New York, New York, September, 16, 2022, RubyLaw, the company behind the eponymous leading Content Lifecycle Management (CLM) platform, from the 2022 RubyLaw Legal Marketing Technology Study.
The objective of RubyLaw’s pioneering research is to give legal marketers a representative, current, holistic, and objective viewpoint on the prevailing systems and tools used by law firms of all sizes. RubyLaw is most interested in the legal marketing technology ecosystem as the RubyLaw CLM platform serves as a content hub for firms that then leverage that content via integrations with other systems in the legal marketing technology stack. Commensurate with the importance of the study, RubyLaw has partnered with the Legal Marketing Association (LMA), to expand the reach and visibility of the research.
The result is a groundbreaking paper with insights that may be summarized as follows:
- In comparison to the 2021 study, large gaps in marketing technology adoption remain across the Legal sector
- Firms that underinvest in platforms are costing themselves time, and wasting as much as $100,000/year
- The failure to support key systems with ancillary tools is damaging law firm brands and reputations, leading to missed business opportunities
To support its assertions, RubyLaw’s study is backed by data supplied by LMA members and legal marketers at-large from firms ranging from $0-100 million, $100-500 million, and $500 million-plus in revenue, collected via a 33-question survey disseminated in the spring of 2022. Findings revealed that:
- Below the $500 million revenue segment, upwards of 40% of firms are not using marketing automation, with 70% of firms below the $100 million revenue threshold not using it
- Upwards of 70% of firms below the $500 million revenue segment are not using Proposal & Automation software
- 40% of mid-size law firms ($100-500 million in revenue) are not using Experience Management software, with more than 80% of small firms ($0-100 million) not using it
Initial findings led to the publication of the, followed by a July insights webinar, during which the RubyLaw team walked through the survey results. A follow-on insights webinar, is planned for September 30, 2022.

“We’re thrilled to release this year’s research paper, highlighting gaps in legal marketing technology, but also opportunities for marketers to accelerate progress and improve outcomes for their law firms,” said Jaron Rubenstein, President and Founder of RubyLaw. “The data is clear: Firms are not realizing their marketing potential because they’re failing to invest holistically in platforms and complementary tools, leaving the sector lagging behind others.”
