Prior to Integreon, he was the president, COO and co-founder of a pioneering Web 1.0 virtual data room technology company (now Merrill DataSite), which he sold in 2001. Liam is a frequent speaker and writer on trends in the legal sector, an active investor in emerging legal technologies and an executive coach for startup founders.

Bill Mooz has over 30 years of experience in helping law departments, law firms and businesses improve their operational efficiency and profitability.
