When we announced our fundraising back in January, the #1 question we heard was, “So, what are you going to do with all that money?”
Perhaps they were hoping to hear about a secret Vegas trip or new perks like on-site acupuncture or macaroon-making classes. Though our actual investments were less flashy, they were no less important: we invested in our technology and in our people.
Building Our Technology
On the tech front, we’ve created new features and improved existing ones, to make litigation prep that much better:
- In March, we helped you clean up your metadata.
- In April, we made it easy to start reviewing productions you receive, to keep data confidential, and to manipulate documents and search results.
- In May, we made better security self-service, improved predictive coding better, and supported Australian bates numbers.
- In July, we simplified user management, messaging, document assignment, and searching.
- In August, we introduced an early case assessment feature and improved searching, email threads, and admin interfaces.
Building Our Team
Our company culture of openness, collaboration, and constant improvement are what enables us to build such a useful, intuitive, advanced tool. We prioritized finding talented people committed to our company values, and we took our time building up our team.
Then, like we did last year, we asked them why they chose us. Here’s what they said:
Everlaw gives me the opportunity to help grow a startup in a space that’s asking for disruptive technology, and I’m confident the team here has built a platform to fill that need. I’m also constantly learning something new every day from members of my team!

I was introduced to Everlaw by Andreessen Horowitz shortly after the company received its Series A funding and was instantly excited about the prospect of joining the team as the Head of Sales. The combination of Everlaw’s vision for the future of technology in the legal industry and development approach positions the team with an opportunity to transform the market. I’ve joined to support the execution of the go-to-market strategy and to help get our great product in as many lawyers’ hands as possible.

The people and the product. First, the people. The Everlaw team is an amazing group of intelligent, collaborative, compassionate, and hard-working individuals. Next, the product. As a former litigator, I was hooked on Everlaw from the first demo. I knew right away that marketing such an awesome product would be a rewarding job and one that I’d enjoy. My first impressions were spot on!
Lisa, Director of Marketing
Started April 2016
I joined Everlaw because I was thrilled about the opportunity to work with the most talented and respectful people who are dedicated to make the best ediscovery and litigation support software.
