Providing affordable legal research to Hire an Esquire’s lawyers

San Francisco, CA (November 19, 2019) On Tuesday morning, Casetext, the fastest growing legal research platform in the country, announced a partnership with Hire an Esquire, the company reinventing legal staffing. With this partnership, Hire an Esquire attorneys will have access to exclusive discounts to Casetext’s comprehensive database and cutting-edge technology, as well as private practice-building events and webinars jointly sponsored by the two companies.

The companies partnered in response to overwhelming demand by Hire an Esquire’s customers for more streamlined access to the tools lawyers rely on to provide high quality legal representation to their clients.  

“Hire an Esquire’s ongoing commitment to bringing efficiency to the outdated practice of legal staffing is a perfect marriage to our own commitment to bringing efficiency and affordability to the field of legal research,” explained Casetext’s CEO and Founder, Jake Heller. “We are proud to help them continue to enable their attorneys to do their best work.”

Casetext has been a major player in the legal technology scene since late 2016, when it released its revolutionary A.I. legal research technology, CARA, which is now relied on by more than 35% of the Am Law 100. More recently, Casetext has made waves for its rapid growth amongst small law firms and solo practitioners as an affordable replacement to Lexis Nexis and Westlaw. Since its launch into this market less than a year ago, over 4,000 small and solo firms have left their prior legal research tools for Casetext to improve their general litigation work-product and demonstrate their commitment to effective, efficient client representation.

“Their growth over the past year shows how much lawyers are clamoring for an alternative to the current legal research duopoly,” said Hire an Esquire’s CEO and Founder, Julia Shapiro. “We are proud to work with Casetext to help fill this need for our talented attorneys.”

Since launching in 2011, Hire an Esquire has been changing the face of legal staffing with a growing network of 12,000+ vetted legal professionals, and 100+ registered AmLaw 200 firms, boutique firms, and in-house legal departments. Their proprietary online platform evaluates a candidate’s experience and expertise to best match them with contract and permanent positions at law firms and legal departments of all sizes. The result is efficient and flexible legal staffing, built for a modern workforce.
