About us 🏢

We’re an award-winning LegalTech-meets-PropTech start-up focused on automating the legal portion of any property transaction.

Property is the #1 asset class in the world and the most significant transaction most people undertake in their lives – but we still rely on a very old-fashioned, opaque legal process to complete any property transaction - we believe change is inevitable and we will build the automated solution that the property industry is crying out for.

Orbital Witness’ technology is already relied on by thousands of lawyers and property professionals at a wide array of blue-chip firms. Customers include every one of the UK’s magic circle law firms (Clifford Chance, Linklaters, Allen & Overy, Freshfields, Slaughter & May) as well as many other prestigious organisations across legal and beyond (incl. Tesla, Marks & Spencer).

Having recently closed a £7.5m Series A funding round 🎉 this is an exciting moment to join Orbital Witness. This funding round comes off the back of a year in which our revenues doubled and we’re now growing our talented team, as well as launching a new Generative AI product to transform residential property transactions…

We’re backed by the best, with investors including some of the world’s largest real estate and insurance companies (incl. JLL, First American Financial and Investec) as well as LocalGlobe and Seedcamp (who backed tech unicorns Zoopla, Wise, UiPath), Outward VC, Seedcamp, Portfolio Ventures and Realty Corporation.

Our vision 🏆

We believe that property transactions in this century shouldn't still rely on lawyers checking through documents and writing reports. We're building an automated AI solution backed by insurance to replace a 150 year old legacy process.

Our mission 💪🏽

Our mission is to make all property transactions more efficient and transparent for every professional or individual involved.

Our values 🐸

  • We are Bold & Ambitious ⚡ (changing an entire industry is hard!)
  • We give Power to our People 💪 (we give exceptional people autonomy to succeed)
  • We Question or Commit 🙋 (we welcome debate, but love reaching quick decisions)
  • … and we Eat that Frog! 🐸 (we take on the hardest thing first)
