ShiftCentral, The Market Intelligence Agency, is launching a new market intelligence service. Legal Innovation Central is a new service that helps law firms and corporate counsel better adapt to new market forces that are altering the legal landscape.
“New technologies, new ways of managing law firms and many other innovations to the practice of law are entering the market, and when you are focused on your work, you might not be aware, nor have the time to chase information,” says Mario Theriault, CEO at ShiftCentral. “We are launching Legal Innovation Central with a 15-day trial, so law firms and legal departments can stay informed of the new practices, business models, technologies, research tools and e-Discovery developments. More, specifically, it will help them better adapt to their changing environment.”
Legal Innovation Central is comprised of three key elements: daily briefings, an online platform and industry dossiers. The service reports on several major disruptive areas, including the Big Four Disruptors, Litigation Funding, Machine Learning, Document Analysis, e-Discovery, Alternate Providers, Legal Research and Shared Service Centers – offering insights into trends, emerging providers, regulatory developments and law firm responses. It also provides full access to a searchable online platform, which allows users to drill down to the developments they need to know most.
“Within Legal Innovation Central, we also have industry dossiers that are updated regularly, offering legal management the tools and information needed to make better decisions, be proactive and to present on various important subjects,” explains Jeroen Plink, executive advisor at ShiftCentral. Plink is the former CEO of Practical Law U.S. and the architect behind Legal Innovation Central.
ShiftCentral, founded in 2000, has office locations in New York and Canada. Unlike news aggregator platforms, it bases its intelligence on highly skilled human analysts, who can provide judgement and analysis where aggregator platforms often can’t. This means better quality content that is accurate, practical and actionable. The agency supports clients worldwide, across a range of industries, including legal, health, life sciences, financial and tech. For nearly two decades, ShiftCentral has been supporting law firms by informing them of industry developments, client developments and regulatory changes, among other areas. Law firms turn to ShiftCentral to help support their internal strategy needs, to drive business development opportunities and to produce relevant and timely content marketing.
