Lawyers Travel Meetings & Events, a division of Lawyers Travel, the 5th largest corporate travel management company by sales volume in the U.S. as ranked by Business Travel News, launched its one-of-a-kind National Trials Program earlier this year at the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) 2016 Conference.

Since its May launch, additional hotel properties in 10 major cities have been added to the National Trials Program roster, with more in the pipeline for 2017.

Each of the exclusive preferred hotel properties in the National Trials Program have extensive experience with trials travel needs and understand the intricacies of trials business.

“With the National Trials Program we’ve consolidated all of the knowledge we’ve gained through planning law firm trials travel for over thirty years and we’ve partnered that management know-how with the best properties to serve this unique niche,” said Jenn Smukler, Director of Sales, Meetings & Events at Lawyers Travel. “In doing so, Lawyers Travel has created something brand new for law firm clients that’s going to streamline the complexities of trials travel for law firms and save them time and money. The early and expected growth of this program is due to the fact that it’s resonating with law firms and hotel properties. Law firms today are watching the bottom-line costs of trials; poorly negotiated contracts can result in penalties ranging from $10,000 to $80,000. The National Trials Program helps law firms avoid these issues; through our strategic hotel partnerships and trial management expertise, our program helps clients save up to 27%.”

Some unique benefits of the program include: discounted rates at hotels in close proximity to courthouses with high trial volume including: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.; partnerships with hotels in smaller markets nationwide in order to support firms that may be conducting trials in more remote locations; negotiating complex trial contracts (e.g. attrition, cancellation, rebook clauses, etc.); sourcing functional war rooms; negotiating food and beverage; capturing and reporting on client/matter numbers and more.
