X-Pro is the culmination of four years hard work. It was conceived by a small group of lawyers with international experience in the US, UK & Australia. In the course of our work we noticed that hard copy experts' directories were very difficult to use, whilst online directories were often out of date and search options limited.
We asked ourselves what we look for in an expert and unanimously agreed that it was not necessarily an array of impressive qualifications. Better still would be a recommendation from a lawyer who had retained the expert in the past. In our view there was simply no better recommendation than one from a fellow professional.
Experts were consulted, and the feedback obtained largely concurred with this view. Furthermore, many felt that some directories offered poor value for money - they were overpriced and did little more than provide a list. Nothing was produced by the publishers on a regular basis that offered something of value to either expert or lawyer.
X-Pro was therefore born out of a unique perspective - knowing what lawyers wanted and recognising the flaws in what was on offer from our potential competitiors. The core features had to be:
Low cost for experts
Direct, secure access by experts to their own profile - instantaneous updates
Extensive expert profiles with a sound & video options - the first register worldwide to offer this facility
Multiple Advanced Search options
Lawyer recommendations with email links
We rely heavily upon your feedback and input - we cannot improve without hearing from you. X-Pro is more than just another register and is a useful interface between legal professionals and experts everywhere.
