Sharing Economy Benefits the Legal Industry

What is the sharing economy?

The term “sharing economy” is based on the “peer-to-peer” sharing of goods and services where buyers and sellers make direct exchanges with one another. Because technology lends itself so well to this, today it often implies a transaction that occurs online. We’ve seen it used as a substitute for hailing a cab and booking a hotel, and now it has grown even more to not just include peer-to-peer transactions, but also business to business (B2B).

eCourt Reporters is an industry first platform for freelance court reporters and attorneys and schedulers to find each other and book online. Why is this such a good thing? There are a multitude of benefits for both court reporters and attorneys/schedulers.
