I know that Matt Homann has agonized for the last few months over an issue involving an old blog posting he made about LegalMatch. The situation was, at many levels, not really of his own making, but it had put him in a tricky spot.
It also made it difficult to make the decision to move LexThink into the business of private conferences (in addition to more public conferences, to be announced soon). With LegalMatch as the first private LexThink customer, it became important for Matt to reach a decision about how to handle his LegalMatch issue.
Matt reached his decision today and publicly announced it today. I really like the decision Matt made and the painstaking and careful process he took to make that decision. He’s asked for people to let him know what they think about the decision he made. Let him know.
For me, I’m more pleased than ever to be working with Matt and Sherry on building out the LexThink vision. I might miss the conversations I’ve had with Matt over the past few months about LegalMatch, but I definitely look forward to the room it will free up to talk more about where LexThink will be going.
DISCLOSURE: To the extent any fee LexThink receives from LegalMatch is not plowed back into LexThink development efforts, I’ll be entitled to some share of the fee. I believe that this has no impact whatsoever on the opinions I express in the post, but you should factor it in to your evaluation of what I’ve said here.
