About us

Almost everyone has filed a claim before; few know how much work goes into resolving one.

With our background in law, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), and technology, we saw a better way: if claimant and defendant could adopt a collaborative attitude, and agree to be governed by a shared protocol on a shared platform, the tedium in the process could be taken away.

So Nuvalaw was born, a business that drives value for everyone involved by embedding innovative thinking in digital tools that help make the work of resolving claims more simple, more efficient, and more fun.
