professionals without charging them a commission or trasnc. We will dedicate a
majority of the fresh funds to improve the technology features including
artificial intelligence (AI)-based super bots and discovery tools to boost
engagement on Lawyered.”
While it’s often a challenge for small
companies, startups and individuals to get the right legal support, Lawyered
helps them through its digital platform to get an array of legal experts to
choose from. On the other hand, Lawyered is an aggregating platform for able
legal experts to reachout to their clients.
Mr. Gupta further informed that Lawyered has partnered with 300
co-working spaces across India to leverage on their startup community strength.
Apart from bridging the gap between
legal experts and their clients, Lawyered is a platform for legal studies
enthusiasts too. Lawyered helps legal studies students in getting connected
with their potential employers for internships as well as supporting them with
the right kind of content and case studies for their learning journey.
