Our Story

The Beginning of Skribe

Skribe, a revolutionary deposition technology, was born out of the visionary drive of Co-Founders Karl Seelbach and Tom Irby to transform the legal industry. Recognizing the increasing advancements in AI capabilities and the ongoing struggle to balance time and cost when hiring deposition services, the concept of Skribe took shape under their leadership.

Driven by their shared desire to simplify and enhance the deposition process, the two of them envisioned Skribe as a technology powered tool that would revolutionize the way legal professionals approached their work. By leveraging the power of Artificial Intelligence, Skribe aimed to offer a seamless and efficient alternative to traditional court reporting methods.

With Skribe, attorneys and paralegals can now rely on a reliable and intelligent assistant that could transcribe depositions accurately and swiftly. With Karl’s experience as an attorney and Tom’s business background, the two built a platform that aims to reshape the legal industry.
