Kim Opens New Atlanta Office to Support US Growth

Kim, the document generation, assembly and workflow automation platform, created by British legal tech entrepreneur Karl Chapman, has opened a second office in the US, this time in Atlanta, Georgia.

The company said the move follows ‘the launch of Kim Document, continued growth with existing customers, plus new customer wins’. Its other US office is in New Jersey.

Kim started in 2013 and was closely linked to Riverview Law, which Chapman also created. The ALSP was later sold to Big Four firm EY in 2018. Today the independent legal tech business of Kim is focused on pioneering the document management space by creating a platform that offers a no-code workspace to handle a wide range of document-related needs.

Below are some of the capabilities it offers:

As the company explained: ‘At the product tier Kim Document allows any function or role in a small, medium or large organisation, to turn its existing Word documents into web applications that can be shared internally and/or externally.

‘Use cases are primarily, but not exclusively, focused on four core areas – Compliance and Regulators; Corporate Legal Departments and Law Firms; Financial Services and Insurance; and Franchising.’

Chapman, CEO of Kim, added: ‘We know that you can build big businesses, even in difficult times, if you have solutions that deliver customer use cases quickly, at price points that drive a high ROI.

‘Not only do we have such products, including Kim Document we also have a business that, at our Enterprise level, is underpinned by long-term contracts with Fortune 500 companies. Indeed, this is a good moment to record our thanks to our customers for their help and insight. They have supported us over many years and, as per this announcement, we will continue to support them.’

Chapman noted that additional growth was planned. He also explained why the company had chosen Atlanta: ‘Although we have a well-developed, flexible and remote working model, earlier this year we identified the need for an additional US office to support our existing customers, plus our pipeline.

‘Having looked at several locations, it proved a simple decision to select Atlanta. The talent pool combined with the technology tradition built around the Georgia Institute of Technology, and its tech start-up and growth incubator ATDC (Advanced Technology Design Center), were decisive.’
