Two lawtech start-ups companies targeting litigation have trumpeted success, with one doubling the investment it has secured and the other signing up 1,500 experts to its system.
Disputed.io has raised £500,000, taking its total investment to over £1m, as it targets two major growth areas in the world of litigation – multi-party claims and third-party funding.
With Tim Berry of TheClaimsGuys one of its existing investors, the latest injection includes funding from TrueSight Ventures, which backs pre-seed and seed-stage start-ups “solving important problems with technology”.
Meanwhile, Brighton-based start-up Xperta, an expert witness ‘marketplace’ which launched in early 2020, now has over 1,500 vetted experts on its books. It said most of the growth has come over the last three months as lawyers increasingly adapt to secure cloud technology whilst working remotely.
