ANNAPOLIS, Md., Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Mplace Inc. – a SaaS solution that is innovating legal staffing in the document review, contract review and due diligence markets – today announced the signing of its newest client, one of the nation's leading e-discovery providers, Kroll Ontrack.
"We're proud to announce our partnership with Kroll Ontrack and excited to work with Kroll Ontrack CEO Mark Williams and his team to support their needs for efficient document review recruiting and staffing," said Aden King, Co-Founder of the newly launched Mplace platform.
Rajesh Bagga, Senior Director of Advanced Review Services for Kroll Ontrack, said of the new venture, "As an organization that provides advanced document review services to our clients globally, Kroll Ontrack welcomes partnering with Mplace to support our fast-paced staffing needs and to help us recruit qualified legal professionals for our projects."
Mplace was founded in 2015 by brothers Aden and Caleb King. Industry veterans, the Kings sought to give a much-needed refresh to the more traditional forms of contract attorney recruiting, which include direct hires and classical staffing agencies. They launched Mplace in the spring of 2016.
Caleb King cites speed, transparency and trust as the advantages gained by clients using the Mplace model. "Our platform and mobile app allow clients and legal professionals to communicate directly with each other, which means that job offers can be made and accepted directly between the parties in real time. Clients enjoy an efficient, reliable and transparent staffing process."
The subscription-based mobile platform allows clients to direct-source and efficiently assemble document review teams from a pool of legal professionals that have undergone Mplace's stringent vetting process.
Mplace was created with Millennials in mind. Aden King commented, "Many reviewers are recent law school graduates and we recognize the importance of our platform being 'Millennial-friendly.' We're connected more than ever to our mobile phones and convenience is key. Mplace represents a quantum leap forward in staffing because we're mobile-based and we've fixed the workflow. Clients make actual job offers directly to legal professionals, rather than a contract reviewer essentially responding to a posting and applying for a job. Our mobile-based solution allows for speedy "on-the-go" offer and acceptance of jobs offers."
Mplace membership and its validation services are free to legal professionals.
Other Mplace features include automatic conflict screening, in-project communication, onboarding and off boarding, two-way rating and a greener process with all documents uploaded electronically.
