We love legal, almost as much as we love building software

Clients and law firms felt nothing but pain when dealing with RFPs, so we built the PERSUIT platform to take away that pain.

Our Story

Our time in BigLaw firms showed us the gross inefficiencies in engaging outside counsel - for both corporates and law firms. In the age of technology, where other departments and industries are using sophisticated tools and automated workflows, we couldn’t understand how the legal function was still stuck in manual processes and spreadsheets.

Self Starter

Everyone on our team has the freedom to get results done their way. We breed enthusiasm and expect and empower everyone on our team to own their job; not rent it.

We believe in the human side of B2B relationships. At PERSUIT, we are focussed on real, authentic relationships and true partnerships. This is the cornerstone of what we do and who we do it with.

Collaboration

Everyone gets to throw their ideas forward and we are always learning from one another. As category creators, there is no tried and tested way to do things - together we are creating our own path.

Adventurous

We are on an adventure of disruption and challenging the legal status-quo. Our team are daring, have an appetite for the less worn path and a willingness for the unknown.

Leadership

Our leadership team consists of lawyers and engineers, providing our team with an acute understanding of the unique requirements of legal and technology, to build a platform that even lawyers love.
