Advocat was founded to make contracting accessible to all

At Advocat, we’re changing the way legal tech works. Say goodbye to expensive services, lengthy onboarding processes and complex software. We've created a contract management platform that's built just for you. With affordable pricing, instant implementation, and an intuitive interface, our AI-driven tool empowers your team to easily manage contracts with confidence.

Founder Story

As the founder and CEO of Advocat, Pradnya is also an attorney and was Managing Partner of Desh International and Business Law, an award-winning ten-attorney law firm in the Seattle-area. Formerly, Pradnya was a U.S. diplomat in the State Department, and a U.S. trade negotiator with USTR in Geneva. She represented the United States in international organizations, including the WTO and the UN Committee on Trade and Development.

While being a law firm attorney, Pradnya saw first-hand a broken legal process – expensive, clumsy, and negatively impacting both companies and the humans running them. She set out to solve that problem through AI technology, and Advocat was born. Pradnya’s mission is to make legal technology more accessible for all businesses so they can save time, money, and have a better work experience.

Our Values

  • We strive to make legal work joyful, not tedious.

    Work should always be engaging. We free up lawyers to focus on more important and satisfying work.  

  • We empower legal and business to work in harmony.

    We believe legal and business should never see each other as barriers, but as trusted and valued partners.

  • We believe law should be driven by purpose, not process.

    We give lawyers time to dig into the why, and go way beyond the how.

  • We re-imagine law through design.

    We accomplish our goals of transforming legal practice by leveraging design thinking and a focus on every user.
