Start-up Corner: “NewLaw” from NewGalexy

Startups-icon

“NewLaw” providers often make up in marketing what they lack in substance but with NewGalexy, which has moved from straight LPO provider to this autumn launching two new cloud solutions, the more interesting chatter is behind the scenes. Founded by heavyweight former McGrigors senior partner and KLegal chief executive Robert Glennie, NewGalexy was seriously considered by BT as a replacement for its former LPO provider UnitedLex, a contract finally won at the start of this year by Axiom. NewGalexy still works closely with the telecoms giant on public sector work and if anything that relationship is growing.

movies-icon

Welcome to the second episode in our new video series Talking Tech with Charles Christian. The theme for this series is Time Recording/Time Capture Technology for Law Firms and this week we are talking to Phil Wedgwood, the CEO of Rekoop. In subsequent episodes we’ll also be hearing from Bellefield, LexisNexis and Intapp. This video runs for just under 14 minutes however the platform we are using has a DvD-like menu system so you can easily locate and jump between individual ‘chapters’ rather than have to fast-forward/rewind to find the sections you want to view again.

Social Media Comment: Why Facebook for Work makes LinkedIn LuckedOut

social-media

I can’t get enough of Social Media. I’ll admit it. There aren’t enough free slots in my day to tap into the ether of other people’s business and snoop their news, work gripes and media opinions and whilst all the platforms offer “engagement” of varying intensities and worth, they respectively suit some demographics as well being totally inappropriate for others.

COMMENT: Collaboration – Where Do We Go From Where We’ve Been?

comment

In 1998 I discovered a skunk works project in the organisation I was working for. It was a project to take instant messaging to the next level and provide a platform for collaboration in a global organisation of nearly 40,000 people. I, although not alone, allowed it to continue and it was hugely successful and was eventually spun out as a start-up during the dotcom boom. Ultimately it was bought by a major software company. That was the first time I got used to using the word “collaboration” to describe the purpose of a software system. I’ve used many IM systems since and this was still the best I’ve ever come across.

Ediscovery: The Ghost of Tweetmas Past

e-discovery

Not the Ghost of Christmas Past but the Ghost of Tweetmas Past. Yes, here’s a new horror to give the social media and ediscovery worlds a few sleepless nights: Twitter has just announced that it is building an index that will make it possible to search for EVERY tweet ever published since Twitter first went live in 2006. That’s going to be several hundred billion tweets.
