We are CONNY! With us, you can work on one of the biggest challenges of our legal system: We want consumers to understand their rights and finally make use of them. To this end, we are building Europe's leading Justice-as-a-Service platform www.conny.legal. Here, customers can hire us in the areas of tenancy, employment, and consumer law.
