More About Steno

Steno was founded in Los Angeles in 2018. We are a quickly growing legal technology startup with a very simple core purpose - “to improve the litigation process.” Our team is highly reliable, constantly innovative, and operates with a hospitality mindset in every single way. Seriously. While this is a fast-paced environment, the opportunity for growth is abundant. 

In the last year, Steno has grown from just 9 employees in Los Angeles to over 80 employees across the nation and works fully remote. Our team is incredibly diverse and has a unique blend of backgrounds in law, technology, operations, and finance. Though not many of us have met in person, we are a cohesive team that has produced amazing results in just a short time. 

Steno developed a new style of deferred litigation financing called DelayPay and Steno Connect, a web-based videoconferencing platform specifically designed for remote depositions and bench trials. And, to top it off, we are growing as a prominent court reporting agency in several major US markets.  

Steno just closed a Series A round of funding led by Trust Ventures. With seed investments from First Round Capital, Human Ventures, and others, we’ve raised $13 million in total. This capital not only helps us invest in our business and product but also in our people. We know that without our people, we’d have nothing. So, we offer amazing health and time off benefits, complete home office outfitting, and additional perks that make our culture unique.
