Organizations and publications recognize Priori for improving efficiency in outside counsel decision-making

In the face of an economic downturn, legal marketplaces can offset the budgetary and operational burdens being placed on legal departments. We’ve seen companies of all sizes use our Marketplace and new outside counsel decision-enabling platform, Scout, to help get work done more efficiently and save on legal costs. Because of this, the platforms are being recognized across the industry for the impact they’re making with legal departments. It’s clear that more companies are turning to technologies like Marketplace and Scout to solve their problems. Here are a few recent ways our products have been featured: 

  • Legal Dive highlights how Scout finds the “right people, right time, right place, right price.” The publication spoke with Priori’s CEO and Co-Founder Basha Rubin, as well as Scout beta partners An Trotter, Senior Director of Operations, and Jessica Williams, Senior Operations Manager, both of Hearst, about how Scout enables Hearst to quickly and effectively find trusted outside counsel for projects. Trotter and Williams explained that not only does Scout allow them to find the right attorney faster, but it can also save money. They estimate it will save Hearst 325 hours annually. 

  • Scout is “Overall LegalTech Solution of the Year.” The winners of the 2022 LegalTech Breakthrough awards were recently announced and we were honored to receive this recognition for Scout. The awards conduct a comprehensive analysis of the industry to determine which companies standout for their contribution to the legal tech space and we are proud to be recognized by the program for the groundbreaking work we’re doing with Scout. 

  • Buying Legal Council (BLC) awards Priori and Heart for our collaboration. In the 2022 Legal Procurement Awards presented by BLC, the partnership between Priori and Hearst on Scout was recognized with the “Collaboration Award.” Priori worked with Hearst to workshop the product and create a new category of legal software to help inform decision-making for outside counsel hiring. An Trotter, Senior Director of Operations, Office of the General Counsel at Hearst, calls Scout “game changer for the legal industry.” 

  • Law.com points to legal tech’s potential role in diversity and inclusion. In a recent article, Law.com touched on the Mansfield Rule—a certification created by legal idea incubator the Diversity Lab which encourages law firms and legal departments to consider diverse candidates—and how data collection is a necessary component of achieving better diversity in the industry. One solution for making the data collection process easier is to turn to legal tech vendors such as Priori.
