Disco received $2 million in its first round of funding today to help lawyers through the e-discovery process of a lawsuit.
During a civil lawsuit, lawyers will go through the “e-discovery” process, which including the collection of evidence to support their case. This might include requesting many documents from the opposing parties and may also include forensic digging for information within a computer. Tools like Disco help organize this element of the lawsuit.
Specifically, Disco has a “hosted review platform, and document production capabilities” that are available on a monthly fee basis.
The round was led by LiveOak Venture Partners and will be used to hire new employees in Disco’s engineering, sales, and operations teams. The company hopes to be able to triple these teams this year as well as grow its Houston, Texas offices.
Disco was founded in 2012 and is based in Houston.
