Matthias Knobloch, Managing Partner & CEO at Betatron said, "Our selection process is highly competitive, the companies we invest in have strong traction, are growing quickly, and are led by a team which is ready to take the business to the next level and scale across several markets."

Furthermore, DAI is the MENA region's premier globally-focused Seed and Series A micro-VC composed of experienced and passionate angel investors and partners in VC Funds, to executives of successful companies across the region.

Abdullah Mutawi, Co-Founder & Chairman at DAI, said, "We are really excited about our investment in App4Legal and the opportunity to work with Feras and his team on addressing a major pain point in the legal industry. While App4Legal’s relevance has only increased with COVID-19 and the new work-from-home reality that many lawyers are living, App4Legal’s product suite serves as a boost to both private and in-house legal practices currently suffering from a highly fragmented legal tech ecosystem. 

"In addition to the innovative product suite solving real problems faced by lawyers, what really stands out with Feras and App4Legal is a solid and proven go-to-market and customer acquisition and retention strategy. DAI’s strategy of deploying our money into companies that will achieve capital-efficient scale and whose product is relevant on a global stage is very well served with this investment."

Looking forward to future milestones, Feras El Hajjar, Founder and CEO of App4Legal concluded, "We are appreciative of Betatron and DAI’s trust and confidence in App4Legal’s dynamic management solution and growth plans. With every step App4Legal takes, it keeps three things in mind. Practicing with constant innovation, gaining the trust of our clients, and transforming the narrative associated with the legal industry. We want to elevate the legal practice in a way that changes the life of a legal practitioner for the better."

The newly raised funds will bolster App4Legal’s strategic growth plans across Asia and Europe.
