LegalVIEW Data Contributor Program

The LegalVIEW Data Contributor Program is designed for corporate legal and insurance claims departments, as well as law firms, that wish to contribute anonymous billing and matter data to LegalVIEW. The data in LegalVIEW data is sourced from corporations’ legal spend and matter management systems, law firms’ e-billing and time management solutions, as well as third-party sources.  Companies do not have to be users of ELM Solutions software in order to participate. There is no cost to contribute data and, in return, data contributors receive special access to and discounts on LegalVIEW analytics products and services, including a complimentary copy of the 2014 Real Rate Report.

To date, LegalVIEW Data Contributor Program participants have anonymously contributed over $66 billion dollars of invoice data.  All of the data is, and remains anonymous.  Prior to loading data, all timekeeper, matter, law firm, and company names are scrubbed to ensure anonymity. This process has been reviewed and certified by a third-party industry expert to validate that no sensitive information can be tied back to its original source.
