Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) January 25, 2012
Clutch Group announced today that Laura Jungels has joined the organization as a Senior Managing Attorney in its Chicago office. She will be responsible for managing the Firm’s Litigation & Investigation matters and driving innovation within that group.
“Laura’s in-depth experience in business process and how it contributes to the cost-efficiency and quality of legal services will be invaluable as we further streamline our efforts, leverage technology and ultimately deliver more value to our clients,” said Brandon Daniels, President of Managed Services at Clutch Group.
Ms. Jungels joined Clutch Group from Abbott Laboratories, where she was a senior member of the Legal Operations team. In this role, she worked closely with E-Discovery and document review providers as well as outside counsel to implement new strategies and processes for discovery. She was responsible for the coordination of in-house attorneys and paralegals, outside counsel, consulting firms, E-Discovery vendors and document review providers. In addition, Ms. Jungels worked with Abbott’s Preferred Vendor Program, establishing key metrics to continually analyze vendors’ performance. She was also instrumental in evaluating and selecting E-Discovery and review providers to ultimately be part of the program.
“Having worked in-house, I understand the increasing disparity between the cost of legal services and the value clients can derive from those services. I joined Clutch Group because the Firm has been actively working to reduce this incongruity by implementing innovative cost reduction strategies and delivering greater value to the end client,” says Ms. Jungels. “While labor arbitrage is a part of the solution, it is only one small factor in achieving cost savings. Clutch understands this nuance and concentrates on exhausting the potential of technology and process to drive efficiency and quality in legal services.”
“In addition, by providing clients with valuable business insight from the data gathered during their litigation and investigation matters, Clutch has helped clients view their discovery budget as an investment in their performance and risk management,” adds Ms. Jungels. “Clutch Group is on the forefront of many of the changes occurring in the legal market right now and I'm excited to be part of such a dynamic organization.”
