Valla uses data to make legal advice fairer, faster, and more accessible for everyone.

We extract data from judgements using NLP and ML into our data platform, then build products to use that data for key decision points along both a claimant and lawyer's workflow.

Our first tool is an analytics tool for discrimination awards in employment tribunal, answering the basic questions of:

* If this went to court and won, what would the award be?
* What should I put into the schedule of loss?
* What's a good settlement benchmark?
* What cases are most similar to mine?

We are focused on the areas of law that impact everyday people -- employment, immigration, family, housing law. There are 17m people every year who face a legal problem, but most of them can't afford the legal advice they need. We believe that we can use technology to help make basic legal services more accessible - opening up a huge market not just to us, but to law firms as well.

We are focused on the areas of law that impact everyday people -- employment, immigration, family, housing law. There are 17m people every year who face a legal problem, but most of them can't afford the legal advice they need. We believe that we can use technology to help make basic legal services more accessible - opening up a huge market not just to us, but to law firms as well.

There is a rapidly growing trend of self-representing claimants, particularly in employment tribunals where the respondent is almost always represented by counsel and the claimants are not as often as 1 in 3 times. These people need access to affordable basic legal direction - they can use our analytics tool to understand potential outcomes, find relevant cases and prepare their case.

We are also targeting the law firms that operate in high-volume business models - those who are often offering fixed-price services and need to find ways to drive tech-enabled efficiencies while maintaining or even improving the quality of their service. They can use our legal analytics to quickly develop a robust case strategy, integrated into their existing workflow and case management systems.
