Change is hard.
We’ve got you.
The legal market is changing. And this time, faster than ever. Thomson Reuters and Adam Smith, Esq. project that legal service provider or “law company” revenue will mushroom from $2B in 2015 to $55B by 2025. We know that traditional law firms will be the greatest casualty of this shift. That’s because what in-house departments need today includes things that law firms alone cannot effectively offer — technology, legal operations, data analytics, project management, process design, engineering, staffing, consulting and readily available global personnel at a reasonable cost. Law departments and traditional law firms need law companies, and so do we.
As legal needs are becoming more global and more complex, the lines between law departments and external resources are blurring. Rather than automatically turning to outside counsel or in-house personnel, law departments must look to whatever resource provides the most efficient, best-valued solution. In so many instances, even if they were inclined to, traditional law firms don’t have the ability to provide full-service solutions at reasonable prices — unless they join forces with Elevate and ElevateNext. (Note to “englightened” law firms. We play well in the sandbox and are happy to partner up).

It is a new model law firm that has partnered with the best-suited global law company so together we can handle all law department needs, including the practice of law and together we can work with traditional law firms who need help competing in today’s world.
