A brief description of our mission
AdvanceLaw was designed by forward-thinking GCs keen to improve the legal market. AdvanceLaw provides customized support to each of our GCs, who view us as an extension of their in-house teams. In sum, we identify strong firms and lawyers for their legal needs, and help them share valuable performance information. The result is greater transparency and better decision-making.
NEW: In collaboration with nearly 30 of our general counsel, we have recently embarked on an exciting project. To learn more about it, please see our overview of the GC Thought Leaders Experiment.
