Every law firm believes it is unique — and they’re right.
That’s exactly why expertise is the lifeblood of every successful law firm.

In a market that is increasingly competitive, firms that want to win, win on expertise—and that’s what we help you do.


Every professional services firm needs to know not only the expertise of its people, but the experience that those people actually have. The ability to surface that information is critically important to the operation of our business.

What is Expertise Management?

Expertise management matters.

It means—no matter what team you’re on at your firm – you know exactly where to go to get the most accurate, up-to-date experience and expertise.

With expertise & knowledge management, information is centralized in exactly one place and, by design, means that marketing, BD and KM know that the information they need resides in that exact, single “place”.

How We Help You Win

Most firms are challenged to access their most valuable asset:  their expertise.

Instead, marketing and BD are relying on Excel spreadsheets and Word documents to track, compile, use and update information about expertise for winning new business and client development.

This manual reliance on static binary spreadsheets and documents to maintain, track and utilize the firm’s expertise is time-consuming, is likely not complete or accurate – and is costing the firm.


By centralizing experience data, firms gain these benefits:

  1. Win more business in less time
  2. Respond to more RFPs in less time with better data
  3. Drive strategic account planning
  4. Increase attorney productivity by gaining quick visibility to availability
  5. Streamline business development workflow
  6. Surface diversity statistics of teams effortlessly
  7. Substantially reduce time needed for Chambers and Legal 500 submissions


Capable of searching and synthesizing huge volumes of data from multiple sources, an expertise & knowledge management platform produces more insightful results more quickly and cost effectively than humans.

Data driven law firms will be empowered to support both tactical goals and big-picture growth objectives.  Drive BD, marketing and KM efforts by improving the accessibility of the firm’s expertise.
