Elevate Services Appoints Tariq Hassan to Lead Procurement Services for Law Firms
Elevate launches new service line, announcing top procurement strategy veteran Tariq Hassan will lead the new service designed to help law firms reduce costs.
LOS ANGELES – March 27, 2013 – Elevate Services Inc., a global provider of consulting, managed services and technology solutions for law firms and corporate legal departments, today announced the appointment of Tariq A. Hassan as Vice President of Procurement Services. Hassan joins Elevate from Integreon, where he was Chief Procurement Officer and Head of Procurement. He will be based in Boston and London, serving law firms in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
“By bringing Tariq to the Elevate team, we continue to expand the ways Elevate can dramatically help our law firm clients,” said Liam Brown, Founder and Chairman. “As a leading practitioner of procurement strategy, Tariq’s specialty is a non-invasive approach that helps law firms generate significant cost savings quickly without organizational disruption. His track record in this area is very impressive. For example, he recently helped one firm save 25% of a five-year $60 million overhead spend.”
In Hassan’s new role as Vice President of Procurement Services, he will design, deliver and manage procurement services for Elevate’s law firm clients. With 25 years of experience improving supplier management and building third party relationships in the legal and financial services industries, Hassan has reduced several clients’ procurement costs by over 50% and delivered sourcing savings of over 25%, establishing his reputation as an influential procurement strategist and thought leader. Hassan holds a Master’s degree in Law from Cambridge University in the United Kingdom and an LL.M. degree from Suffolk University.
“Elevate’s goal with Procurement Services,” said Hassan, “is to help law firms answer a very fundamental question: ‘Are we paying the right price for the goods and services that we buy from our vendors?’ We help answer that question using a fast-track approach that starts delivering savings within a few months, as opposed to traditional sourcing strategies that typically take a year or more.”
