Legal Tech and Services Pioneer Jason Block Joins Elevate as VP and GM, Contracts Managed Services
Ex-acting CEO of Axiom spinout Factor (formerly Axiom Managed Solutions) will focus on the growing market for contracts managed services.
October 11, 2022 – LOS ANGELES – Law company Elevate today announced that Jason Block has joined as Vice President and General Manager to head the company’s contracts managed services business unit, working closely with the Elevate consulting team. Jason will report to Steve Harmon, Elevate COO and General Counsel.
According to Wolters Kluwer’s 2022 Future Ready Lawyer Survey, “who” does the work is changing for law departments, with greater use of Alternative Legal Service Providers (84% of respondents) in response to talent challenges (86% of legal departments report significant impact from “the great resignation”) and to leverage technology (87% say it is very important that their law department do so).
“Jason arrives amid growing law department demand to outsource the routine, run-the-business contracting that gets in the way of in-house lawyers’ focus on competitively differentiating activities and higher-risk, higher-impact matters,” said Steve Harmon, Elevate COO and General Counsel. “He offers the domain and sector expertise customers seek when outsourcing complex legal work to achieve high quality, scalable, expert contracting support that delivers business value.”
“Law departments increasingly recognise that outsourcing routine contracting provides strategic advantages beyond cost savings,” said Jason Block, Vice President and General Manager. “Offloading repetitive, low-risk work to Elevate allows law departments to benefit from our economies of scale during high-intensity periods such as acquisition integration, divestiture activities, or responding to regulatory changes.”
