Singapore-based stealth mode startup Lawr.co acqui-hires India’s LawFarm

Lawr.co, a Singapore-based legal tech firm, has acqui-hired India’s LawFarm for an undisclosed amount, according to a press release.

Lawr.co, which has been operating in stealth mode since mid-2015, will now have access to LawFarm’s portfolio of legal Q&A features, lawyer-finding services and in-depth content of updates and news in the legal community.

Post-acquisition, Lawr.co’s plans include providing a unique lawyer-finding service, according to a company statement.

Lawfarm was founded in 2013 by Monalisa Saha and Sreerupa Chowdhury, who will continue to assist in LawFarm’s organic growth.

As part of Singapore’s leading venture builder, Sugar Ventures, Lawr.co has an established advisory board and many experienced technology leaders.

“The acquisition of LawFarm adds to Lawr.co’s potential and scalability in providing bespoke solutions for the public in seeking the right professional for their legal needs, and at the same time positioning itself as a one-stop shop for legal content and updates,” said Jieyang Huang, co-founder of Lawr.co.
