Hogan Lovells Selects ‘Elevate Project’ Elevate’s Project Management Platform to Foster Collaboration
LONDON – January 28, 2020 – Law company Elevate announced today that Hogan Lovells has selected Elevate Project, its leading cloud-based pricing, budgeting, and project management application, to help the firm’s lawyers and legal project managers collaborate with each other and their clients on ongoing matters.
“Clients have been loud and clear that having an effective Legal Process Management (LPM) strategy is essential,” says Stephen Allen, Head of Innovation and Digital at Hogan Lovells. “Elevate Project is a straightforward, lawyer-friendly application that facilitates LPM for lawyers, enabling them to effectively manage projects against budget and schedule. As a true multinational firm, it is critical to support partners at scale with technology that enables end-users at the firm to easily customise parameters to meet their clients’ needs, while also streamlining and automating activities that become bottlenecks to achieving scale. Our lawyers and clients will benefit from the transparency, quicker turnaround and process improvements from harnessing this tool.”
“The Elevate development team designed Elevate Project to help partners and legal project managers collaborate on pricing, planning, monitoring, and reporting throughout a matter’s life cycle,” explains John Croft, President of Elevate. “With its intuitive design and targeted automation, firms can scale their ability to maximise realization, while also prioritising client relationships and collaboration. We are very pleased to provide Hogan Lovells with the right tools that facilitate putting their clients first.”
Following a six-month pilot period, Hogan Lovells has elected to roll out Elevate Project to an additional 1,500 users in Q1 of 2020. The pilot LPM Team found that leveraging Elevate Project’s existing features and the firm’s Customer Success resources empowered the team and fostered synergy among LPM, Lawyers, and Technology. The success of the pilot also instilled the confidence needed by Hogan Lovells’ leadership team to greatly expand usage of the platform firm-wide, further ensuring the firm’s ongoing commitment to quality, performance, and excellence.
