How It Works

1

Describe your project

This could be the lawsuit you want to fund, the research and analysis you propose to conduct, the lobbying effort you want to fund, or the work product you propose to create.

Your project description is kept completely private.  You control who gets to see it!

2

Set your funding goals

This is the amount of money you want to raise for your project.

Your funding goal is also kept completely confidential, and will only be displayed to the people you want to see it.

3

Choose who you want to invite

GroupFund Legal will send emails to the people you want to invite to your project.  No one else gets to see it!

Choose from your existing email contacts, or easily add new ones.

4

Set deadlines

Choose the dates you want your invitees to respond by, and when you want to have your funding confirmed.

5

Launch!

GroupFund Legal does the rest!

Our system will handle all the email invitations, responses, reminders, pricing calculations, and announcements.

This is all done automatically, but GroupFund Legal also allows you to step in and make any manual adjustments you might want along the way.

Examples of Potential Use Cases

-Raise funds for expensive private litigation, by inviting friends or family members

-Easily divide the cost of legal work for a small company among all the stakeholders

-Conduct large scale projects for a number of clients, with each client paying only a fraction of the total cost of the resulting work product

-Easily announce, organize, and manage a “reverse RFP", in which a law firm invites clients to band together to fund the solution to a common problem

-Businesses can also conduct “reverse RFPs", by using GroupFund Legal to invite other affected businesses to share in hiring a law firm

-Trade groups can distribute the cost of expensive lobbying efforts or other endeavours among various interested members

-Clients can use GroupFund Legal to easily divide legal expenses among themselves, or even among business units in the same company

Important Features

Highly Configurable

GroupFund Legal allows you to automate your funding process.  It takes the hassle out of handling all the invitations, responses, pricing, reminders, and confirmations involved.

However, the automation does not force you to do things in a specific way.  The GroupFund Legal system can be adjusted and configured in a wide variety of ways.

Any of the automation settings can be changed to fit your needs.  Plus, you can manually override the automation at any time.

Easily Use Your Existing Contacts

GroupFund Legal allows you to import your email contacts from Microsoft Office 365 and Google email systems with just a few clicks.

You can also import your contacts via CSV (comma separated value) file, which is a standard way of importing and exporting contacts lists.  This means you can easily import your contacts from virtually any online email platform, as well as virtually any desktop email software system.

Or, you can add contacts manually, if you want.

Customize Your Invitations

With GroupFund Legal, you can make your email notices look just how you want them:

  • Add your own law firm or company logo
  • Send emails from your own law firm’s domain name
  • Choose your own colors
  • Use your own text and layout

Or, you can just go with our existing default settings.

Use Your Own Email Address

You can send GroupFund Legal emails from an email address you own!

By default, all emails will be sent from an EffortlessLegal.com email address. However, GroupFund Legal is integrated with Amazon’s Simple Email Service (SES), a popular email delivery service.

You can sign up for a free account at:  https://aws.amazon.com/ses/

Amazon SES is super easy to set up.  Just follow the instructions on the Amazon SES website, and you’ll be up and running in minutes!

Encrypted and Secure

EffortlessLegal takes security seriously.  We do not share or sell your data to anyone.

All transmissions to and from the GroupFund Legal service are encrypted using at least 256-bit SSL certificates, providing strong “bank-grade" security.

All emails, contacts, project descriptions, response and participation information, and other data is stored in your own encrypted database.

Only you have the key to see your data.  No one can see your information except for you.  We can’t even see it!

This means that, even if hackers are somehow able to penetrate our walls, they will still not be able to read your information.
