Legal Services Innovator Will Focus on Consulting and Enterprise Solutions
LOS ANGELES – June 3, 2020 – Law company Elevate today announced that Stephen Allen will join the company on July 1, as Vice President, Enterprise Solutions and Get Sh*t Done, with responsibility for consulting, enterprise solutions, strategic pricing, and account management. He will join Elevate as a member of Elevate’s Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and will report to Liam Brown, Elevate’s Chairman and CEO.
“Stephen will help us integrate our many consulting, technology, and service offerings to deliver expert-led, multi-disciplinary ‘Jobs To Be Done’ solutions to address the business of law problems that law departments and law firms face,” said Liam Brown, Elevate’s Chairman and CEO.
Stephen is a recognized leader of legal service transformation. Last year, he was the inaugural recipient of the ‘Law Firm Legal Intrapreneur’ Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Europe Award, and the architect of the LIBOR solution, which won the Financial Times ‘Innovation in Collaboration’ North America Award. He previously designed and implemented the first-ever multi-year, fixed-price law firm enterprise legal service, for Thames Water.
“Stephen and I have worked together extensively, and I have admired his ability to achieve win-win-win economics through collaboration amongst law firms, their clients, and law companies like Elevate,” said John Croft, Elevate’s President. “He has an uncanny sense of the opportunities that tomorrow’s market will present – and how to build effective solutions today.”
Stephen joins Elevate from Hogan Lovells, where he was responsible for innovation, data science, legal tech (AI, Machine Learning, Automation), digitalization, and disruption.

“Legal services are evolving at a quicker pace than ever, and the future is speaking to those who pay attention,” said Stephen Allen. “Elevate is listening and responding to what the future is telling us. My time at Hogan Lovells has been the best of my career. However, this role at Elevate is irresistible.
