Dear Lawtrades community,
I’m thrilled to announce that Lawtrades has raised $6 million from 100+ of the world’s top investors, customers, and operators to create an enduring legal marketplace for the next 100 years.
2021 was a great year for Lawtrades.
We grew the team from 6 to 15. Released our iOS testflight app to beta users. Doubled the number of active engagements. Helped legal freelancers earn $12m on the platform to date.
Now what does this mean for you?
- Lawtrades will become simpler, faster, and more reliable. Our product feels great today, but it needs to be best-in-class, like any other product you deeply love. I’m excited to spend the majority of this round to hire world-class engineers and designers.
- Rebrand. We’ll be unveiling a brand refresh with a new name and logo to better reflect our 10 year vision.
- You’ll be better supported. We believe that nothing beats the experience of being helped by a real human at every step of your journey. Regardless of how much more self-serve our product becomes, we’ll continue to invest in customer support and our own community so that each and every one of you receive the support, guidance, and education to build thriving remote legal teams.
- We’re in this for the long-term. As a revenue-generating business and with our new fundraise, I hope you know that we’re in this journey with you for a long, long time to come.
Lawtrades is not just another legaltech company. It’s a platform that reflects a new era of work on the internet. It's an entirely new form of entrepreneurship that's wild and free of corporate constraints.
Our vision is to expand economic opportunity in the world by bringing every member of the global workforce online.
I wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped us get to this point - our customers, our talent network, our team, and our investors - this adventure is just getting started, and we’re grateful for your early belief in us.
