Lexicon and DRI Announce Partnership
The legal tech company and the international organization of attorneys will come together to focus on the business of law.
ST. LOUIS (March 4, 2021) – Lexicon, a comprehensive legal technology and services provider, announced its partnership with DRI, a leading organization of defense attorneys and in-house counsel, to launch a thought leadership outreach program to DRI members with the goal of helping firms better manage the business side of law.
Lexicon's extensive practice management experience combined with DRI's commitment to enhance its members' skills, effectiveness, and professionalism will provide valuable insights on how best to manage and grow law firms today and in the future.
At the end of the day, law firms are spending too much time on administrative tasks on top of also having to run a business, and not enough time practicing law.
"A law firm's core business is to provide legal services, and the firm should examine any other functions outside of practicing law to determine if it's in the firm's best interest to do it in-house," said Scott Brennan, Lexicon CEO. "Law firms are not experts at everything, and many aspects of running a business can and should be left to outside experts."
Both Lexicon and its new partner DRI provide attorneys just that – outside experts who are equipped to offer attorneys and their firms valuable business insights.
"The practice of law is evolving quickly," said Dean Martinez, Chief Executive Officer at DRI. "We are a unique catalyst for the skillful navigation of the business of law, providing attorneys and businesses with the resources and connections to help deliver value and create lasting impact. This partnership with Lexicon enhances this commitment to our members."
The first installment in the business of law series will be available this spring via DRI's LegalPoint – a members-only service with exclusive access to a vast online library of DRI articles, books, and materials – and will also be available through Lexicon’s Knowledge Base on their website (lexiconservices.com).
