And here is some more about the company which in March 2024, announced its $1.6m pre-seed round led by J12.

‘In big firms, every senior lawyer effectively runs their own practice, but to date, they have lacked modern tools to effectively manage that aspect of their role,’ the company explained.

‘Our AI assistant shifts that paradigm and helps lawyers avoid unnecessary fee discounts and delays to getting paid. It does that by delivering hyper-actionable matter-level insights, straight to the lawyer’s inbox.

‘ayora generates its insights from the firm’s timesheet and billing records, turning the firm’s underlying process data into a profit centre. Our ultimate ambition is to enable lawyers to focus on their core mission, while helping their firms improve utilisation and realisation, and speed up cash conversion.’
