Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) January 5, 2011
doeLEGAL, a cutting-edge provider of legal spend management and electronic invoicing solutions for the corporate legal marketplace, today announced that industry veteran Jeff Hodge joins the doeLEGAL team as Executive Director for Corporate Solutions. “We have developed and deployed what our clients and the legal marketplace tell us is the best legal spend and matter management solution they have evaluated. After years of real world experience and preparation, we are determined to combine our cutting-edge technology with a best-of-breed expert and market leader to help us take it globally. Everyone we spoke with said Jeff was that person”, said Tom Russo, CEO of doeLEGAL. Jeff will focus his efforts on helping the company to continue to build its market presence, refine its offerings and innovate for future growth.
Jeff joins doeLEGAL with more than 20 years working with law departments and law firms to advance their understanding and use of legal technology in the US and internationally. Having worked at law departments, law firms and corporate-focused legal technology vendors and consultancies in the US and Europe, Jeff brings a breadth and depth of experience to support doeLEGAL in reaching the next level. “My interest in doeLEGAL developed quite unexpectedly”, said Hodge. “When I first saw doeLEGAL’s legal spend management solution, doeSUMMIT™, I was stunned. doeSUMMIT™ is everything that the legal spend management world has been trying to achieve. What doeLEGAL has been able to develop over the last two years is remarkable, their clients are avid fans of the technology, and I immediately saw it as ‘the next best thing’ for the corporate legal market. It is cutting-edge and it is delivered at a price point that makes it available to the entire marketplace – exactly what the market desires when it needs it most”
“We continually seek ways to elevate the value of our legal enterprise collaboration solutions. The next generation technology we employ is only half of that mix. The expertise of the people supporting these solutions is where our clients receive their true value. We are pleased to have Jeff drive this effort within the corporate legal community,” said Kathy Ryan, Director of Development at doeLEGAL.
An industry veteran with over two decades of experience, Jeff’s leadership has been instrumental to introducing the concepts of "the business of law" and "managing with metrics and technology" to general counsel and management in the US and internationally. These are core elements in doeLEGAL’s innovative approach to legal spend management. Collaboration, elevated metrics and analytics are the key differentiators between the doeSUMMIT™ e-Billing and Matter Management Solution and our closest competitors. “We took the experience of all of the e-Billing, matter and spend management vendors who have come before us, listened to our clients and the marketplace and overlaid all of that on top of an innovative technology platform to develop doeSUMMIT™. Whether a client is looking for a ‘behind the firewall’ solution, hosted or ASP, Summit delivers. Jeff was the last piece of the puzzle enabling us to go to market with an end-to-end message for law department users,” said Peter Benedetti, Director of Sales.
