We're a growing startup with a real business model, rapid growth, and venture funding from Andreessen Horowitz. We provide document analysis, review, and discovery tools to law firms who need to wade through millions of pages of evidence to find that one needle in the haystack (or sometimes the smoking gun!).

Our CEO has a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley. We compete with better technology combined with a deeper understanding of our users' needs.
