Entrepreneur Nikhil Nirmel W08 first became interested in the legal industry when he realized that while most legal work can be done remotely, very little is. He founded Lawdingo to streamline the process, reduce the cost of finding an attorney, and connect consumers with lawyers on demand and remotely. After several years of trial and error, Nirmel repurposed the company toward offering virtual, project-based paralegal services to law firms and corporate legal departments. Now, Lawdingo screens candidates free of charge to find the right legal professional to fit the consumer’s needs, from paralegals and law clerks to transcriptionists and court reporters, and provides an online platform for assigning work, generating invoices, and more. The startup has received seed funding from Y Combinator and various angel investors and earned Nirmel a spot on the Forbes 2015 “30 Under 30” Law and Policy list.
