May 6, 2020Foundation Software Group, developer of the only firm intelligence platform for law firms, announced today that Hans Haglund has joined the company as VP of Business Development. Haglund has a reputation for driving revenue by connecting the dots across client and firm relationships in the pursuit of new opportunities. He is in a unique position to guide firms on how to use their collective intelligence in Foundation to support clients, identify strategic opportunities, and grow business.

As a C-level exec, Haglund has led multiple business development, marketing, sales, and pursuit teams at several top law firms, including Eversheds Sutherland, Blank Rome, Patton Boggs, and Paul Hastings. His approach to business building includes teaming up with top rainmakers to provide meaningful relationship and experience intelligence that enhances outcomes and fuels regenerative revenue sources. Recognizing the value of a holistic client view, Haglund also co-founded Manzama (acquired by Diligent Software Group) to provide client intelligence to law and professional services firms. He is a member of several M&A and venture capital professional organizations, a board member of two emerging growth companies, and a partner in an early stage investment fund.

“Hans was one of the first to recognize the value of harnessing firm intelligence across Business Development teams and rainmaking partners at law firms,” noted Nate Fineberg, CEO and co-founder of Foundation Software Group. “We’re really excited that he’ll be able to share his approach with the growing Foundation community.”

The top revenue generating lawyers and business development professionals have a unique understanding of the complex ecosystem of investors, lenders, operating companies, financial advisors, and others that consummate business transactions. With that background, Hans is in a unique position to share how Foundation goes way beyond traditional CRM tools, allowing more lawyers and BD departments to begin unlocking relationship knowledge for themselves.”

Everyone is trying to generate deal flow. Foundation supports strategic business development initiatives better than any other platform in the marketplace. 

The ability to uncover and leverage previously hidden connections among buyers, sellers, contacts, and the work a firm has done is transformational. I’m fired up to be joining Foundation to help firms harness their intelligence around deals, litigation, and other matters to win and keep more business."

-- Hans Haglund, Vice President Business Development at Foundation Software Group
