As more consumers embrace remote legal services, new legal marketplaces are proliferating in a bid to to connect attorneys with potential clients. But sticking out in a crowded market requires understanding that lawyers’ needs go beyond finding clients. To that end, some lawyer marketplaces are rolling out free tech tools and services to entice attorneys to join their platform.
Earlier this month, Xira Connect Inc. announced it expanded its platform from finding, booking and meeting attorneys in virtual meeting rooms to also providing Gavel, a free practice management tool for participating attorneys.
Gavel was developed to remove barriers that prevent new solo practitioners or formerly inactive attorneys returning to practicing law from joining the marketplace, said Xira CEO and founder Reza Ghaffari.
