About Us

Knomos is built around a team of passionate people driven to solve a systemic professional challenge for the benefit of all. Organizing legal information, evolving the practice of law for the 21st century, and improving citizen access to justice.

Knomos employs modern app design principles grounded in the user experience to deliver more powerful legal tools. From law students learning in the classroom, to lawyers better serving their clients, and engaged citizens managing their practical legal affairs.

At Knomos, we focus on technology-driven solutions that change the practice & business of law in the information sharing economy. We’re committed to building knowledge sharing tools that enable lawyers to evolve from gatekeepers of legal information to “legal sherpas”, helping clients get where they’re going.

It’s not just a good idea, it’s the law.

The law is a complex network of facts, concepts and precedents, and it’s evolving constantly. If you just look at it in a granular way, you can easily miss the relationships and emergent patterns.

We’re observing how data visualization systems are being applied to complex, dynamic processes, giving non-experts insights into trends by representing big data in more intuitive formats like dashboards, heatmaps, and clusters.
