Connecting The World Ltd (trading as Legal Connection) is on a mission to democratise the Trillion-Dollar legal profession, enabling networks of legal professionals to compete with large partnership firms. They have developed a platform that aims to fuse client-centred, collaborative workflows and the next generation of financial technology.

  • Bootstrapped product with strong technical co-founders
  • Selected by Antler VC for pre-seed investment of £120k
  • First-to-market with our unique integration with Shieldpay
  • Letters of intent from law schools, law firms and legal networks

Idea

The global legal services market is worth $1,000,000,000,000 and is famously resistant to change. A small number of global partnership firms enjoy the bulk of the high-paying work while smaller firms and solo practitioners often struggle to run a sustainable practice.

The UK leads the world in being a friendly regulatory environment for freelance lawyers and virtual firms. We believe with the right technology, lawyers can group together to provide a comparable service to the large firms at a fraction of the price.

Legal Connection is an n-sided network market for the legal profession. Using Legal Connection, lawyers connect with their peers to form project-based collaborations. The product looks like a social networking tool but functions like a legal case and practice management suite. All work takes place in secure chat rooms, making it perfect for remote teams. Lawyers are able to leverage 3rd party managed accounts to hold client money and execute transactions.

In 2019, Legal Connection was selected as one of 13 startups with high growth potential by Antler VC who invested £120k pre-seed. The funds were used to further develop and validate the product within various UK firms and global legal networks.

The team is now raising a seed round on Crowdcube to grow their user base, continue product development and roll out a set of cutting edge new features to power the future of law.

Legal Connection has been given advance assurance by HMRC that the proposed share issue is likely to qualify for Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) tax relief.

Tax relief is available to individuals only, with income tax relief currently set at 50 per cent of the cost of the shares for the tax year in which the investment was made. The tax reliefs can also reduce your Capital Gains Tax bill. Read More.

Availability of tax relief depends on your individual and the company’s ongoing circumstances and applicable law.
