Five startups making law simple, affordable, and accessible in India

Online legal services can be crucial. Lawyers help with everything be it from setting up a business entity, settling disputes, or reviewing contracts. But it is not like everyone has a lawyer on a retainer or if they have the lawyer might not specialize in the type of legal practice one needs for the business or personal needs. Here comes up the need for online legal services.

Legal Tech is a growing industry that uses technology to optimize or provide legal services. There are many purposes that new software can fulfill, such as reducing the cost of services, optimization of time tracking, document storage, making manual legal work easier, and elimination of security risks. It is not surprising that Law Tech is booming. Legal Tech companies develop software that may revolutionize the market or just make professionals’ life easier.
