ELAW MAKES STRATEGIC INVESTMENT IN ZR PER DIEM SERVICES. BOTH COMPANIES EXPAND LEGAL SERVICES OFFERINGS

Partnership promises to make it easier for attorneys throughout New York and New Jersey to cover court appearances and depositions with high quality experienced attorneys

 GREAT NECK, NY, October 29, 2018 ZR Per Diem Services, LLC (ZRPD), New York and New Jersey’s leader in per diem attorney support, and eLaw® New York and New Jersey’s leader in case docketing, calendaring and tracking, today announced a first-of-its-kind strategic partnership that will amplify the impact of both companies’ innovative offerings.

To revolutionize the way attorneys manage and staff their cases, the two companies are integrating their groundbreaking platforms. Law firms who are clients of both companies will be able to easily and quickly secure per diem coverage in their eLaw accounts or from an eWatch alert without having to re-enter case information in their coverage request. Going forward, these firms and the per diem attorneys staffing their cases will also be able to view eLaw-provided case details from inside ZRPD’s innovative Revolution™ appearance management system.

“We started providing per diem services in 2016 through our eLaw portal,” said Dominick Esposito, President of eLaw. “We had arms-length partnerships with several per diem firms, which allowed us to assess various per diem providers. We discovered that the best attorneys, the best customer service and the most efficient process came from ZR Per Diem and their Revolution system. We are absolutely thrilled to invest in ZR Per Diem to create this new unparalleled offering and fuel ZRPD’s growth.”

eLaw has a strong history of partnering and investing in companies that provide complementary services for attorneys.  With its sister company PM Legal, it recently announced a strategic investment in dispute resolution firm SSAM. The new ZR Per Diem partnership continues the strategy of building the most complete suite of top litigation support offerings available to New York and New Jersey attorneys.

“Partnering with eLaw,” said Connie Rinaldi, Managing Director of ZRPD, an attorney with 15 years of experience, “helps us expand our concierge-based per diem services offering to more firms and across more venues, while maintaining our high standards for processing requests, assigning professional per diem staff attorneys and providing appearance results quickly. It also allows us to become an even better home for per diem attorneys looking for more efficient, predictable and profitable appearance schedules.”

ZRPD’s market leadership and its expansive network offers its clients and its per diem attorneys significant advantages. ZRPD provides broad coverage as well as the ability to cover most last-minute requests, since ZRPD has per diems available in the vast majority of courthouses daily.  Likewise, the best per diem attorneys want a full day’s schedule, which ZRPD can provide.

This scale would not be possible without ZRPD’s homegrown Revolution™ software that automates much of the process of ordering and fulfilling per diem appearance orders. “Maintaining our quality standards while growing rapidly required building capabilities that no other per diem service had” says Cesar Zuniga, the ZRPD Managing Director, a seasoned trial attorney, who led the development effort. “It’s imperative that we are not just the largest – but also the best place for per diem attorneys to secure work and the best place for law firms that need to consistently get the best attorneys without feeling lost in the system.”

Without  scale and a system like Revolution, smaller per diem firms cannot provide the same level of service to either their clients or the per diem attorneys who staff their appearances.

The integrated features with more combined capabilities will be available in the coming months.

PRESS RELEASE – eLAW and PM Legal Announce Growth Capital Investment in SSAM ADR

September 27, 2018 – New York, NY – Sister companies eLAW and PM Legal are proud to announce a growth capital investment in and strategic partnership with SSAM ADR, an award-winning boutique dispute resolution firm, headquartered in Westbury, NY.  The investment will fund SSAM’s expansion into Manhattan (655 Third Avenue at 42nd St; entire 27th floor) to service its growing client base.  The investment underscores eLAW’s and PM Legal’s ongoing commitment to fostering and providing attorneys with access to innovative solutions that meet their evolving needs.  In addition, and as part of the new alliance, PM Legal President and Visionary, Ross Mallor, will take on an active, advisory role as a Director for SSAM.

Widely known and well-respected as the source of critical knowledge and services for busy legal professionals, eLAW and PM Legal—the recognized leader in each of case tracking, per diem services, process service, investigations, and court services—and SSAM, finalized their partnership in early August 2018.  The joint venture will now offer mediation and arbitration solutions to all eLAW subscribers and PM Legal clients.

As the latest arrow in their quiver of innovative programs, SSAM ADR, in conjunction with eLAW and PM Legal, will roll out a new eADR Digital Case Submission Program.  This program will enable eLAW and PM Legal clients to access SSAM’s entire suite of creative, customized dispute resolution services.  To streamline the process, the eADR option will be made available on the eLAW, PM Legal and SSAM websites via a Digital Case Submission process that will allow clients to easily submit a case for mediation.  Various other joint programs are currently in development that will maximize the opportunities for eLaw and PM Legal attorneys to access SSAM ADR.  The strategic partnership creates a gateway to mediation at every step of the litigation process, through the elevated mediation experience administered by SSAM ADR.

As investment, operational and branding partners in this three part alliance, eLAW’s President Dominick Esposito and PM Legal’ s President, Ross Mallor  worked diligently with Bill Groner, CEO for SSAM to build the framework for a strategic partnership that leverages the experience and assets that each company brings to the table.

Says Esposito, “For eLAW, our platform has always been about helping attorneys manage their case volume, including case tracking, docket management and per diem coverage. Adding mediation and arbitration services is a natural fit for us as attorneys continue their migration away from costly and uncertain litigation into ADR.”

PM Legal’s Mallor also shares his thoughts on the alliance stating, “Our mission is to make it easier for attorneys to move their cases along. SSAM does so by bringing all parties together with outstanding neutrals in a uniquely collaborative environment.”

Adds Groner, “The term strategic partner can be so cliché, but our relationship truly is one based on a clear and strategic vision to provide the absolute highest level of ADR services and solutions to the legal community.”  He adds, “Our association and partnership with eLAW and PM Legal, is a win-win for our respective companies and for every client our joint businesses touch.”

Mallor, joining the team to share his knowledge and leverage his relationships on behalf of new partner SSAM, states, “It is one thing to be associated with a strategic partner, it is another to be deeply involved in the brand experience and the products that are being delivered.  I look forward to sharing my expertise and to building a new legacy for the way our clients look at and access mediation and arbitration services.”

The trio are planning a plethora of team events to further build synergy between the three companies. More information on SSAM’s new eADR program will be available on the eLAW, PM Legal and SSAM websites.  Questions regarding the strategic partnership or this press release can be directed to Jodi Jacobs, Crystal Vision Marketing at jodi@crystalvisionmktg.com.
