Expedite Legal Announces U.S. Expansion and New President
Seasoned tech executive, Ron Favali, to drive growth of Legal Services Platform
Expedite Legal, the on-demand platform that connects attorneys and paralegals with legal support services, announced it has named tech-industry veteran, Ron Favali, as president. The fast-growing startup also announced plans to expand nationally, with Los Angeles and Houston being the next two target markets.
Expedite addresses the inefficiencies in the $2.3 billion market for court reporting services. The inability to quickly find experienced and available court reporters, videographers and interpreters creates significant delays with court calendars. The Expedite platform removes these barriers by allowing legal teams to book the closest provider with the highest rating, often finding the right resources within seconds.
