Copenhagen-based Legal Desk, a startup that aims to be the leading provider of legal documents for businesses and consumers, announced that it has raised $3.3M (approximately €3M) in a Series A round of funding.
The round saw participation from a group of private investors, including Michael Haaning, former board member at Ellos Groups, Gina Tricot, and Unisport. With this investment, Haaning will join Legal Desk’s board of directors.
The legaltech startup aims to digitize and automate the legal industry throughout the Nordics.
It believes the industry is in dire need of democratization as legal services and legal security have been limited to one who can afford them and who has time to meet with lawyers.
The proceeds from this round will help the company to expand into different geographies and take another step towards democratizing legal services.
Legal Desk’s co-founder, Simon Eklund, told EU startups, “The traditional legal services industry has yet to embrace technology when it comes to providing more standardized legal services. I think we are going to see platforms like ours play a much bigger role – also in interaction with the traditional law practices. Accounting, payroll, and administration are clear examples of how digitization has become a welcomed part of the practice, and we hope to see the same in our industry. We believe that we can become the primary platform for legal services throughout the Nordic region.”
