Mixing it with the big boys: Law tech upstarts approach adolescence following cash influx

The future is hard to predict in the combustible world of law tech start-ups. But recent big funding rounds for some of the industry’s darlings signal an increasing maturity in the space with Kira, Apperio, Eigen Technologies and Legatics all receiving hefty funding rounds in recent months.

Kira further secured its spot as the leading AI platform for law firms after landing a record $50m of private equity backing from New York-based Insight Venture Partners in September. The investment was the first external backing for the company since its inception, with the machine-learning contract analysis platform now primed for continued growth.
