BROOKLYN, NY — August 2, 2023 — Litify, the legal industry’s leading operating platform for law firms and in-house legal departments, today announced the most successful quarter in the company’s history as they also appoint software executive Curtis Brewer as CEO.
In the second quarter of 2023, Litify achieved a record amount of growth while continuing to expand profitability. The significant momentum comes on the heels of Bessemer Venture Partner’s investment in the company in February 2023. The investment accelerated Litify’s expansion into big law, insurance defense, in-house legal departments, government agencies, and nonprofit legal teams, building upon the company's expertise in litigation and personal injury law.
The legaltech company looks to further accelerate its growth through the appointment of software executive Curtis Brewer as CEO. Brewer brings deep expertise in scaling and operating vertical software businesses, with an impressive track record in delivering a platform approach to fragmented industries. Prior to joining Litify, Brewer served as CEO of Davisware, a leading ERP software company for commercial field service providers. He also previously worked on the executive team for TravelClick, leading the reinvention of its hospitality Central Reservations and CRM divisions. From these experiences, Brewer brings a needed perspective to legal as the industry continues to move toward platformization, interoperability, and cloud-based digital transformation.
“Litify stands out to me as a modern software solution for legal that’s flexible enough to support the needs of the entire industry. My expertise is in taking a platform-based technology approach that delivers customer value through unique insights and automation. The team at Litify has been on a mission to do just that for legal, and I’m eager to join and share my experience,” said Curtis Brewer.
While there has been a lot of progress toward technology adoption in legal over the last few decades, there’s still work to do to move toward platformization. Going forward, this shift has become increasingly important in the face of new innovations such as artificial intelligence. According to a recent report from Litify on the State of AI in 2023, 60% of respondents don’t believe the sector is ready to use artificial intelligence tools to their full extent or capability. The first step toward AI preparedness will be the adoption of centralized platform technology.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Curtis to our team after such a tremendous quarter. His expertise and proven track record in scaling high-growth technology companies will help Litify bring more direct value to our customers through new and innovative offerings. His belief in a platform approach echoes our company’s mission to connect the legal industry and indicates he’s the ideal addition to our team,” said Litify President & COO Ari Treuhaft.
