Legaltech software startup Josef has raised $2.5 million led by Carthona Capital, alongside US-based The LegalTech Fund.

The no-code software platform automates legal tasks, including document drafting, to offering legal guidance and advice, and users can even build bots for client interviews.

Founded by two lawyers and an engineer in 2018, the startup previously raised a $1 million seed round in 2019, and hopes to use the fresh cash injection to expand internationally, establishing bases in Europe and North America.

Carthona Capital partner Dean Dorrell said Josef makes lawyers more productive, develops their interactions with their clients and streamlines their operations.

“Our thesis about the legal profession is that you don’t need to replace the lawyers; the opportunity is to enable efficiency in their work, and that’s what Josef is all about,” he said.
