Legal Innovation as a Service

Legal Innovation as a Service LogoLegal Innovation as a Service(TM) (“LIaaS”) is a fresh approach to provide innovation leaders in legal organizations with Just-in-time, Just-enough(TM) guidance at key inflection points in the innovation process. LIaaS consists of pre-scoped, limited, flat fee service offerings to help you get desired feedback or help, move your effort forward, and let you get back to doing what you do best. You select the option you need from the catalog, we work together on that project, and you get quickly back on the road to success and achieving your vision.

  • Jumpstart idea and innovation processes
  • Avoid missteps that will cost time and money
  • Accelerate and make smarter project selections
  • Reality-test projects and get a market-wise second set of eyes on your efforts
  • Get objective evaluation of investment decisions and needed course corrections

While LIaaS makes great sense for large law firms, law departments, and other legal organizations with chief innovation officers or developed innovation teams already in place, it has an even greater value in the mid-sized market where innovation efforts are just beginning, do not have a formal structure, or are in the process or change or re-evaluation. LIaaS can be a great tool for an organization to provide new innovation leadership or to help the management team assess innovation programs.

LIaaS brings together my industry expertise, experience (law department, law firm, and law professor), and my highly-regarded global network and connections in legal technology, innovation, and the business of the practice of law. In fact, many people have told me that getting access to my network, which I can tap for insights, perspectives, market knowledge and awareness, and the like, is what initially attracted them to LIaaS. I am also well-known for my focus on the practical, business value, and return on investment from innovation efforts. Although innovation is not necessarily dependent on technology, you will not find many people more knowledgeable about legal technology than I am.

The most common mistake organizations make is building a product or service that its customers and the market do not want. Many dollars and jobs have been lost. In many cases, some guidance at the right time, from the right perspective, and with knowledge of what is happening in the market would have made all the difference. The LIaaS Just-in-time, Just-enough approach provides forward-looking legal organizations with that guidance for their innovation efforts.
