About Us

Marketplace + Platform + Workflow Engine

The Enterprise Gateway Marketplace for all of Legal.
Law's innovation super highway. 

We learned early on that legal professionals have no good way to understand all the options and services available to them, at the point of pain, within their workflow–and are unable to adopt new technology on a per transaction basis. So we set out to solve this problem with a focus on delivering greater workflow compatibility and integration, reducing costs associated with subscribing to numerous redundant platforms, and increasing access to quality alternatives.

Theorem is the legal tech platform that surfaces tools within user workflows to help firms adopt new technology. We also help vendors be pre-vetted for firms. Our platform combines an integrated marketplace for legal technology with a powerful workflow engine–accessible from one centralized portal–making it easier to deliver legal services at scale.

Firms, Legal Departments: Get everything you need to develop your own internal innovation hub. Share internal use cases and build your knowledge center to more quickly identify, assess, adopt, manage and deliver your technology to the hands of users and prospective clients, precisely when they need it. Leverage our network of shared vendor intelligence for instant value.

We're also helping firms aggregate plug-and-play solutions into full stack digital solutions, manage core services, build and coordinate workflows, while aiming to provide service bundles by practice area, alongside unparalleled legal industry intelligence.

We empower in-house legal departments with actionable insights into their firm's commitment to technology, innovation and diversity–enabling teams to collaborate with outside counsel in selecting prospective solutions that create more transparency and help standardize billing practices.

FAQ

Firms

Will Theorem and participating apps work with my existing stack?


Yes! Easily connect to virtually any third party technology or data source to drive connected and intelligent processes with a unique Universal Connector + machine learning.

Our platform enables legal operations teams to enhance service delivery without introducing new systems, forms, or processes–while granting access to a whole new world of alternatives, connections and collaboration.

Our goal is to increase utilization of your current stack, while detecting redundancy and enabling new solution compatibility with your core suite–ensuring flexibility for your organization. No more one-off integration requests and implementation delays.

Get the full picture of how vendors stack up from pricing, features and functionality, to security, integrations and all the real-metrics you care about (# peer firms using, implementation guidelines, suggested practice group...) Build your stack and inquire so we can show you how to get started in building your hub for connecting, sharing & automating solutions. Submit Request By Adding your techstack, you can also engage in the Theorem Firm Ecosystem ("LegalTech StackShare"), for insights on peer-adoption and in-house client compatibility. You can also sell your firm's technology powered legal services solutions here.




Why share my organization's technology? How do you use our techstack information?


Theorem is a network of shared vendor intelligence. All peer firms with a premium subscription get access to firm technology stack information, which is simply peer driven vendor intelligence. Firm intelligence allows you to see how your firm's technology "stacks up" to your peers, assists with risk management and third-party risk assessment, and helps premium users share intelligence to enhance their purchase decisions, such as peer-firm use, pricing, implementation, etc.

In addition, in-house clients are beginning to request technology competence and compatibility at an increasing rate. Assembling your technology stack gives in-house users insights into your firm's commitment to technology and providing both efficient and effective legal services. Uploading your stack is essential for your firm's consideration and engagment with certain tech-driven RFP. Don't believe us? Check out the 2020 Wolters Kluwer Future Ready Lawyer Survey:
"The study found that more corporate legal departments are expecting the law firms they hire to take advantage of technology. By 2022, 81% of corporate legal departments will require prospective law firms to describe their technology use to be more productive and efficient — almost double the rate of the 41% of corporate legal departments asking this today."

We've assembled an inhouse steering commitee for this purpose!





Do you offer Single Sign-On?


Yes! Premium users can enhance and track utilization + reduce workflow inefficiencies by adding our universal Single Sign-on to their Theorem Firm App Portal and shared workflow authentication. Setup required.

See Pricing. Available in-app upgrades.





Vendors

Access to a number of enhanced features is contigent on becoming a marketplace seller under those plans, terms, and conditions.

Our goal is to make our transaction fees the lowest possible to reduce friction and not unduly harm smaller providers.

Ecosystem

WHAT WE'RE ABOUT.


Our team is committed to leveling the playing field and providing actionable, accurate, and comprehensive intelligence that really does justice to the vibrance & sophistication of the legaltech ecosystem. Vendor intelligence is not something we need to compete over, but rather, if done correctly, could drive market standardization and a more useful, connected legal tech landscape. This is not simply about democratizing legaltech. Distribution is the real problem–the future is already here, it's just not evenly distributed. In fact, our aim is to help the legal industry and legal professionals maintain their status as the trusted advisors to the most innovative organizations facing some of the most complex issues of the modern age.

Theorem is about great products, GREAT DISTRIBUTION, and access to loads of alternatives, while granting your team the tools needed to assess quality, speed up your digital transformation, and most importantly, better serve your clients. Quality is in the details. Never settle.




Will you have awards?


No* We have no plans to give out awards. We've found Most legal industry awards are either pay-to-win, or simply, too closed-door and exclusive (the same people recycling awards) to mean anything. We don't need this association.




Do you list consultants?


Consultants will have their own section of our ecosystem. For the most part, Theorem's marketplace is for commercially available legal technology applications and products. As a general statement, we are looking for providers with subscription services. We work with consulting shops and managed services providers, which you can reach out and inquire more about partnering with us HERE

All solutions and offers are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.




What about ALSPs?


To the extent the ALSP has a technology solution, they can list their offering. All service offerings and solutions providers are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and require our administration's approval. As a general statement, we are looking for providers with subscription services...




Transaction Fees?


Upgraded account vendors can simply link to marketing sites and users may negotiate directly with providers. However, access to a number of enhanced features is contigent on becoming a marketplace seller under those plans, terms, and conditions. Our goal is to make our transaction fees the lowest possible to reduce friction and not unduly harm smaller providers.




Why is there so many "Non-Legaltech" solutions?


Displaying the core suite of business applications used outside of legal–particularly those whose functionality far surpases existing "legaltech" for particular non-legal specific use cases, and whose business may be growing in prominence within the legal industry–is key to understanding client compatibility and essential towards making legaltech a more connected, integral part of a complete legal services solution stack.
