About company

GC AI is an AI platform for in-house lawyers to 10x themselves. Using the latest LLMs, we are building AI agents that can use company knowledge, leverage external sources, and connect with internal tools to provide better and faster legal advice to the rest of the company. Our founder and CEO is an AI visionary, three-time general counsel, and longtime in-house counsel for tech companies including Amazon, and our cofounder is an AI engineer obsessed with outstanding customer experiences in software.  

We are venture-funded, seed-stage, and building a world-class team. Legal AI is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build for a $300B annual market in the pinnacle vertical of AI, as recognized by everyone including Supreme Court Justice Roberts who says that legal work “may soon be unimaginable” without AI. This is a role worth leaving your FAANG job for. Trust. 😎
