Following a stint at a law firm, Alex de Miranda came to the realisation that working for a traditional legal practice was not for him, and he started looking for alternatives. It was at that point that he found Axiom. De Miranda, who has now been with Axiom for close to 10 years, describes the moment he decided to join the NewLaw firm as “a happy accident.” “I was lucky that I came into Axiom right when they were starting in London, and I’ve been with them ever since,” he says.
The CEO of a company that calls itself 'the future of law' says she still can't escape sexism at work — but she's on a mission to prove mentorship can break the glass ceiling. Along with calling out sexism when she sees it, Donio tells women not to say "yes" to everything and to take time away from work if they want to spend it with their families.
Axiom, an alternative legal services provider that calls itself the "future of law" for its innovative approach, is headquartered in New York City, where sharks hang from ceilings and meetings are held on repurposed bleachers.
