Trellis: Legal Intelligence tabs Alon Shwartz as Co-Founder/Chief Product Officer

Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (OPENPRESS) State trial court data and analytics company Trellis Research lands Alon Shwartz, as Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer. Shwartz is a career entrepreneur and prominent LA tech exec who previously co-founded Docstoc - an original TechCrunch40 company - that helped small businesses and professionals find the legal documents and content they needed to start, and grow, their businesses. As CTO at Docstoc, the startup grew rapidly and was ultimately acquired by Intuit (INTU) in 2013. Shwartz was also the CEO and founder of unGlue, a modern parental control solution, as well as two other la based startups. Prior to founding docstoc in 2007, Shwartz was a product manager at MySpace.

Shwartz continues to be an active investor, advisor, and coach to multiple LA based startups helping to nurture the LA tech community. "I've gotten to know this team as an advisor since Trellis' early days and there is no team with whom I'd rather be working!" Shwartz said in a statement. "We are extremely fortunate to have Alon join our team." says Nicole Clark, Trellis' CEO and Co-Founder. "His business experience and technical acumen have already had an immediate impact on the growth of our company."

In addition to landing Shwartz, and putting in place the building blocks of a powerful executive team, Trellis just announced the closing of an additional $4.4M dollar funding round which was led by Craft Ventures. Craft Ventures is a SF based venture capital firm founded by notable entrepreneur David O. Sacks which has invested in startups such as Bird, Reddit, and SpaceX.

In addition to Craft, VC firms such as Okapi, Revel, Intrepid were all excited to participate in this round. [quote from VC?]

Trellis currently operates the largest searchable database of California Superior Court records and judicial analytics. In 2020, Trellis will expand coverage to the state courts of New York, Texas, Florida, and Delaware allowing litigators to access historically inaccessible state court data and gain strategic insights on judges and opposing counsel.
