Gartner, the industry’s leading research and advisory company, delivers research in technology to global technology business leaders to help them make informed decisions on key initiatives. According to the report, "ELM solution capabilities include (but are often focused on one or a number of): Matter Tracking, Legal document management, E-billing, Legal spent management and analytics, Workflow and collaboration, Legal contract management, Intellectual property (IP), patent management/docketing, Legal entity management, and e-discovery.”

"We are very proud that Legal Suite has been included again in Gartner's 2017 Market Guide for Enterprise Legal Management Solutions, this year as one of the eight Representative Vendors for ELM Platforms” states Patrick Deleau, Chairman and CEO of Legal Suite. “We believe this acknowledgment from Gartner shows the commitment of Legal Suite to contribute to the competitiveness and performance of legal departments since its creation in 2000. To us, it’s great to be acknowledged for what we provide to the industry worldwide."
Below are some key findings from Gartner Inc.’s 2017 Market Guide for Enterprise Legal Management solutions:
- Digital business is adding compliance and regulatory complexities.
- Legal analytics is an exciting category of technology that attracts proof of concept (POC) projects and the attention of investors. It includes applications of data analytics on legal spend data, and machine learning and natural-language processing (NLP) on legal content.
- The size of legal budgets and teams continue to increase due to elevated responsibilities. More legal work is being shifted from law firms to in-house counsel. According to the 2016 Chief Legal Officer Survey by Altman Weil, from 2015 to 2016, 41% of legal departments decreased their outside counsel spend.
- Large legal departments prefer consolidated ELM platforms that can support all legal aspects of a legal matter.
