About Axiom Law

Axiom is an 800-person firm, serving nearly half the Fortune 100 through 11 offices and 4 delivery centers globally. Axiom's attorneys and business leaders help General Counsel solve business problems through three forms of engagements: 1) Insourcing of secondees. Axiom Secondments enable General Counsel to make smart resourcing decisions that reduce fixed investment or an over-reliance on more expensive law firms. These secondments range from part to full time, remote to onsite. 2) Outsourcing of managed functions. When Axiom's clients need efficiencies across bigger pieces of work, Axiom teams provide end-to-end management and delivery of complex legal processes like commercial contracts, derivatives agreements, and compliance activities. 3) Projects. Axiom Managed Projects uses a process-led, professionally project managed approach to tackle discovery for litigation (from early case assessment through first and second level review) and complex contracts projects (from contract collection through assessment, reassignment, and renegotiation).

Axiom is venture-backed by Benchmark Capital and Greenhill Capital Partners. Bob Kagle serves on the Board of Directors. For further information, please see
