A Legal Operations Platform for Law Departments and Law Firms
LOS ANGELES – June 23, 2020 – Law company Elevate today launched its Ecosystem Legal Management (ELM) software, an easy-to-use, cloud-based legal operations platform to streamline the way law departments and law firms manage legal work and collaborate.
Digital transformation is a priority for CEOs, but corporations often overlook enterprise software for law departments. Instead, General Counsel typically operate a patchwork of different legal technologies to manage legal requests from the business, manage budgets and billing, manage outside counsel, manage contracts, and manage their global legal team. Workflow is often manual, leading to overflowing email inboxes, with no easy way to track who is working on what – or the status of a project. Reporting often relies on time-consuming manual work to gather and assemble relevant data from siloed systems (billing, staffing, project management, etc.).
LOS ANGELES – June 10, 2020 – We are pleased to announce that Elevate has achieved top (Band 1) rankings in the inaugural Chambers Alternative Legal Service Providers Guide across three categories: Flexible Legal Staffing, Litigation Services, and Contract Lifecycle Management.
