Tampa entrepreneur Abeer Abu Judeh has built a cloud-based platform to empower minority attorneys to conduct legal affairs.
The platform called LexDock was launched in 2018, but it didn’t start taking off until 2019. It offers a legal concierge platform that features a cloud-based subscription software solution where businesses and organizations can conduct all of their legal affairs in one secure location.
“We want to try to equalize the playing field so minority attorneys could build a book of clients. It took us months to build this platform,” said Abu Judeh, who has over 15 years of legal practice.
Abu Judeh said she wanted to find a solution to help attorneys manage tasks and sources while helping close the gap on work for minority attorneys.
LexDock is one of the 15 companies in the TechWomen Rising accelerator program.
Abu Judeh also recently attended the annual SaaStr Annual 2021 in San Fransisco.
“I was supposed to come to SaaStr last year to seek investor funding, but everything was shut down due to the pandemic. We then hunkered down and continued development and added features and tools,” she said.
“Our business model and goal is to attract enterprise accounts. We’d like to attract firms like JPMorgan, Coke, Intel that have a demand for legal services and commitment to diversity, and can pledge outside legal spend to offset working with marginalized attorneys,” Abu Judeh said.
Abu Judeh has bootstrapped her company. Once her startup builds partnerships and can land a significant account, the next goal will be to raise funds.
She currently has three employees and hopes to add more engineers and sales support to her team.
