French startup Avoloi, the lawyer-client platform, has raised €2.5 million in a round led by West Web Valley, SWEN Capital Partners and Naoleb. The fresh funds will be used to develop its platform, expand its network of lawyers and accelerate the deployment of its solution to new users.
Avoloi, founded in 2012, is a SaaS legaltech startup aiming to do what Doctolib and Doctoralia have done for doctors and patients. Its software suite allows lawyers to increase their presence in front of new clients, as well as let individuals search and access legal expertise and lawyers according to their issues. For lawyers, its software takes care of booking appointments, invoicing and other administrative tasks, speeding up the process for everyone involved.
Platforms such as Avoloi are also responding to today’s growing demand for transparency and accessibility in more traditional sectors like legal services and medicine, removing barriers and giving individuals the chance to know more about professionals before they book an appointment. On the other hand, legal professionals are also given the chance to directly interact with customers and answer their questions, offering a peek into their expertise and approachability.
Founded by Maxime Delauney, the team is steadily growing and will use these fresh funds to continue its platform development. In addition, in 2020 it plans to expand the network of lawyers using the platform to advertise their services, as well as recruit developers to accelerate the deployment of its solution.
