you belong here, too.

    Our story

    Where did it all begin?

    Ten years ago, lifelong pals Jack Newton and Rian Gauvreau decided to start a company. Some say never mix business with friends, but we think things turned out well.

    What is Clio’s mission?

    Transform the practice of law, for good. There’s no guesswork when it comes to what we’re trying to achieve here.

    What’s it like working at Clio?

    It’s fun. It’s challenging. It’s rewarding. If you’re ready to do some of the best work of your career, Clio’s for you.

    What are we proud of?

    We’re innovative, but thoughtful about it. We update our product a lot, but it’s based on real research. We want to deliver a solution that actually helps our customers. Otherwise, what’s the point?
