Our Ambitious Plans for 2019

Our Ambitious Plans for 2019
Legal Nodes Team has been blown away by the warm reception of our Platform by the Legal Tech community. We have already received first requests from our Users and letters of interest from lawyers all around the world. We can not thank you enough for putting your trust in us and we are looking forward to disrupting legal industry together!
However, we strongly believe that this is not a time for us to stop. You can already order, receive and pay for consulting services utilizing our smart contract, but what you see right now – is just a beginning and we would like to share some of our plans for the next year with you.

“Smart” matchmaking
Right now, you are being matched with the most suitable legal expert by our team manually by processing your country and service of choice. But as we are in never-ending process of negotiating with potential experts and constantly growing our global network, manual matching shall soon enough become outdated.
Moreover, we think of legal services automatization as one of the tools for facilitation their provision and consumption. This is why we are planning to develop and implement our very own NLP that will process your non-structured requests, inputted in a textbox. Our “smart” matchmaking shall extract relevant information from your enquiry and compare it with our global network, not only picking the most suitable expert, but also eliminating any “human factor” from this process.

As legal consultants in the blockchain sphere ourselves, who also receive payments in virtual currencies, we acknowledge the problem of fluctuations more than anyone else does.
And even though we do get myriads requests to introduce fiat and alternative cryptocurrency payments to our Platform (which we also will!), smart contracts only work with virtual currencies. Thereby, to deal with the volatility problem, we are already working on the implementation of stablecoins to our transaction system.

KYC and Client Pre-Screening
For most authorized lawyers, KYC procedures constitute an integral part of any consulting relations. We not only understand that but also want to save our legal experts their most precious resource – their time.
Just like the legal industry is evolving, so does technology: the world has already seen the development of KYC features that utilize video and image recognition and other modern ways of client verification. We have already turned our gaze into this direction and shall introduce a pre-screening feature in the nearest future.

And more…
Our plans are quite ambitious, but so is our Team. In 2019, we shall not stop improving our Platform to ensure both our users and legal experts get the most out of their use of Legal Nodes.
Now, whilst Christmas holidays are approaching and festive spirit is upon us, our legal engineers are still constantly designing the most up-to-date solutions on the edge of law and technology for you to utilize.
We had already come a long way, but we do not intend to stop there. Happy Holidays and we hope to see you in 2019!
