What customers are saying about Practical Law

Paul Hurdlow from FloSports talks about the value of Practical Law

“I don't want to have to get a tutorial from outside counsel on things if I can read about them myself. I need their experience and judgment to help me shape solutions, but I don't want to pay them a thousand dollars to tell me about something that I can find and read about on Practical Law.”

Kristen Howell shares how an investment in Practical Law makes for savings

"Just in one month, we’ve saved easily over $10,000 on outside counsel, probably more. Through the course of a year, I expect we’ll be cutting more than an entire employee’s worth of time from our outside counsel budget.”
