Julie Saltman, Partner
I began my career as a lawyer over a decade ago, as a civil litigator in the U.S. Department of Justice, where I worked on some of the most complex, high profile cases in the Obama administration. One of my most rewarding experiences at the DOJ was to co-found the first Department-wide gender equity affinity group in the history of the DOJ, in order to advocate for inclusive and safe workplaces and opportunities for development and advancement for all employees.
I left the DOJ to serve as an Assistant General Counsel at the U.S. Copyright Office, where I developed my management and leadership skills as well as my interest in intellectual property law. I left my career as a government lawyer to found a company that was a consumer facing alternative legal service provider in the hope that we could create a lower cost legal solution for small businesses in highly regulated industries.
In addition to practicing law, I am the CEO and co-founder of Clause Logic, a saas, legal tech company that is building tools to automate the frustrating and costly parts of document drafting for lawyers -- and to reimagine the way lawyers write documents without forcing them to change the way they work now. My journey to becoming a technical founder was neither linear nor traditional. Clause Logic is my second company, founded as part of my second career, and I do not have a technical background. But my experience as an entrepreneur frequently confirms that varied, seemingly unrelated life and work experience not only informs but improves your approach to entrepreneurship.
I attended Yale University and received my law degree from the University of Michigan.
