Legaltech Hub which released in 2020 has been redesigned and is offering new content. The new interface is more user friendly and intuitive.  There is  a new “highly user-focused taxonomy,.” The directory has expanded from covering technology to including service offerings for  the people who support technology implementation and adoption. The events directory has been refreshed for 2022.

New categories on the site include consultants, ALSPs, and people – including both recruiting agents and recruiting tools. Legal research is now a much deeper category.  According to LTH co-founder, Nikki Shaver the powerful keyword search remains, allowing users to

 search across the whole directory of over 2,000 solutions with any keyword to find what they’re looking for, and to narrow search results by searching within a set of results  with contextual filters.

Shaver explained today’s launch in the context on a longer term strategy. “The launch of our re-designed site is the first step in our journey towards a full insights and analysis platform for legal technology, legal operations, and the business of law. Our expansion into service categories such as consultants and ALSPs represents our commitment to not just the technology but also the people and processes supporting the implementation and adoption of technology in commercial legal organizations. We have also significantly increased the scope of our legal research category, making Legaltech Hub a platform of relevance to the world of legal research librarians. Our newsletters will be going live in April, and we aim to launch expert-led premium content by June.”
The Hot Marketplace Market I introduced in a post  in late 2020 and it has come a long way since it’s launch. There has been a general explosion in the tech marketplace market. In addition to   Reynen Court, Thomson Reuters  Marketplace  and most recently Bob Ambrogi lauched his LawNext tech guide to products and services. .  The offerings and complexity of the legal tech market continue to explode while the market for legal tech specialists is contacting. Law firms have fewer tech staff available to explore, assess and test the market offerings. The Legaltech Hub directory allows  law firm leaders across the business professional spectrum to explore the market and focus in on the products with the closest match to their needs.
The  Legaltech Hub Brain Trust
Legaltech Hub was founded by Nikki Shaver and her husband Chris Ford October 2020 to ” democratize legal technology’ by helping legal professionals to find products and solutions across the globe.” Shaver a legal tech thought leader left her position as managing director of Innovation and knowledge at Paul Hastings earlier this year to work full time on the platform.
I asked Shaver to explain the new  leadership structure of Legaltech Hub.  “I have taken on role of CEO. Chris has stayed on as an advisor, but he has a day job.  Jeroen Plink  the former CEO of Clifford Chance Applied Solutions is a co-founder and COO.  The other founding shareholder is Sam Whitman, who used to work at Mayer Brown but is now the head of legal operations at Shopify – which means we have the law firm innovation perspective, the legal ops perspective, the vendor / investor perspective and the marketing perspective on the legal tech market.”
The directory remains a free resource for the legal community at large.
