Let our expertise metrics demonstrate your commitment to lawyer diversity
Law firms today that can't demonstrate their commitment to genuine diversity are losing their best clients - and their most talented lawyers - to firms that can.

At Meisterline® we enable law firm leaders to communicate their diversity achievements more effectively, using our objective, science-based expertise metrics that show clear quantitative results.

We're also able to help law firms attract higher-margin work, avoid their services being seen (and priced) as commodities, reduce associate attrition rates, and build deeper client loyalty across every practice group.
"what gets measured gets improved"
Peter Drucker
Can law firm partners really improve lawyer diversity without measuring progress at every level of their organisation?
expertise metrics reveal the true value of a firm's lawyers.
KUJI Ratings are the result of decades of applied cognitive research. They have been calibrated on attorneys from over 100 of the world's leading law firms, and can uniquely identify the untapped value of experts in all sizes of law firms.

With these independent and objective ratings, law firms can demonstrate to their clients quantitatively the expertise they can offer and the value-for-money services they can provide.

Through the unprecedented clarity they provide, KUJI Ratings can law firms to become service providers of choice to blue-chip organisations and the most sophisticated legal buyers.
Meisterline® allows lawyers and others to measure the expertise of legal specialists in ways that were not previously possible. The science behind Meisterline® uses cognitive modelling based on proprietary algorithms which can quantify meaningful metrics of expertise.

Clients in today's global legal market are looking for:
Value-for-money legal services, without sacrificing quality
Law firms that are serious about workplace diversity
Quantitative data to support their legal-spend decisions
The three biggest challenges for successful law firms are:
Securing better clients and more high-margin work
Avoiding being viewed as mere "commodity" service providers
Capturing maximum value for the expertise of their lawyers
Law firms that can't rise to these challenges are slipping down the corporate law pecking order.

They're losing critical clients and their brightest attorneys, with the resulting margin-pressure limiting - sometimes fatally - their profitability.
Meet the diversity challenge
When gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and other irrelevant factors influence hiring and promotion decisions within a law firm, their best employees and clients will ultimately leave. Objective, merit-based assessments lead to demonstrably fairer outcomes - and more motivated, diverse and effective legal teams.

Our highly granular data reveal the impact of diversity initiatives in specific practices areas, by office, and firm-wide. They are unambiguous indicators of an organisation's commitment to the principles of fairness and equity in valuing, assigning and developing their attorneys.

We're helping to meet the expectations of clients, law firms and lawyers who believe that only by independent, objective and quantitative measurement will diversity improvements become a reality.
"... 34 per cent of UK businesses plan to introduce or enhance targets to improve the diversity of their external legal advisers, and nearly a third of in-house lawyers have ditched external firms for not providing a sufficiently diverse team."
The Times, 18 June 2019
"... women and minorities face around a 50% higher attrition rate than white men."
New York City Bar
"While more than half of solicitors / lawyers are female, and women dominate all support positions, they represent only 17% of equity partners and 37% of salaried partners at Australian law firms."

"The idea behind the Meisterline® score is to enable law firms and clients to make more informed choices as to how they identify and manage legal expertise. ... Not just some flaky, easily gameable scale, there's some serious science behind the index."

"If a bright lawyer is working ... with very, very low costs but still has got an excellent brain and a lot of expertise, that's really valuable. The big challenge ... is to make themselves known. How do they put themselves in front of me so that I can see them."
Rosemary Martin
Group General Counsel
"Meisterline® is a fascinating new development that may get us the closest we have ever been for a law firm partner to be able to say with empirical rigour and justification, 'I am more expensive than the alternatives and there is good reason for that ..."

"We think we're selling expertise, experience, and judgment … Clients don't want lots of lawyers on their matter if we can effectively handle it with leaner staffing. And they don't want to be paying for the training of younger lawyers who have less experience."
