Join an award-winning team
Amiqus was founded with a mission to make civil justice more accessible.

Our first product, Amiqus ID (released in 2016), was designed to improve the slow, inefficient processes that regulated professions currently undertake as part of client onboarding checks.

We wanted to ensure that firms of all sizes could use smart technology to relieve them of complex manual processes and, more importantly, keep sensitive client information secure.

This award winning product has given Amiqus the platform to continue our growth plans and our work has been recognised by leading regulators and firms in law, finance, accountancy, property and recruitment.

Amiqus are continuing on our quest of building tools which 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 to bring our plans to fruition.
