December 21, 2000 – United Kingdom – Law.com/UK today announced plans to refine its business strategy to focus more on enhanced web-based and desktop software application services. This latest effort is part of a strategic design to focus on aspects of the business that provide the greatest customer value, with the goal of better serving the Law.com/UK client base. The plan calls for the repurposing of the company’s London office, which has traditionally been the focal point for implementing solely content-based initiatives. The Company’s UK based presence will now turn its attention to enhancing its application service base. As Law.com continues to be committed to serving a broad UK audience, and currently enjoys several existing relationships with law firms headquartered in the United Kingdom, the company has rededicated itself to its European market. Law firms throughout the United Kingdom, Continental Europe, and the Americas will benefit directly from the retooled business focus abroad. The new direction will capitalize on law.com’s popularity as a leading provider of law-based application services including Practice Manager, a “virtual office manager” for attorneys, that organizes legal documents through a relational database, combines calendaring, collaboration, and groupware, case management, document management and assembly, time and billing, legal cost auditing, and other business-critical tools for legal professionals to successfully manage a practice. “Over the past year, we’ve learned a lot about what our clients in the UK want and about what they need to compete in today’s crowded legal arena. Since re-applying resources to build out our application-based model we have honed in on delivering our services more efficiently and cost-effectively,” said Bill Feid, CEO of law.com. “Our new approach places the greatest priority on the feature that our UK user base looks to us for most: software application tools that increase their ability to be effective and to deliver. As we go forward, we will continue to listen to our customers and look for ways to bring customers what they want, in the most compelling and useful way possible.” To date, more than one hundred of the world’s leading firms and corporations currently use Law.com’s applications to manage their practices and caseloads. Firms like Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue regularly use Law.com software applications including eTranscript, eBrief, and MA3000.
