A team of Gleiss Lutz lawyers has advised the US financial investor Tiger Global on the acquisition of a stake in the German legal tech start-up BRYTER GmbH as part of a round of financing. Tiger Global was lead investor in the financing round, which also included the existing BRYTER investors Accel, Dawn Capital, Notion Capital and Cavalry Ventures. Over the round of financing, BRYTER collected a total of around 66 million US dollars.

Founded in 2018, the German legal tech company BRYTER offers a software platform enabling customers to set up automatic applications for decision-making processes and repetitive tasks without requiring programming skills.

The company will use the capital collected to move ahead with its international development.
