Antonio Maia | CPO & Director

Antonio Maia | CPO & DirectorAntonio Maia is the Chief of Product Development at AI Tech Support Ltd (Robot Lawyer LISA). Antonio qualified as a solicitor in Brazil, Sao Paulo, in 1988 and runs a highly successful litigation boutique (AMSA Law Firm) specialising in litigation law (property/construction sector). Having a keen interest in the future of law, technology and economy of Brazil, in January 2015 he founded Tikal Tech (Tikal), a LegalTech startup aimed at serving young lawyers, consumers, entrepreneurs and small businesses in Brazil.

Since inception he has been heavily involved in Tikal’s progress and growth, having not only invested as the sole stakeholder at that time, but participated in the design, development, marketing and commercialization of its four key product offerings – LegalNote, SeuProcesso, Diligeiro and ELI – Brazil’s first assistant lawyer robot launched autumn 2017.

Antônio also specializes in the regulation of Legal Services, since the Tikal products offered to the market cannot expose Tikal’s clients to the disciplinary sanctions in the OAB.

Since 2016, Antonio has been the author of the blog “Advogados do Futuro” where he discusses legal technology, investment in startups, digital law, behavioral economics, entrepreneurship, legal services, marketing for lawyers and other current ‘hot’ topics.

Given his well-known knowledge of the regulatory aspects related to LegalTech activity in Brazil, and his business experience, Antônio was chosen by his peers as Institutional Relations Director of AB2L, where, among other things, he leads the most relevant discussions related to the coexistence of associates with OAB.

Currently, Antonio has been advising young entrepreneurs, large companies and lawyers to think about their products and services without fear of OAB intervention. Precisely for this reason, he has been invited to talk about Technology and Law from a regulatory perspective at various events. He is a board member of Fenalaw (part of Informa group) which is the largest event in the legal market in Brazil. You can follow Antonio on LinkedIn via
