Atrium is a business-to-business (B2B) company that provides legal services for startups through a tech-based platform. It was founded in 2017 by Justin Kan, Augie Rakow, Bebe Chueh, and Chris Smoak. The company aims to solve three common problems that the founders encounter when accessing legal services: unpredictable pricing, unpredictable response times, and a lack of transparency from the service provider to the client. Atrium is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
Atrium offers four primary services: Atrium Counsel, Atrium Financing, Atrium Contracts, and Atrium FinTech & Blockchain. Atrium Counsel provides a team of paralegal and attorney that can provide legal services such as legal advisory, contracts review, and compliance of employment-law through a subscription and project-based model of payment. Atrium Financing offers legal counsel for startups who are seeking funding from venture capital firms. Atrium Contracts focuses on helping clients prepare and review legal contracts. Atrium FinTech & Blockchain aids clients operating in the financial technology and blockchain industry to navigate the regulations that affect them.
Since its establishment, Atrium has received $75.5 million in funding through three funding series, with its latest being a Series B funding round which was held in September 2018 and raised $65 million. As of March 2019, the company has 99 investors, with two lead investors. Some venture capital firms who have funded Atrium are Sound Ventures, Y Combinator, Andreessen Horowitz, and Socii Capital.
