LawGeex Press release after featuring on Product Hunt & Hacker News
LawGeex – Legal to the People Draws Huge Response
In just three weeks after LawGeex’s launch on February 10, close to 16,000 people have visited the website to check out the free tool for reviewing legal documents.
Product Hunt was the first major site to take notice of LawGeex, and its readers voted LawGeex into the top 10 of new products for the day.
The word spread quickly, and LawGeex was featured on Law Hackers, the Museum of Beta, Randomstartup, and Tech Stories, among other sites.
Users of the first LawGeex product, for analyzing residential leases, were enthusiastic about it and have asked for new product categories to be added. The LawGeex NDA tool will be available soon, with employment agreements and other legal document types to follow.
Company founder and CEO Noory Bechor, a lawyer himself, notes that:
People often sign legal agreements without even reading them. If they read them, they don’t understand them. And even if they understand them, they don’t know whether they’re getting a good deal or a bad one.
Under the slogan “Legal to the People,” LawGeex empowers users without legal backgrounds to make better legal decisions on their own.
LawGeex uses cutting-edge data mining technology and sophisticated machine learning to identify the type of legal document that’s been uploaded and then compare it to thousands of others that are similar, showing the user what’s standard, what’s unusual, and what’s missing in the uploaded document.
LawGeex doesn’t give legal advice. It won’t tell someone whether or not to sign a contract. Instead, by explaining agreements in plain English and showing how they compare to similar agreements, it lets users make better legal decisions for themselves.
LawGeex was created by an Israeli legal-tech start-up backed by the Israeli government’s Office of the Chief Scientist and incubated by the elite 8200 unit accelerator.
The LawGeex website is at www.LawGeex.com.
