Just Go Grind Podcast: How Trellis Co-Founder Nicole Clark Built a Product to Solve Litigator Pain Points
On this week's episode of Just Go Grind, hear from Nicole Clark, co-founder and CEO of Trellis, a research platform for litigators aimed at democratizing access to the law by making state trial court records and legal data more accessible. Trellis lets users search records in ways they wouldn't otherwise be able, including by subject, opposing counsel, judge and company.
- Trellis takes data from individual state courts and makes it searchable on a single interface. The platform also provides analytics on judges and litigation at the trial court level as well.
- Clark says she was scared to take the leap to leave her law firm to fully commit to Trellis, but describes the desire to start the company as a compulsion, the pain point felt so obvious and important to solve.
- Fundraising for Clark was extremely time-consuming. She recommends raising quickly in order to get back to running the business.
- The growth trajectory for Trellis took off after they moved to a freemium customer acquisition model.
"You don't need to get your team perfect from day one. What you need to do is get a team that allows you to get to that next step. — and that next step." — Nicole Clark
Nicole Clark is the co-founder and CEO of Trellis. She previously worked as a litigator at various law firms. She graduated from Rutgers School of Law.

Nearly a year into the worst pandemic in a century, Los Angeles companies expecting to snap up office space on the cheap may be disappointed.
L.A. office rents have held steady or even gotten pricier since COVID, even as more space has become available as most employees continue to work from home.
"I honestly thought rents would have dropped by now," said Michael Soto, research director at the brokerage Savills Inc. "For a lot of tenants, they are still seeing a bit of sticker shock that prices haven't dropped yet."
