Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
Blue Hill Research announces recent activity expanding its reach and expertise in legal and compliance technology. In November, Blue Hill Research’s Principal Analyst David Houlihan signed the Roll of Attorneys for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Houlihan is a practicing attorney whose background includes positions with the United States Attorney’s Office, Boston University, and boutique intellectual property firm GTC Law Group.
In December, Blue Hill also added attorney Alexander Halls as a Research Analyst supporting Blue Hill’s governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) and legal technology practices. Blue Hill’ research in these practices have been profiled in diverse publications ranging from Corporate Counsel to Information Week. The addition of Halls further solidifies Blue Hill’s understanding of the business functions affected by investments in these technologies.
Businesses today face complex, changing, and overlapping networks of regulations. Legal risks and exposures have increased while firms are growing intolerant of unpredictable and costly legal spending. These forces are driving new investments in GRC, practice management, case management, and ediscovery solutions that help improve the efficiency of legal and compliance activities as well as reduce legal costs and exposures.
“Organizations are hungry for guidance that will help them understand how technology can combat compliance, legal risks and costs,” said Blue Hill CEO Ralph Rodriguez, “As areas where ROI is often hard to understand, Blue Hill Research represents the only analyst firm that combines dedicated, success-based research with the practitioner expertise to provide a deep understanding of how an organization’s investment will affect the execution of legal and compliance functions.”
