Leegality Funding Alert


Leegality has raised a USD 5 million Series A Round led by IIFL Fintech Fund. Mumbai Angels Network also participated in the round.

Over the past few years, our Document Infrastructure Platform has been enabling Indian businesses to digitally transform their document/agreement logistics in a fast, easy and compliant way - turning a painful process into a competitive advantage.

Today, Leegality is live in 1500+ top Indian businesses - including group entities from 8 out of the top 10 banking conglomerates in India.

Since 2020, we’ve grown our quarterly revenue by over 13x and our employee strength by 7x, while also being cash flow positive. 

Shivam Singla - Founder and CEO of Leegality  “Across the length & breadth of the economy, formal business relationships are founded on the execution of documents. But physical paperwork causes severe delays, shackles teams, increases costs, destroys customer experience and poses significant legal risks. Think of the revenue companies lose because their salespersons are running around getting documents executed instead of selling, or the risk a small business owner faces when an urgent loan is stuck for days because of pending paperwork.

We estimate that in the Indian lending ecosystem alone, more than 60 crore digital paperwork transactions are needed annually to completely eliminate physical paperwork. Now, imagine what is needed to make the entire economy paperless.  Leegality is addressing this gap head-on with first of its kind digital infrastructure built for Indian ground realities and core compliance needs . In 5 years, Leegality will be the standard way to execute documents in India. Physical paperwork will become the exception. We are proud to receive the support of the IIFL Fintech Fund on this journey.”

The need for Document Infrastructure is even more acute today - due to rapid regulatory developments like RBI’s digital lending guidelines (which impose new digital paperwork requirements for Banks/NBFCs lending through fintechs) and the new IT Act amendment which now allows digitization of immovable property contracts and power of attorneys.

A few words from our investors

“Digitization is a major priority of all major BFSI companies today. We are super impressed with the expertise of the Leegality team and the depth of  their offerings. We have seen the impact of Leegality’s solutions first-hand, and  we are confident that Leegality is very well placed to tap on the digitization wave in the BFSI sector. This is the first major early stage investment into a legal-fintech company in India, and we are proud to enable it.” said Mehekka Oberoi, Fund Manager, IIFL Fintech Fund. 

“Digitizing documentation in a legally compliant way is a hard problem, especially in regulated industries.  From its inception, Leegality has been innovating from the ground-up - focused on accelerating document logistics in a fast and compliant way. This approach has led to building a truly differentiated product that customers have come to love & trust.”said Nandini Mansinghka, CEO of Mumbai Angels Network
