About Amiqus

1 million legal cases go unresolved in the UK each year. 1 in 3 individuals and 4 out of 5 small businesses can’t find or afford legal expertise when they need it. We think access to civil justice is a fundamental right.

Amiqus is building tools to provide access to legal information, so people can make informed legal choices. We partner with educational and legal organisations across the UK, combining their domain expertise with our product building knowledge.

Amiqus ID is our first product, allowing legal professionals to perform anti-money laundering, identity, and compliance checks online. These checks are required each time a legal advisor works with a client, so it lays the foundation for our future products. Lawyers, accountants, estate agents, and financial service providers currently do these checks in person, at huge inconvenience to clients, so Amiqus ID saves them a massive amount of time and money.
