Lawyer ratings service in the works…

Heard through the grapevine here in Seattle that a Web based lawyer ratings service is in the works. Some folks from one of the biggest Internet companies are apparently behind it.

I am betting on the success of a new player versus LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell’s lawyer rating service. LexisNexis has a tough time attracting the innovative folks they need to compete on the net. In addition it has not been known for its speed in bringing new products to market or keeping up with innovation from startups. And remember, Barnes and Noble dismissed Amazon only 10 years ago.

What do you bet that in 5 or 6 years, we’re discussing the monopoly LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell used to have on the lawyer ratings game? We’ll also be discussing how much more value the new service has compared to the old.

Like Dave Winer says, users on the net will not wait for the large companies to give users what users know is a better product.
