A new legal startup is launching to the public soon, hoping to shake up the legal documents space. LA-based DocRun is announcing that it has raised $1.1 million in seed funding from VC Michael Hirshland’s new fund, Resolute.vc, Google’s Don Dodge, and Kima Ventures.
While some details of what DocRun is doing are still unclear, but we know the startup is trying to disrupt the online legal documents and advice space, but by adding quality, personalized documents to the mix as opposed to simply offering form contracts like LLC agreements, rental agreements and more. DocRun wants to provide highly customized, attorney-level, state-specific legal documents at a fraction of what they would cost from a lawyer.
At public launch, DocRun will eventually provide hundreds of personalized documents, including everything from prenuptial agreements to operating agreements to employment agreements, all specially tailored to each individual user using an adaptive Q&A engine.
The startup is the brainchild of CEO Jennifer Reuting, who has actually founded two legal startups previously, InCorp, a registered agent and compliance firm, and MyLLC, and company that helps companies incorporate as businesses. She’s also the author of Limited Liability Companies For Dummies.
There are a number of companies who offer form legal documents on the web including LegalZoom and Rocket Lawyer. As Reuting explains, the aim of DocRun is to democratize the legal space by not only providing legal documents to consumers, but also to offer tools that can fully customize personal and business documents.
The startup is in invite-inly alpha right now but stay tuned.
