Websites aren’t just for attracting clients.  An internal website, or “intranet” site, can also help law firms and corporate legal departments organize and share internal information.

An intranet site can help firms and legal departments:

  • avoid repeating  the same research or redrafting the same documents
  • stay up-to-date on relevant legal developments
  • train new team members more quickly and easily
  • respond more quickly to client requests

Many attorneys lack the time or inclination to design and write content for their own intranet sites. We provide cost-effective, timely solutions.

We understand law, how legal departments function within corporations, and how intranets work.  Not only can we collect and organize existing client content, we can provide new content on almost any legal topic.

Clients and Projects

Our automation and intranet clients have included Hewlett-PackardIntuit, Philips Semiconductors (now NXP), Synopsys, and Quantum.

We have created:

  • an interactive OEM agreement
  • an on-line antitrust compliance program
  • content on numerous topics, such as intellectual property
  • a complete turn-key legal department site including hundreds of pages of information and resources

For Innodata, we had the task of training 220 lawyers, in three countries, to perform analytical and writing work for a major US legal publisher.  To accomplish this, we created a testing and training program based on the open-source moodle learning platform.

Using the moodle platform , we created a screening test for legal knowledge and writing ability that was used across all locations.  The site was then used to deliver training on each new workflow.

The moodle site also served as a repository of manuals and other resources, updated in Wiki fashion by the attorneys themselves and in response to client feedback.

Basic  Corporate Site

A basic corporate legal intranet site could provide information to company employees on things like:

  • Confidential Information
  • Antitrust Basics
  • Employment Law
  • Intellectual Property Protection
  • Contract Law
  • Dispute Resolution
  • How to prepare for a deposition

Intranet Blogs

Just as law firms publish blogs to educate and engage their clients, a law firm or legal department can have an internal blog.  This can be used to keep both lawyers and non-lawyer up-to-date on relevant legal developments.

While there are thousands of existing blogs and newsletters on a wide array of legal topics, a custom blog can curate this overwhelming flow of data and pick topics targeted to the specific needs and interests of the firm or company.
