Legatics, the leading legal transaction management platform, has appointed David Biggs as Chief Financial Officer. Biggs joins Legatics from Farewill, the digital will and probate provider, and he will work with the board and the growing executive team to help scale the business.
Biggs has over 15 years of experience as a chartered accountant, and has spent the last 12 years working with leadership teams to effectively scale fast growth technology businesses. Biggs has also served as an advisor on the boards of startups and scaleups for 6 years. Utilising that experience, Biggs will advise Legatics on capital allocation and growth strategies, following the business’s £3 million growth financing round in June 2021.
Welcoming Biggs to the company, Anthony Seale, Legatics CEO, said: "David brings a wealth of SaaS scaling experience to Legatics. That experience complements the legal and software expertise within the company, and will make him an integral part of the leadership team. This is a new phase for Legatics and I believe that our growing leadership team adds a huge amount of functional expertise to take Legatics to the next stage of our journey."
In addition to Biggs’s appointment, Legatics has made three additions to its senior leadership team. Steve Wheeler, Steve Brown and Tina Faghihi have joined the company, as CTO, Head of Marketing and Head of Customer Success, respectively, and each will bolster core business initiatives that reflect Legatics’s continued focus on putting customers first, simplifying its legal transaction management technology, strengthening financial growth, and driving adoption in new markets.
Biggs adds: "It’s rare to come across a great product solving real problems so effectively and I'm looking forward to helping scale the Legatics business and working with a phenomenal team. Everyone realises there’s a huge opportunity for innovation in law, and Legatics is at the forefront of innovation in legaltech."
