Onit is thrilled to announce that our client TIAA is a finalist for the Transatlantic Legal Department of the Year award! TIAA was nominated based on the successful transformation of their legal department by implementing a new technology platform.
Brad Rogers, TIAA’s COO and chief of staff, was tasked with transforming the entire legal operations function by bringing together law department employees and vendor partners from across the world to streamline processes and implement a comprehensive technology platform that would allow the best use of each law professional’s time.
TIAA collaborated with Onit to implement cutting-edge technology at their firm. One of their law department’s core principals in choosing a software company was ease of user experience. The new technology chosen by TIAA was used to streamline processes including access to virtual resources and managing outside counsel. The ability and flexibility to make changes and easily make improvements in-stream as often as required was also an important factor. Rogers’ team was now also able to build tools to manage their day-to-day working list of matters. With Onit’s Apptitude platform they were able to develop what they needed quickly into easily configurable dashboards and collaborative workspaces with real-time visibility into the process.
This isn’t the first time one of Onit’s clients has achieved this honor. Previous award winners among Onit’s clients include global giants Jaguar Land Rover and Archer Daniels Midland. The Transatlantic Awards recognize excellence in handling transatlantic matters across the key areas of corporate, finance and disputes, as well as highlighting law firm innovation, commitment to pro bono, outstanding transatlantic strategy, and in-house leaders. The winners will be announced at a gala dinner in London on June 13, 2019.
