Announcement Overview

AI Innovator Fileread Secures $6 Million Investment to Reinvent Legal Discovery Process

ComplexDiscovery Staff

In a significant development in the legal tech sector, Fileread, an innovative startup specializing in the application of advanced language learning models (LLMs), has successfully secured a $6 million investment in its seed funding round. The investment was spearheaded by Gradient Ventures, a fund with a strong focus on AI technology, backed by Google, and also saw participation from Soma Capital.

Established in 2020 by a trio of visionaries, Chan Koh, Daniel Hu, and Freya Zhou, Fileread has been at the forefront of developing a unique platform that employs LLMs to expedite and simplify the legal discovery process, a task known for its complexity and time-consuming nature. The platform is currently being utilized in a case that involves the review of over a million documents, managed by a team of 40 to 50 specialists. The LLMs employed by Fileread provide precise responses with references, ensuring the reliability of the information and directing users back to the original sources.

Fileread’s primary objective is to make the legal process more accessible by identifying the most crucial aspects in litigation. The startup intends to utilize the newly acquired funding to expand its team, enhance its product, and investigate additional applications of LLMs in the legal sector.
