CS Disco Inc. makes the best legal technology in the world. Our first product, Disco, is e-discovery software that helps lawyers find evidence faster in the tens of millions of documents reviewed in major cases and investigations. We are animated by what we call the inventor's spirit: solving hard, important problems from first principles with a team of world-class engineers and lawyers. CS Disco Inc. was founded by Kiwi Camara, Kent Radford, Gabe Krambs, and Barry Hagan in 2012 and launched its first product, Disco, in January 2013.
A lawyer with a B.S. in computer science, Kiwi earned his J.D. at 19 from Harvard Law School, clerked for Judge Harris Hartz of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, was a Ph.D. student in economics at Stanford, taught corporate law at Northwestern, and was a founding partner of Camara & Sibley LLP in Houston. His articles on constitutional law, corporate law, and international law have been published in the Yale Law Journal and the Journal of Corporation Law.
