SAN FRANCISCO, October 12, 2000 – Continuing its pledge to be the Web’s most comprehensive destination for the legal community, law.com has added real-time document collaboration services to its growing host of technology tools through the acquisition of DocumentForum.com Inc. This follows closely on the heels of the acquisitions of practice management software leader PMT Inc. and realLegal.com, leader in e-transcript services for the legal community. Providing a web-based collaborative solution for document development aimed at the legal community, DocumentForum’s service allows users to meet online and create, edit or revise documents in real-time. Through public and private messaging, with or without the use of teleconferencing, the ‘forum’ can convene online to prepare and finalize documents where they can be tracked and stored, saving reams of paper in the process. “At law.com, we have seen the use of the Internet explode among attorneys as they have found that web-based technologies can save travel, costs and time in their normally paper-intensive environment,” said Bill Feid, CEO of law.com. “Adding real-time document collaboration services to our technology offerings, continues our strategy to consolidate under one roof, a suite of tools that will bring maximum efficiency to a law practice.” DocumentForum will continue to provide real-time services to its seven major customers that represent more than 2,000 attorneys. Plans for product enhancements and integration with law.com’s other new offerings will also proceed at an aggressive pace. DocumentForum’s services will be immediately offered through law.com’s popular Web site as well as through its sales representatives in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. About law.com Law.com, a privately hold company, is the Web’s most comprehensive legal destination, providing legal professionals and law students with the tools and intelligence required to compete and succeed in today’s wired world.
