Elevating the significant above the noise
Legal IT Insider has become synonymous with identifying emerging trends and markets in business technology that relate to legal IT and then, crucially, its application in law office management. We separate the facts from the hype and provide future-looking insight and key metrics to help you plan, prioritise and respond to opportunities and so deal with challenges ahead of time. More intelligence equals more power.
We have always been ahead of the curve and pioneers in publishing platforms: we were the first legal IT newsletter in the market, the first to go digital, the earliest website, the first blog (and most successful) and first with a new generation of apps for the iPad era. We have a history of predicting future IT topics before they become mainstream and keep ahead of trending news with an eye on global connectivity and emerging technologies and markets.
What differentiates us is that we are independent, not driven by sponsors or partners, so our reputation is impeccable for unbiased, newsworthy news. Long term relationships and networks built on trust mean we are often the first media called with the latest breaking news and exclusives. We also have a solid reputation that if we are given information but it is not for release, or available until a certain date, it is safe with us.
