Kathy Constan - Women in Fintech

Kathy is the Founder and CEO of LodgeX, an new fintech startup based in Melbourne.

Having achieved many of her professional goals in running a successful practice for over two decades, Kathy Constan realised she needed a new challenge. Observing the advent of legal technology and how it could reshape the legal profession, she dived in.

About five years ago, Kathy Constan (pictured) took stock of her career.

She had founded her firm, Hercules Constan Lawyers – a boutique Melbourne-based practice specialising in water law and commercial litigation – in 1993 and had served as its principal since that time: almost 29 years.

Her practice, she told Lawyers Weekly, had provided legal services delivered in “two distinct ways”: process-driven or rote, repetitive high-volume work and detailed, advisory, specialised consultative work.

She believed, she said, that the legal profession would continue along this dichotomy, amidst the advent of legal technology.

Such thinking led her to establish LodgeX, an e-conveyancing and lodgement solution that uses a bespoke platform, Lapp.

According to the solution’s website, “the idea was to create something that successfully combined legal tech with conveyancing/legal practice, which would become an integral part of shaping the future of how we all work together to make settlements happen smoothly and efficiently”.
