Who We Are
Legalpedia Nigeria Limited is a Limited Liability Company set up to provide relevant and cutting-edge technology to the Nigerian Legal Profession by reducing, to the barest minimum, the use of manual methods within the courtroom, the judges’ chambers, court registries, and in Law Firms.
We commenced business operations in 2007 as Honeyfountain Consult Limited with a vision to provide the most comprehensive set of technology solutions for the justice sector. Our core values centered on quality, integrity, and service.
The overall purpose of this company is to make legal practice much more productive and profitable for the Legal profession.
We Are Changing the Way Legal Professionals Practice.
Legalpedia was borne out of the need to fill huge technology gaps that existed in the legal sector in the early 2000s.
Realising that the most efficient and effective legal services in less than a decade from now will be those that are able to successfully adjust their business models to use artificial intelligence–type tools while at the same time promoting and delivering the part of the legal service value proposition that the machines are not able to provide, our responsibility is to make such technology tools available and educate the legal profession on its availability, use, and benefits.
Over the next four years, the available computing power of legal professionals will likely increase at least twice and maybe three times. This is also coupled with benefits that will allow solo and small firm lawyers to access more, less expensive information, to create and join communities of lawyers, and to collaborate with in these communities in a way that is similar to having the networking and support that lawyers enjoy in large firms.
This increase in computing power and new devices will drive our company’s success due to our provision of services such as document automation, decisions engines, verbatim reporting tools, communication and collaboration tools, legal research tools, etc. The net effect of these trends in computing and its benefits will empower lawyers to compete at a higher level, and judges to unravel complicated cases easily and speedily.
Playing a central role in pioneering the deployment and training required to activate the technological possibilities already described gives our company much relevance and significance in this business space
