Key hire to work with firms on leveraging leading PracticeLink® IP solution
BURLINGTON, VT – November 2, 2017
Aurora North, an experienced Intellectual Property (IP) software provider and Intapp implementation services company, and LegalShift, LLC., a leading industry management consulting and advisory firm, today formally announced their existing partnership to co-deliver Intellectual Property (IP) solutions to the legal market. The combined team exploits process, workflow and automation-based efficiencies for the benefit of law firm and law department IP practices.
The leading providers of IP practice and business operations improvement solutions have partnered to fill a gap in a market that has been historically underserved. Aurora North and LegalShift offer client-friendly, business-centric and experienced consulting services to benefit the IP practice along with professionalized, latest generation technology tools built and validated by IP practitioners.
“Our Aurora North team delivers extraordinary automation and technology solutions leveraging a long IP practice history, culminating in our PracticeLink® software,” says Chris Kave, president of Aurora North. “We excel in execution with some 1,400 delivered software projects over the past eight years. LegalShift works with us to drive IP practice strategy, process alignment, organization change and program execution. The partnership has enabled us to deliver complicated projects, while increasing predictability and client satisfaction,” continues Kave.
“This combination represents a first in the IP practice marketplace. The Aurora North team has used their deep IP experience to develop PracticeLink, which, as confirmed by our clients, enables true efficiency through full automation of IP work practices,” says Dan Safran, president and CEO of LegalShift. “Our teams have successfully collaborated at multiple clients who have and are reaping the benefits of working with our teams. We love achieving or exceeding client expectations and now can benefit our mutual clients strategically, tactically and technically.”
A recent Am Law 200 global IP law firm client leveraged the co-delivery of LegalShift and Aurora North’s technology and services to significantly increase operational efficiencies across the firm. Working as a single, integrated team, the consultants provided deep IP expertise, extensive operational improvement best practice, senior level project management resourcing and application software design, tools and deployment skills to create a winning outcome. The delivered solution spans both PracticeLink and Intapp Open software, processes and people change. As a result, the demonstrated return on investment totals in the millions of dollars.
