FOUNDER & CEO
John H. Snyder
Mr. Snyder has nearly two decades experience as a trial lawyer. He is a graduate of Brown University and Harvard Law School and clerked for U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo in Scranton, PA. Mr. Snyder practiced at Proskauer Rose LLP from 2003 to 2010, when he founded his own law firm focused on representing top tech engineers. Snyder co-created an online professional network of Harvard Law graduates with their own law firms called Qounsel. He was motivated to start Agnes as he realized he and Mr. Macartney had the capability and industry knowledge to solve the biggest problem facing the justice system, which is that people cannot access justice due to extreme cost. Agnes was created to solve the most expensive and inefficient problem of litigation, Legal eDiscovery, using advanced AI tech. The Company has commenced a major marketing program to revolutionize how eDiscovery is accomplished. Mr. Snyder is responsible for the overall product concept and management of the Company.
