"We were very impressed with the founding team of InCourt and the way they were conducting their business as it fully aligned to the mission, vision and roadmap for Lawyered." stated Mr. Himanshu Gupta, co-founder and CEO, Lawyered. Lawyered is going through a major growth drive as it positions itself as a national leader in providing legal solutions through a lawyer discovery platform. The acquisition of IC further strengthens Lawyered's expertise in the area of Legal Tech Platform, product innovation and advisory, building a strong ecosystem that connects all parts of its business.
InCourt News (IC) is a legal news app that selects relevant news from multiple sources and judgments from different Courts of India. The app summaries news and judgments in 60 words or less. All summarised stories contain headlines, a brief description along with its background and relevant images. Users get updated with plethora of latest legal updates in a nutshell. Lawyered’s mission being legal empowerment of people, this acquisition will create a synergy between the two solutions.
"We are excited to be part of the Lawyered to accelerate the vision of making it a national leader in the next generation of legal-tech services" stated Sanjay H Aggarwal, Founder, InCourt News. For the next quarter, InCourt plans to increase the outreach and penetration of the application through regular content updates and provide greater social outreach for Lawyered members.
The acquisition is through an equity swap between the two entities. Sanjay Aggarwal from InCourt News is now on board of Lawyered, after the deal.
