From MLB to Compass to vLex Canada!
The Compass platform came together quickly, and the shift to vLex will be just as quick.
While the original Maritime Law Book website had been operating for many years, when we, as new owners, took over at the beginning of November, we did so knowing we were racing against a clock. The underlying third-party licenses supporting the search platform deployed on that website were set to expire, and there were many other factors at play that precluded the possibility of maintaining the former site for an extended period.
We needed a plan to continue to serve the many Maritime Law Book clients across the country - the courts, the national and regional law firms, the governments, the solo and small firms, and the law schools subscribing to campus-wide licenses.
We had to be fast, but we knew no corners could be cut if we were to tryly lay the foundation for a revolutionary approach to supporting legal research.
