Foxwordy, the First Private Social Network for Lawyers, Makes Official Debut

New Social Network Offers Customized Tools and Services Designed for In-House Counsel, Solo Practitioners and Lawyers at BigLaw and Small Firms

PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Foxwordy, the world's first private social network for lawyers, made its official debut today. By instantly connecting credible legal colleagues, Foxwordy allows lawyers to collaborate in a private setting, enhance professional reputations and access new opportunities.

"Foxwordy re-invents the social media experience from the perspective of today's legal professionals," said Monica Zent, Founder & CEO of Foxwordy.  "It's clear many lawyers are becoming increasingly comfortable using traditional social media outlets like Facebook and LinkedIn for personal usage but have been less likely to fully embrace these mainstream outlets for serious legal business.  Foxwordy is offering the best of the social media experience with a suite of tools and services built especially for lawyers who require the highest-level of privacy, especially when it comes to sharing documents, advice and networking."

Benefits of Foxwordy's cloud-based platform include:

Enhanced, Private Collaboration: Foxwordy's invitation-only model brings together relevant top-tier colleagues across the legal market to effectively collaborate in real-time and allows them to share mission-critical knowledge on a private social-networking platform.

Reputation Enhancement: On Foxwordy, lawyers grow their reputations based on the nature of their interactions with their peers.  This puts lawyers in control of their own reputation and gives them a fresh alternative to the often-arbitrary five-star ratings on a multitude of consumer sites.

New Opportunities: Through Foxwordy, legal professionals can expand their relevant network by building relationships with fellow lawyers that lead to a variety of new business and career opportunities.

"Foxwordy is the social collaboration platform designed to reinvent the way legal professionals do business, from delivering the highest level of efficiency to yielding powerful results for their clients," said Marci Rubin, Executive Director of the California Minority Counsel Program, a Member of Foxwordy. "Foxwordy is already solving age-old workflow issues and transforming how we collaborate with our industry colleagues."

Foxwordy was developed by Zent based on her experience as the Founder of ZentLaw, a leading alternative law firm based in Silicon Valley, serving law departments of the Fortune 100 - and the hottest startups. ZentLaw is recognized as a ground-breaking "hybrid" law firm focused on delivering the highest quality at the lowest cost through an all employee model that creates a lean, efficient and highly collaborative business unlike any other law firm.

"As a successful businessperson, lawyer and entrepreneur, Monica Zent intuitively knows the pressing needs of today's challenged legal sector, and Foxwordy is revolutionizing the legal industry's status quo by putting the tools of effective collaboration into every lawyer's hands," said Daniel Quintero, former founding General Counsel of Sony Optiarc and Founding and Managing Partner of Prometheus Partners LLP, a group of accomplished former law firm partners and in-house counsel.

New Foxwordy members receive a 3-month free trial after which they renew membership at introductory pricing.
