Elevate Vice President Pratik Patel Honored by Induction into College of Law Practice Management

Distinguished legal industry group recognizes Elevate leader as 2017 Fellow

LOS ANGELES – October 31, 2017 – Elevate Vice President of Products and Innovation, Pratik Patel, was inducted last week as a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management, in recognition of his work with corporate legal departments and law firms. Each year, Fellows are nominated and elected by their peers and formally inducted during the College’s Annual Conference, held this year in Atlanta.

“It’s an honor to be accepted into this distinguished group of legal industry leaders,” says Patel. “I’m thrilled that my work helping legal professionals innovate has been recognized.”

At Elevate, Patel works with both law firms and law departments to design, build, and implement mutually beneficial ‘business of law’ solutions. He frequently speaks and writes about best practices developed over more than a decade of hands-on legal management consulting work. In 2015, Patel was named Consultant of the Year by the ILTA Distinguished Peer Awards.

“Pratik’s work has been at the forefront of change in the legal industry,” said Elevate Founder and Executive Chairman Liam Brown who was inducted as a COLPM Fellow himself in 2014. “Pratik breaks down walls between law firms and law departments. He launched Elevate’s consulting business, launched Elevate’s legal operations services business, leads Elevate’s ‘ME2’ initiative to integrate AI into our technology and services, and he leads the development of our Cael ELM, providing legal departments and law firms with a common technology platform for managing and performing legal work.”
