AI enquiries startup announces Paul Saunders as latest investor

AI enquiries startup Collaborative Conveyancing has announced Paul Saunders as the latest investor supporting its plans to introduce an automated solution for property lawyers to classify enquiries and structure responses.

Paul, a well-recognised industry figure within the conveyancing profession, has been Managing Director for compliance firm Legal Eye for six years, Managing Director at Amity Law for two years, as well as holding The Director of Lending role within Smoove plc.

Prior to that, Paul one of the owners of a successful regional practice which merged with Shakespeare Martineau in 2013 where he was a Board member for Real Estate and Head of Residential.

Paul’s investment comes a month after David Newnes’ investment, securing additional finance alongside a substantial grant from Innovate UK.

With transaction turnaround times continuing to increase, Paul believes that Collaborative Conveyancing is a timely and well-thought out solution to the elongated conveyancing enquiries process.

With transaction times continuing to increase, the investment will allow the technology company, founded by Chris Harris and Karen Babington, to accelerate the launch of their first product to market quicker than originally anticipated.

Paul Saunders said:

“Technology rarely looks at helping us with the technical side of conveyancing. Enquiries are ever-increasing and hard to identify, so this is a great product which will have the attraction of reducing the time that is taken on conveyancing cases.

I feel strongly that this product will save conveyancers a vast amount of time, make the job more enjoyable and contribute to speed up transaction times which has to be one of the biggest problems we face in the residential property market right now.”

Chris Harris, co-founder and CEO, Collaborative Conveyancing said:

“We are thrilled to welcome Paul as a strategic partner and investor. Paul’s expertise in the conveyancing sector and shared vision for the future align perfectly with our vision to take the pain out of the way conveyancing enquiries are dealt with, enabling shorter transaction times for the benefit of all concerned.”
