Posted by Lily Bruns on Jun 2, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Allegory founder and CEO, Alma Asay, was invited to share her technology insights on a podcast with litigation support guru, Amy Bowser-Rollins.

The tools that have revolutionized the daily practice of litigation might not seem as exciting as the latest legal-chatbot or AI, but to Amy, software that addresses the pain points of day-to-day practice is her bread and butter. We were thrilled when Amy invited us to take a deep-dive into our software as part of her new Legal Tech Mastery series.

Alma Asay Featured in Huffington Post Interview

Posted by Lily Bruns on Apr 20, 2017 2:03:03 PM

Allegory Founder and CEO, Alma Asay, shares her story and insights with Laura Emily Dunn in an interview for Huffington Post.

Running a startup in the competitive worlds of legal and tech has taught Asay resilience. Her advice to other founders?

"Expect the unexpected. Sometimes, it’s good, like the out-of-the-blue e-mail from someone you met two years before who absolutely must have Allegory by tomorrow. Sometimes, it’s bad, like the developer who gives notice without warning, just when everything seemed to be taking off. There is no such thing as predictable when building a business, so the best attitude is to expect the unexpected and realize that no one thing is going to make or break your success."
