HotDocs has today announced that Jonathan Hoy has become VP of HotDocs Market – the document assembly provider’s innovative online platform for access to US legal content.
HotDocs Market, launched a year ago, offers almost 7,000 templates from a range of expert legal publishers in the United States and currently has more than 2,000 law firm subscribers. With ambitious growth plans for 2016 and more publishers and subscribers set to join the service, Jonathan Hoy has been appointed to a senior leadership position to drive success throughout 2016 and beyond.
Jonathan Hoy had been operating as HotDocs’ Director – Publishing Partnerships since August 2014 and has been instrumental in the success of HotDocs Market to date. Joining HotDocs after a long career in legal publishing with LexisNexis and the American Bar Association, Hoy will now take overall responsibility for working with the growing HotDocs Market team to implement the growth strategy and increase market share.
Hoy commented: “It’s a really exciting time to be taking the reins for HotDocs Market, as we expand the team, enhance the marketing and technology behind the service and bring on new publishers and subscribers. By adding new publishers to HotDocs Market and increasing the content from our existing partners, we will be able to offer a wider range of legal forms products to our subscribers, in more locations and across more practice areas.”
HotDocs Market uses HotDocs’ industry-leading document assembly technology to turn publishers’ content into intelligent HotDocs templates. Content subscribers simply complete a dynamic HotDocs interview to generate a customised document, or set of documents, offering attorneys more time to focus on other areas of the work, rather than drafting documents.
Gary Eunson, Commercial Director at HotDocs, concluded: “We have enjoyed a really successful first year for HotDocs Market and the timing is now perfect for Jonathan to take this senior leadership role as we move forward into what we estimate will be an even more successful second year. I look forward to working with Jonathan and his team to bring our growth plans for HotDocs Market to fruition.”
