There is no such thing as a stupid question. Actually, there is, but we have not included any of them here. 

Q: If we are a law firm aren't we competitors?

Only if you live in yesterday’s world.  We focus on the routine, the un-special, the low value stuff that most law firms would prefer not to handle. Elevate works with many of the top law firms in the world. We don’t see ElevateNext as competing with traditional law firms at all; we see ourselves as a complement to them. ElevateNext happily works with law firms who need routine things done faster, cheaper, less expensively, like handling all the research and routine motion drafting for firms or working with the Elevate eDiscovery team to provide an augmented document review product. Anyway, there is so much special work around, we are certain you are plenty busy.

Q: Do I get multiple bills or have to have different engagement letters if my issue will involve both ElevateNext and Elevate?

Nearly to a tee, every customer we have encountered prefers simple to complicated. We suspect you are no exception.  We try to do things in a seamless manner. If you prefer for ElevateNext to be the direct party you engage with, no problem. If you prefer it to be Elevate, no problem.  Are you catching on?  We’re here to delight you.

Q: What if we already use Elevate for work in our law department. Why would we need ElevateNext?

First. Bravo on using Elevate.  Second, if your in-house staff is handling routine matters  — like responding to subpoenas or handling pre-litigation matters, we can add value by freeing them up for more valuable work. If you have portfolios of matters (think breach of contract matters, product liability litigation, mandatory arbitrations, forming corporate entities, routine compliance) that are costing too much, not being handled efficiently by your outside firms, or have inconsistent outcomes, that’s also where ElevateNext is ideal.  Are you trying to use more diverse suppliers? Bingo! Truth be told, you might not need to use ElevateNext. But we suspect you do.

Q: Can't I just use one of my existing firms with Elevate instead of using ElevateNext?

You certainly can. In deciding whether that outcome makes sense, ask yourself whether your existing firm will work seamlessly with Elevate to maximize the return to the law department. Are they the most cost-effective solution? Are they innovative? Are they diverse? If you are answering yes to the questions that matter to you, you’re good to go.

Q: We have work outside of the U.S. Can you help?

Absolutely. We opened ElevateNext UK in the summer of 2020 and our solicitors of the Senior Courts of England & Wales provide legal advice in relation to English law matters. Elevate also has offices throughout Europe, in Asia and other parts of the world. Where there is a need, between this affiliation or work with a broad network of global lawyers, we can help.

Q: What if I use another law company or a bunch of different service providers I like. Can I use ElevateNext with them?

Of course you can.  As we said, we play well with others. We have chosen to align with Elevate because we believe they are the most effective law company whose mission and people are sympatico with us. But if you are satisfied with your current providers and need an enlightened law firm to work with them, we can do so.
