For early stage companies looking to improve their products.

Access to users and customer feedback are essential for founders of growing businesses.
They are a key part of what has made MDR LAB so successful for the last three years.


Over the course of this 12 week programme you’ll get the opportunity to work within your target market, to pilot and improve products, to gain a better understanding of how legal services are provided, and to understand where lawyers – and their clients – would benefit from new technologies.

We’ll work with you to establish what you want to achieve in partnership with Mishcon de Reya. You’ll receive guidance from our legal and business experts and external mentors to help you meet these objectives.

We know that things are constantly changing, so half-way through the programme we review how things are going, to make sure you get the most of your time with us.

Applications for the Improve programme are now closed. Keep an eye out here for updates on when the next application window will open. If you have any questions, please email the team at

Our Alumni
Left Quote We received formal investment from Mishcon and then entered straight into a commercial relationship. There is something in the water here that breeds engagement and intellectual curiosity and a culture where everybody just wants to help. Every time we are here it feels like home. Ryan Alshak, Co-founder, Ping Right Quote
Left Quote Here the whole atmosphere is almost set up to get a startup up and running. In a relatively short period of time, we’ve gone from concept through to having a working demo, and having lawyers say that they see the value in using our product. Edmond Bouelle – CEO, Orbital Witness Right Quote
Left Quote My greatest achievement is that my daughters are proud of me. They understand how hard it was for me to give up a law firm partnership to pursue this difficult path, and there is no greater achievement than that. Catherine Krow – Founder & CEO, Digitory Legal Right Quote
Left Quote The MDR Lab offers a really unique opportunity to embed yourself within a firm, access all decision makers and end users and get that real time feedback in a collaborative way that is so hard to get in the legal sector. We’ve crammed about 2 years of product development into 10 weeks. Denis Ancomb – Founder & CEO, Index Right Quote
Left Quote The insight that you receive is instantaneous, so you can respond and modify product quickly. Katasi Koronde – Solomonic Right Quote
Left Quote Being part of the Lab has helped me realise how lawyers are thinking about how technology can make their lives easier every day. They all had feedback and suggestions. We took that all on board and have released a number of features that are specific to the UK market. Ofer Bleiweiss – Founder & CEO, Everchron Right Quote
