Lucidea : Making Information Accessible, Affordable – and Relevant
Critical law firm information assets are often physically captured but logically lost – either in departmental silos, document or records management systems, or on shared drives, for example– and the simple ability to search these isn’t the answer, because a search engine doesn’t interpret quality or relevance. Lucidea’s legal portal and knowledge management software solutions are designed from the ground up to:
- Break down information silos
- Unlock knowledge vaults
- Integrate with existing systems such as SharePoint
- Map tightly to attorney workflow
- Enable easy retrieval of work product
- Manage costs
- Deliver seamless secure access to both internal and third party content
Through its LawPort and Sydney solutions, Lucidea is the premier legal portal and knowledge management software company, helping law firm clients navigate the ever expanding universe of information, turning it into actionable knowledge. They achieve this by providing tools that accelerate access to knowledge resources, while simplifying their management. Lucidea is the trusted provider of KM solutions to 50% of the world’s top 100 law firms. In addition to powerful and sophisticated legal portal and library/knowledge management applications, Lucidea offers LookUp Precision, their robust electronic resource management and analytics software. The expert team at Lucidea is led by Ron Aspe, Founder and CEO.
LucideaCore KM technology is the culmination of an intensive multi-year research and development effort stemming from Lucidea’s vision of strategically combined knowledge and information management functionality, features and benefits. LucideaCore manages data points, interrelationships, storage, discovery, delivery, presentation and security of information in a way that provides for comprehensive knowledge management.
Their illustrious clientele include Weil, Gotshal and Manges, LLP, Winston & Strawn, LLP, Perkins Coie, LLP, and Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP.
Lucidea brings significant benefits to its clients. One such example, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, is a full service law firm providing progressive business, litigation and government services to clients ranging from Fortune 500 businesses and Global 1000 companies to small, regionally based organizations across a variety of industries and sectors.
Greenebaum, Doll & McDonald purchased LawPort in May 2005 to fulfill the firm’s needs for a robust, flexible, full-service KM platform with traditional intranet functionality; matter-centricity; knowledge management; proposal management and attorney biographies, and internet integration for third party content and web presence. LawPort was fully, rapidly and successfully deployed with the assistance of GDM’s professional, capable staff.
In January 2012, as part of the firm’s growth and expansion strategy, Louisville-based Greenebaum, Doll & McDonald PLLC and another LawPort client, Indianapolis-based Bingham, McHale LLP, merged to form the regional law firm of Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP.
The merging firms relied heavily upon LawPort to help streamline internal/external communications; collaboration; management of multiple distributed information systems, and seamless client service during the merger – until the separate core software applications and networks of both firms were consolidated into one. LawPort has continued to grow within BGD and is today a platform which continues to meet the firm’s commitment to providing outstanding legal services and solutions for their clients.
Moving forward Lucidea will remain focused on its goal of delivering a fully integrated suite of purpose-built products to the legal sector that make knowledge resources more accessible yet easier to manage – offering complete business benefit from the desktop to the back office with systems that help lawyers and legal information professionals acquire, organize and securely share critical information assets, both internal and external.
