September 27, 2018 – New York, NY – SSAM ADR, an award-winning boutique dispute resolution firm, headquartered in Westbury, NY, is proud to announce a strategic growth capital investment from eLAW and sister company PM Legal. The new strategic partners’ capital investment will help fund SSAM’s expansion into New York City to service its growing client base.
The investment underscores SSAM’s, eLAW’s and PM Legal’s ongoing commitment to fostering and providing attorneys with access to innovative solutions that meet their evolving needs.
Widely known and well-respected as the source of critical knowledge and services for busy legal professionals, eLAW and PM Legal, the recognized leaders in each of case tracking, per diem services, process service, investigations, and court services, and SSAM, finalized their partnership in early August 2018. The joint venture will now offer mediation and arbitration solutions to all eLAW subscribers and PM Legal clients.
SSAM and eLAW will work together to create ready access for eLaw subscribers to SSAM’s creative and customized ADR services. Shortly, SSAM in conjunction with eLAW will roll out a new eADR Digital Case Submission Program. This program will enable eLAW clients to effortlessly submit a case for ADR by simply clicking a Digital Case Submission button on the eLaw site that will immediately submit their case to SSAM. Various other joint programs are currently in development designed to help lawyers and carriers to better manage and resolve their caseloads.
As investment, operational and branding partners in this three part alliance, eLAW’ s President Dominick Esposito and PM Legal’ s President, Ross Mallory worked diligently with Bill Groner, Founder/CEO for SSAM to build the framework for a strategic partnership that truly works together to leverage the experience and assets that each company brings to the table.
Says Esposito, “For eLAW, our platform has always been about helping attorneys manage their case volume, including case tracking, docket management and per diem coverage. Adding mediation and arbitration services is a natural fit for us as attorneys continue their migration away from costly and uncertain litigation into ADR.”
PM Legal’s Mallor also shares his thoughts on the alliance stating, “Our mission is to make it easier for attorneys to move their cases along. SSAM does so by bringing all parties together with outstanding neutrals in a uniquely collaborative environment.”
Adds Groner, “The term strategic partner can be so cliché, but our relationship truly is one based on a clear and strategic vision to provide the absolute highest level of ADR services and solutions to the legal community.” He adds, “Our association and partnership with eLAW and PM Legal, is a win-win for our respective companies and for every client our joint businesses touch.”
Mallor, joining the team to share his knowledge and leverage his relationships on behalf of new partner SSAM, states, “It is one thing to be associated with a strategic partner, it is another to be deeply involved in the brand experience and the products that are being delivered. I look forward to sharing my expertise and to building a new legacy for the way our clients look at and access mediation and arbitration services.”
The trio are planning a plethora of team events to further build synergy between the three companies. More information on SSAM’s new eADR program will be available on the eLAW, PM Legal and SSAM websites.
