Lawyaw and Clio have had a long-standing data integration and Lawyaw was the first document automation company to offer an app inside of Clio’s app store.
As part of the acquisition, Lawyaw’s team, along with CEO and Co-founder Tucker Cottingham, will join Clio to continue their work connecting and streamlining information gathering, automated document generation, and e-signatures for legal professionals.
“We have been so impressed with the Lawyaw team, their dedication, and innovation in streamlining the creation of important court forms and legal documents,” said Jack Newton, CEO and Founder of Clio.
“Acquiring their business and bringing their team in-house better enables us to support further development of the critical work they are doing for the industry.”
Founded in 2016 by Cottingham, Lawyaw has already made quite the impression on the technology and legal scene, as a part of YC’s Winter ’18 class.
“We’re thrilled to join Clio,” said Tucker Cottingham, Co-founder and now General Manager of Lawyaw. “This accelerates our ability to modernize legal documents and the delivery of legal services.”
This announcement comes weeks after Clio’s acquisition of CalendarRules, which helps law firms manage their court deadlines specific to jurisdictions in all 50 states.
According to Newton, Clio is set to announce further innovations in the coming months at the Clio Cloud Conference.
