CONCORD, Mass.--()--Avention, maker of OneSource Solutions for smarter business insights, today announced law firms around the world are using its OneSource Solutions to provide lawyers with relevant client and business information, research potential conflicts of interest and identify new business opportunities. Avention provides firms – such as Eversheds; Flaster Greenberg PC; Bird & Bird; and Holland & Knight – with the insights to develop detailed company reports, simplify risk and market assessments or conduct competitive research.

Becoming trusted business advisers for their clients means lawyers need to understand a company’s industry, financials, competitive landscape and so much more.

  • Build thorough, accurate company reports, including summaries, news, financials and executive insights; and
