Yuriy Zaremba has more than a decade of experience related to legal technology, entrepreneurship and practicing law. As General Manager of AXDRAFT, an Onit Company, he is responsible for overall business operations with a focus on enhancing value and growth.
He comes to Onit from the company he co-founded and led, AXDRAFT. AXDRAFT, acquired by Onit in 2020, provides document generation that allows corporate legal departments to draft contracts like NDAs and service agreements up to 10 times faster and complete legal documents in less than five minutes. While there, he raised investments from Y Combinator and top Silicon Valley and European venture capital firms and negotiated and signed contracts from enterprise customers, including Sandoz, Louis Dreyfus Company, Carlsberg and OLX.
Yuriy’s career as a lawyer inspired him to start AXDRAFT. He practiced law at AVELLUM, a leading, full-service law firm in Ukraine, where he advised on deals with values ranging from $20 million to $40 billion, including M&A transactions, loans and IPOs. During his time there, he experienced first-hand the inefficiency and repetition of drafting routine contracts and envisioned a better approach to drafting legal documents with technology.
He has a master’s and bachelor’s degree in Faculty of Law from Ivan Franko Lviv National University.
