The Pitch winners on tackling data in the legal industry

By Yves Faguy May 7, 20187 May 2018


Last week in Toronto, Digitory Legal walked away the top prize at The Pitch, the legal innovation startup competition put on by the Canadian Bar Association and Law Made in partnership with LexisNexis. The outfit, based in the San Francisco Bay Area has built a cost analytics and management platform for law firms and corporate legal departments. We spoke its CEO and founder, Catherine Krow, about the challenges facing law firms in getting a handle over their data.

We also spoke to Puneet Tiwari and Nilesh Pandey, the co-founders of Evichat, which walked away with the people’s choice award. Evichat has developed a product, rapidly gaining in popularity among litigators, that helps lawyers easily collect and review evidence from clients' cell phones.


Martine Boucher, the founder of Simplex Legal, an in-house legal counsel boutique, co-hosted the event with Jason Moyse. "This was a group of really talented young start-ups, and I was impressed to see how far they have all come already in developing their products,” said Boucher. “I think it's a sign of some of the interesting developments we are going to see in the legal industry in the coming years."
