I had the chance today to speak with Lisa DiMonte, CEO of MyLegal.com, a website that helps lawyers select vendors, about the site’s new Legal Vendor Deals program, in which a MyLegal member provides a discount on its services to those in the legal profession.
In an effort to reinvent the typical daily deals model, MyLegal has combined these offers with vendor reviews. As such, the site offers information about an organization or individual, as well as access to any available ratings and commentary associated with that organization or individual.
For the remainder of 2011, membership is free, but as of January 1, 2012, MyLegal expects to charge $600 per month for its promotions. Unlike traditional deal-oriented sites, such as Groupon or LivingSocial, MyLegal only focuses on the legal profession and does not accept any referral fee.
Although this is the first week of the initiative, the company already has 30 deals pending from vendors that offer a variety of services, including e-discovery support, e-briefs, and continuing legal education.
