Chicago, IL - November 29, 2023

273 Ventures is delighted to announce the appointment of Rob Saccone to its strategic advisory board.

Rob brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise in the legal technology industry. In 2003, he founded XMLAW, a legal technology startup that quickly became an award-winning Inc. 5000 business. Under his leadership, XMLAW emerged as a leader in Microsoft SharePoint technology and expertise within the legal industry. His success continued when XMLAW was acquired by Thomson Reuters in 2009, where he held several senior positions, including general manager and vice president, serving mid-to-large law firms globally. Rob's expertise goes beyond technology and business, as he is a recognized expert in knowledge management and practice optimization within the legal industry. His most recent role as CEO at SeyfarthLean Consulting, a subsidiary of law firm Seyfarth Shaw, further underscores his ability to drive innovation and excellence.

Rob has a proven track record of consulting to firms and businesses, advising and investing in early-stage businesses, and occasionally holding board or executive-level positions to foster growth. “At 273 Ventures, we believe Rob's extensive experience as an entrepreneur, investor, and advisor in the legal community will be invaluable. We look forward to leveraging his insights as we continue to shape our company and its product offerings,” Michael Bommarito, CEO @ 273 Ventures.

Rob joins two other recently appointed advisory board members David Cambria and Jae Um. We are excited to have Rob on board and look forward to the strategic insights and direction he will bring to our team at 273 Ventures.

“I have followed the ground-breaking work that Mike, Dan, and team have done for some time. I’m confident that their combination of technical expertise, application in practice, and focus on market education sets them apart in the rapidly evolving AI space. I’m honored and excited to be part of 273’s journey,” Rob Saccone, Strategic Advisor to 273 Ventures.
