Why we do what we do:

Logikcull’s mission is to democratize discovery. The costs and risks associated with complex data projects like e-discovery, responding to FOIA requests, and conducting internal investigations are skyrocketing as the amount of data increases. Logikcull is transforming these processes so they can be done in minutes, not days — by anyone, anywhere. As a result, our customers — solo attorneys to massive law firms, Fortune 500 companies to leading non-profits — can find and use important information quickly so they can focus on their important work, whether it’s pursuing a better democracy or saving the Earth.

Who we are: is instant discovery for modern legal teams. Its secure, cloud-based solution helps law firms and organizations of all sizes solve the expensive, complex, and risky challenges associated with eDiscovery, internal investigations, and open records response. With Logikcull, you can start a discovery project in five seconds, from anywhere at any time on any device.
