Feit’s Top 5 Blog Posts from 2018

Looking back and assessing the highlights (and lowlights) of the past year is a healthy exercise, both personally and professionally.

Here at Feit Consulting, we reflected on our own blog posts to see what content our readers were most tuned into.

It doesn’t surprise us that readers are most attracted to our posts on pricing practices and the feelings of information professionals regarding the major vendors, and the two dominant players in particular.

Pricing practices have long been purposely obscured by these vendors so they can leverage terms that vary greatly from firm to firm.  This is a true challenge with which firms struggle–and 2018 only cranked up the heat on this complexity with the changes each provider made to their bundling models.  2018 was a year where firms found themselves even less able to understand the offerings of their own long-term partners – and the only salve to this is data.

Feit Consulting’s benchmarks are invaluable, and we are continuously driving market research into our services–but even better, we help firms look at the full picture and understand their firm’s attorneys, and their content needs better. 

And with no further adieu, here are our most popular blogs from 2018:

  1. Inside Bloomberg BNA’s Fall Pricing Surprise
  2. Lexis Legal Pricing Strategy Has Haters
  3. Will Westlaw’s Edge be Undone by its Pricing?
  4. Legal Information Vendor Market Survey Surprising Results
  5. Sole Provider Trend: Alive and Kicking?
