SavvySuit Chosen for American Bar Association Startup Alley Competition

Orlando, Fla. (January 08, 2018) – With more than 6,000 people voting nationwide, Orlando-based SavvySuit was one of just 15 companies across the United State and Canada chosen to participate in the American Bar Association’s Startup Alley Competition.

The event, being held in March at the 2018 ABA TECHSHOW in Chicago, will feature the 15 companies in a pitch competition judged by attendees at the convention. ABA TECHSHOW is the largest convention focused on technology specifically targeting the legal industry.

“Being selected to present at this conference will lead to significant growth for our firm as this is the one place where the leaders in legal technology congregate each year,” says Eli Mattern, CEO and general counsel, SavvySuit. “This really showcases how our platform is helping change the industry.”

The participants were chosen by an open voting system with more than 6,000 people participating.

The types of technology represented are wide spread, including time management systems, social media data gathering programs, court reporting technology, and much more.

For SavvySuit, the creation of Florida Pro Bono Matters was a driving force in the firm’s selection. In announcing the participants, the American Bar Association said:

“Learn firsthand how SavvySuit is pushing the legal profession forward with the creation of conversational user interfaces. One such interface is a sophisticated pro bono catalog which allows attorneys to find pro bono cases with ease. This catalog provides case descriptions aggregated from over 30 organizations, including traditional legal aids and nation-wide programs like the ABA Military Pro Bono Project.”

If SavvySuit is picked as the winner of the opening night pitch competition, SavvySuit will receive:

  • One-year Emerging Company membership in Evolve Law.
  • Free booth space at the 2019 TECHSHOW.
  • A profile of the company on Above the Law.
