HOUSTON – September 10, 2020 Onit, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise workflow solutions, including enterprise legal management, contract lifecycle management and business process automation, today announced the fall series for its Lean Into LegalOps program. The online community unites legal operations professionals worldwide to share experiences and advice in this time of dispersed operations. Since its launch in March, there have been more than 2,000 registrations for Onit Lean Into LegalOps events and networking discussions.

General counsel, inside counsel and legal operations professionals can join at no charge for both the United States and Europe.

“Onit technologies helped us adjust to the process of going 100% remote back in March. Now, Onit’s Lean Into LegalOps supports customers and the rest of the legal community looking to connect and learn from each other. I’m excited to see the program continue beyond the initial pandemic emergency and provide more opportunities for legal operations professionals,” commented Christine DiDomizio, legal operations lead at Jaguar Land Rover North America.

Lean Into LegalOps is more than a series of events. It’s a community fueled by contributions from legal operations innovators and thought leaders,” said Eric M. Elfman, CEO and co-founder. “At Onit, we want our customers to succeed and we will empower them to do so in any circumstance.”
