Today, legal tech company LawAdvisor Ventures announced it has secured a $5 million seed investment from a host of individual investors, including former Orrick CEO and chairman Ralph Baxter. Other investors include Gildead Science’s head of legal ops Gary Tuly, Microsoft general manger and associate GC Jason Barnwell, and founder of Google Maps and former Facebook engineer director Lars Rasmussen, among others.

LawAdvisor was founded during the height of the COVID-19- pandemic, launching its first two products—collaboration and outside counsel management platform Legaleye and no-code matter and project management tool Fibonacci—in January 2021. Both offerings were developed with input from a steering group of initial legal users, including financial services giant Barclays and a number of its law firms, such as Allen & Overy, Paul Hastings, Ashurst, Bird & Bird and Simmons & Simmons, among others.
