ABOUT LEGAL GPS

So you’ve heard we offer “Legal GPS.” Sound confusing? We think our model is best explained by comparing it to the alternative. So indulge us with one little metaphor.

It’ll make sense, we promise.

MISSION

GO TO THE TOP TOURIST SITE IN BEIJING

Imagine you're dropped into Beijing and tasked with this mission. You don't get any electronics, instead, here's your facts:

  • YOU GET TWO MAPS:
    • A vague map of Beijing with some attractions listed on it in Mandarin that you can't understand, but no roads are identified
    • A Beijing street map with no attractions listed
  • NONE OF THE MAPS HAVE A "YOU ARE HERE" PIN INDICATING YOUR CURRENT LOCATION
  • YOU DON'T SPEAK MANDARIN, SO YOU CAN'T READ ANY OF THE SIGNS
  • YOU GET A CAR

In other words, you both (a) don't know where you are and (b) don't know where you're going. But you need to accomplish the mission, so you start driving and looking for someone who could help.

FIRST STOP: GAS STATION

You stop at the first gas station you see and ask for help in finding the top tourist site. The attendant speaks some English and draws out a route on your street map, unknown to you, to the Great Wall. So you drive along that route, but because you can't read the signs, you're lost again and...

SECOND STOP: CONVENIENCE MART

So you stop at a convenience mart and ask for directions again. This attendant speaks fluent English and after you show her instructions and inform her you need to find the "top tourist site," she tells you that you were going the wrong place. "You were going to the Great Wall. You actually need to go to the Forbidden City, which is the true top tourist space," she says.

So you follow the new route and before you know it , you run into a road closing and what looks like a detour sign, which you can't read, of course. You continue to stop and ask for help, and you're eventually left with five different routes on two maps and nowhere closer to how you started.

WHY THE CURRENT ONLINE LEGAL SERVICE MARKET IS LIKE STRUGGLING WITH MAPS

Trying to complete that mission isn't much different from using Google and contract-based legal websites to solve your legal issues. You'll get a bunch of contracts and conflicting advice along the way that might not apply to your situation.

In the example, the only way you could've accomplished that mission is to know the end game (the "top tourist site") actually was--without knowing that, you'll never complete that mission. And even if you knew that, you couldn't get there without directions along the way telling you where you were at the start and where you needed to go.

WHAT YOU GET WITH GPS

Imagine you're back in Beijing with the same goal of getting to the tourist site. Except this time, you

  • KNOW THE TOP TOURIST SITE (FORBIDDEN CITY).
  • HAVE A GPS THAT GIVES YOU STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS TO THE FORBIDDEN CITY.
  • THE GPS WILL TELL YOU WHERE YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU NEED TO GO AND IT'LL PING YOU IF YOU GET OFF COURSE.

WHAT LEGAL GPS DOES FOR YOUR COMPANY

This is why we’re so pumped about our Legal GPS. It helps you find out where you are in your business and creates the directions from there to where you need to go.

You need it because nothing goes like you planned, and things change along the way. What if you get a new partner or a new employee or you discover an employee who isn’t as trustworthy as you thought? Things change, and you often need to “recalculate” your path so that you stay on track and remain legally compliant.

Legal GPS tells you “how” and “when” to follow its instructions, making your path clear and easy to follow. No stopping for directions, no wondering whether you’re on the right path. And if you do miss a turn or come across an obstacle, Legal GPS recalculates that path for you instead of leaving you to discover your mistake on your own.
