Lonely Planet announced earlier this month that its in-house team worked with LawAdvisor to develop LawAdvisor Corporate, a tailored platform for corporate counsel.
LawAdvisor Corporate streamlines procurement and offers real-time tracking of expenditure and milestones to improve the transparency of matters, according to a statement from Lonely Planet.
Lonely Planet senior legal counsel Kate Sullivan said the tool will help the legal team make the best choices when it comes to outsourcing legal work.
“We require legal expertise across a vast spectrum of business needs,” she said.
“It is great to have one platform to do this through, which builds the feedback loop right into the process, offering greater efficiency and better service overall.”
Lonely Planet said the implementation of LawAdvisor Corporate was part of its transformation from a traditional guidebook publisher to a multimedia travel company, ensuring that digital innovation permeates every part of its business.
LawAdvisor founder Brennan Ong said Lonely Planet’s drive to innovate made it an ideal partner for LawAdvisor Corporate.
“Lonely Planet’s complex, evolving and globally distributed business was a great launch partner as their appetite for digital improvement, coupled with a wide variety of legal scenarios, put the product’s development through its paces,” he said.
Lonely Planet also helped guide the development of LawAdvisor’s Rapid Contracts tool, which can be used with or without LawAdvisor Corporate. Rapid Contracts allows legal teams to automate significant parts of contract creation, negotiation and execution.
