Nicole Clark was a business litigation and employment attorney before starting Trellis in Los Angeles in 2017 along with Chief Product Officer Alon Schwartz

"We're excited to bring our intelligent AI-powered analytics to new jurisdictions" said Trellis CEO and co-founder Nicole Clark in a written statement. "State trial courts have historically been a black box - where little to no information was accessible. We're turning that black box into a crystal ball."

Clark was a business litigation and employment attorney before starting Trellis in Los Angeles in 2017 along with Chief Product Officer Alon Schwartz, an early Myspace employee who also co-founded unGlue, a modern parental control solution.

Trellis was ranked #2 on the dot.LA/Pitchbook list of hottest L.A. companies published in March. The company most recently raised $4.5 million of Series A seed 2 funding in a deal led by Craft Ventures in February, putting the company's pre-money valuation at $12 million, according to Pitchbook data.

Revel Partners, Okapi Venture Capital, Sequoia Capital, and Intrepid Technology also participated in the round.
