  1. Experience Discovery

    Eliminate "pardon the interruption" emails with a catalog of collective skills and experience of everyone within your organization.

  2. Proposal Generation

    Respond to RFPs faster by generating consistent, on-brand proposals.

  3. Cross-selling

    Efficiently grow the business by making siloed practice information available firm-wide.

  4. Staffing

    Eliminate email as the mechanism for ad-hoc staffing of matters with validated attorney experience profiles.

Ikaun gives the business development team the power to work autonomously in creating accurate proposals, while still maintaining high-quality pitches and a higher win rate. Client expectations continue to increase, putting more pressure on business development to respond to RFPs faster.

3 Challenges Facing New Business Development in 2020

Just like every other industry today, the legal services industry is experiencing massive disruption lead not only by technology but also by client expectations. These expectations are forcing firms to become more responsive and leverage their experience and expertise in new and creative ways. In working with our clients and prospects, we’ve identified three challenges that are impacting business development and ultimately firm growth.

  1. Changing client expectations are demanding more time from attorneys.
  2. Mergers & combinations are making it difficult for firms to understand their collective experience.
  3. Clients are increasingly using new vehicles for hiring counseling, including reverse auctions, AFAs, and RFPs.
