Briefd (Pty) Ltd is a legal tech company that has developed a web-based and mobile application for Legal Practitioners. The Briefd app enables streamlined and efficient communication between Advocates and Attorneys, facilitating the solicitation and obtaining of legal services required by Attorneys to be performed by Advocates.

The app provides a platform where Attorneys can create and list available briefs to Advocates, and Advocates can receive notifications of available briefs that match their experience level and field of expertise. Advocates can then apply for or accept the brief, depending on the terms and requirements set out by the listing Attorney.

The Briefd app is designed to make the process of obtaining legal services simpler, faster, and more cost-effective. By using Briefd, Legal Practitioners can focus on providing high-quality legal services to their clients, without the hassle of traditional communication methods.

Briefd is committed to providing innovative solutions that improve the legal industry by leveraging technology. The company is headquartered in Gauteng Province, and the Pretoria Attorneys Association has partnered with Briefd (Pty) Ltd for service in the Gauteng Province.
