Google Ventures has led a $600,000 investment in LawPivot, a legal Q&A service. LawPivot will make it less necessary for you to hire a law firm to answer your legal questions. LawPivot will be moving into the Google Startup Lab in Mountain View, California. Startups can write a question and LawPivot will find the answer to it. LawPivot considers themselves as being a “Quora for legal.” All of your questions with LawPivot are private and confidential.
The reason why lawyers provide free answers on the website is so that they can sign potential clients. LawPivot is free for now, but they eventually may charge a monthly fee. Angel investors in LawPivot include Allen Morgan, Deep Nishar, Richard Chen, Chris Yeh, and David Tisch.
