Martindale Connected Passes 12,000 members

Jonathan Lin, Lexis NexisBack on March 31, Martindale Connected launched with 3,000 members and a headwind of skepticism.  Despite this, the online social network has crested over 12,000 members in just 4 months.

I joined myself, made a few connections and am experimenting by starting some discussions.

According to Jonathan Lin, Director of Product Management, Connected has added new improvements:

  • An enhanced the Member Directory with the ability to filter members by name, organization, and location -- all from a single search box.
  • 1 million lawyers in the Martindale-Hubbell database
  • 30,000 legal articles
  • 5,700 legal job postings
  • 100,000 legal experts and service providers
  • Blog posts and forum discussions

To read two success stories, see the article "Martindale-Hubbell: 'The Way I Connected'"  Meredith B. Stone, Vice President and General Counsel for the Americas for NACCO Materials Handling Group Inc. describes her experience first, followed by Evan Brown, a lawyer who specializes in Internet law at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP in Chicago.
