The Safari storyOur core team met in the early 2000s, as the promise of legal technology was just beginning to be realized. Our goal was to change the way corporate law departments manage legal work—and two decades later we're still at it.
2002Our first venture was an online matter management and e-billing system that we named Serengeti Tracker, reflecting the diverse ecosystem we created for legal collaboration (plus we loved the animals).
Our 1st trip to Africa
2006Serengeti was consistently ranked #1 in customer satisfaction and became the most widely-used legal platform with 40k law firms in 190 countries working with hundreds of law departments.
The accolades pile up
The accolades pile up
2010After building a diverse client list ranging from Fortune 100s (Amazon, Disney, American Express) to companies with just one in-house attorney, we decided to sell to Thomson Reuters and keep growing.
Acquisition by TR
2016After a few years we headed our separate ways, but still met up to swap ideas over coffee. Some of us built new legal start-ups, meeting more great people and picking up new insights along the way.
2019On a rainy Seattle afternoon, the core group of founders were thinking about building something new together. "What about that feature request we kept getting back in our Serengeti days?"
Back together again
2020We did our homework, talked to a lot of law departments, and learned that ten years later there was still no system designed for responding to subpoenas. We decided to take it on: Safari was born.
