CS Disco, Inc. (“DISCO”) (NYSE: LAW) today announced that Kiwi Camara, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, has decided to step down from his roles as Chief Executive Officer and a member of the board of directors.
Scott Hill has been named as Chief Executive Officer, to serve on an interim basis while the board of directors searches for a permanent successor. Mr. Hill has served as a member of DISCO’s board of directors since June 2021 and was previously Chief Financial Officer of Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE). Mr. Camara has indicated that he will make himself available to assist Mr. Hill during the transition.
Since its founding in 2013, DISCO has grown from a startup to a global leader in AI-powered legal technology. DISCO has more than 1,400 customers, including many of the largest law firms and legal departments in the world. Earlier this year, DISCO announced the launch of Cecilia, an AI chatbot that allows lawyers to ask natural language questions and get narrative responses, with citations to evidence, based on documents in private DISCO Ediscovery databases.
“DISCO was founded on the idea that better technology can improve legal outcomes and improve the experience of practicing law,” said Krishna Srinivasan, chair of DISCO’s board of directors. “Now, we look forward to continuing our technology leadership by applying the latest advances in AI to legal problems. We are grateful to Kiwi for his vision, passion, and dedication to DISCO over the past decade.”
“It has been an incredible experience growing this business from an idea to an industry leader,” said Camara. “DISCO is in excellent hands. I have every confidence in Scott Hill and the DISCO team as they manage this transition and carry on DISCO’s proud tradition of combining world-class engineering with a deep love and respect for the law to build product experiences that lawyers love.”
“It is a privilege to lead DISCO as CEO,” said Mr. Hill. “I have seen DISCO’s dedication to innovation and its commitment to using technology to empower lawyers and legal professionals to deliver better legal outcomes. I look forward to leading DISCO as our talented team helps lawyers around the world realize the power and potential of AI.”
