Dear Foxwordy Members,
With a new year comes a renewed potential for collaboration and community. As 2016 draws to a close, we are especially grateful for our members and want to take this opportunity to thank you, and wish you a happy and healthy holiday season.
As we look ahead to 2017, we're also appreciative of some the great year behind us. Here are a few highlights from the year:
- Earlier in the year, Foxwordy unveiled a bold redesign and our breakthrough collaboration tools, Teams and Clause Collaboration. Legal professionals can create Teams for any number of subjects, ranging from deals and cases to alumni groups and more. For example, solos can connect with other solos who are aligned within their specialty, while in-house lawyers can create teams with colleagues in their department or in other in-house departments who share a common practice area. In addition, law firm professionals can collaborate internally on a major case and law students can now collaborate with each other on class projects. Foxwordy Teams also includes a feature called Clause Collaboration, which allows lawyers to share excerpts of language of any kind, clauses to be used in legal documents or share clauses or other language with a Team for feedback. Real-time editing with colleagues, displays of differences in the text and instant usage in a document with full-formatting retained help lawyers take productivity to the next level. These exciting product updates were detailed in LegalTech News.
- Foxwordy was also proud to be selected as a 2016 sponsor of the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium (CLOC) inaugural Institute, the signature event hosted by the “go-to” organization for the world of legal operations.
- Foxwordy's Founder and CEO Monica Zent was profiled in Stanford Codex's "Startup Spotlight". In the piece, Zent discusses her inspiration, the Foxwordy platform and advice to other entrepreneurs.
- And this year, Foxwordy was honored to partner with The National Bar Association, the Nation's oldest and largest national network of predominantly African-American lawyers, judges, law professors and law students. The partnership, helping 65,000 members of the NBA, was recently covered in LegalTech News. We are delighted to be able to help leverage the power of social media to level the playing field for the legal industry, increasing access to opportunities through networking and collaboration for all legal professionals in segments of underserved markets.
As always, thank you for your being a part of the Foxwordy community. We look forward to more great things ahead in 2017.
Happy collaborating -- and Happy New Year!
-- The Foxwordy Team
