HotDocs will officially launch a revolutionary new platform for lawyers and legal publishers at LegalTech New York.
Lindon, Utah and Edinburgh, UK – HotDocs, the leading document assembly technology provider for the legal industry, will officially launch an innovative new e-commerce platform, HotDocs Market, at LegalTech New York on February 3rd.
HotDocs Market provides attorneys with libraries of professionally crafted, customisable legal documents and forms from multiple legal publishers and Bar Associations, all created and delivered using HotDocs software.
The HotDocs Market platform enables legal publishers of all sizes to make their content highly accessible to their existing subscribers, as well as providing increased visibility to prospective customers in an online store environment. This virtual marketplace presents a new revenue stream and delivery channel for publishers, while reducing the costs and complexities of traditional distribution techniques. For end users of the site, it means easy access to relevant legal content that will reduce the time spent preparing forms and documentation and allow more time with clients.
Dave Lampert, President of HotDocs’ North American division, said: “HotDocs Market offers the ability for publishers to distribute HotDocs-enabled content in a cloud-based, e-commerce environment and allows legal practitioners to subscribe to a wide range of professionally produced documents and forms across numerous practice areas and jurisdictions. HotDocs Market is available at any time, on any device, enabling attorneys to work on legal documents from anywhere, always using the most current versions of the publisher’s content.”
Launching initially in the USA, the first HotDocs Market publishers will include LexisNexis, other professional legal publishers and a range of State Bar associations providing legal forms and documents to their members. Over time, HotDocs Market will scale to encompass multiple industries and geographies, with a publisher base ranging from large international publishers to speciality, regional and micro-publishers.
Russell Shepherd, Group CEO of HotDocs, concluded: “For the past twenty years, HotDocs has provided tools for a wide range of publishers of automated legal content. Today we are launching a complete e-commerce solution for publishing HotDocs content, which will help to further expand an already substantial market in the USA for subscriptions to HotDocs-enabled content. We believe that HotDocs Market will encourage new, innovative publishers to join our existing publisher network and produce further new and essential products for America’s legal community. HotDocs continues to develop further innovative solutions to add to our expanding, market-leading product portfolio and we hope that HotDocs Market will help many new law firms and lawyers to enjoy the benefits of expertly created content from our publishing partners, without the expense and time of creating templates themselves.”
