ILTA Peer to Peer Article | Launching a Firmwide Intelligence Tool in the Midst of a Global Pandemic

In the current ILTA Peer to Peer issue, Thriving in the Post-Pandemic Legal Tech World, Akin Gump’s Jennifer Larivee and Aravind Ambalavanan provide valuable insight into their firm’s technology transformation during – and despite – the COVID pandemic.

The duo describe how their marketing, IT, and project management teams were able to collaborate on a firm-wide rollout of Foundation to meet the needs of their users, from lawyers to business development professionals. While Akin Gump’s curve balls were a global pandemic and a new remote work environment, their sound advice on remaining agile, involving all stakeholders in the roll out plan, and leaning on expert guidance from the vendor can be applied to a firm intelligence launch under any circumstances. 

By following best practices and leaning into a revamped training and support plan, the team was able to deliver a solution that moves them “beyond experience management and along the path of digital transformation.” Both affirm that the new data platform puts Akin in “a superior position to take advantage of opportunities that come our way both during and after the pandemic.”
