The Ultimate Guide on How to Build Legal Products


The Ultimate Guide on How to Build Legal Products

Table of Contents

Law firms are turning their services into legal products. This guide explains how to build an end-to-end legal product that drives efficiency for your firm and generates new forms of revenue, including defining your scope and audience and structuring new billing models.

Turning legal services into legal products can be done by creating document automation workflows and legal apps, and by structuring new revenue models.  To build legal products, you'll want to think strategically about the process of scoping, building, and launching your legal products.  We created this series on "productizing legal services" to educate you on what we and our clients have found to be most successful.  We cover everything from defining your initial audience, to legal startup software to help you build, to marketing and monetizing your legal applications.
