What happens when two lawyers decide to start a technology company on an idea? Amir discovered through practicing law that the time consuming elements in closing deal transactions could be simplified and be made more cost efficient.  In short, he saw a business opportunity that technology could resolve.



How did it all start? Amir quickly realized that two lawyers as co-founders alone did not know how to build and sell the technology, and that they needed experts to build out the technology and the organization. He brought Mike onto the team to develop the software, and Teruel to lead the sales. He shares his journey from taking the leap from law to where dealcloser™ is today.
