Nalanda makes double hire to spearhead expansion into legal

Precision search technology firm Nalanda Technology is spearheading its entry into the legal sector with the appointment of two professional services business development managers, Neil Derbyshire and Gordon Lindsay.
Derbyshire has over 20 year’s business development experience across a number of industry sectors, most notably accounting.  He joined earlier this year from accounting software company Intuit where he was senior channel business development manager providing solutions to large accountancy practices. Lindsay has been involved with the technology sector for the last 17 years, most recently at UK IT services company Risual, which delivers consultancy, solutions and services based solely on the Microsoft platform.
Nalanda last year launched – a software-as-a-service enterprise search and discovery solution which has been engineered specifically to support law firms in their contract review, investigations or eDiscovery searches. Nalytics has been in development for around a year but according to Nalanda only officially entered the legal sector in March this year.
David Rivett, COO of Nalytics, said: “Nalytics has a number of use cases across the legal sector including, M&A (due diligence), contract analysis, disclosure/litigation, data preservation and research. Law firms need the right tools to help them make better business decisions and improve their customer service experience. Nalytics helps them to easily and quickly search and uncover the right information at the right time. Leading full-service law firm Gosschalks Solicitors use Nalytics and have achieved significant cost savings through reduced overheads and management time. With a precision search functionality that’s second to none, and rapid deployment – it can be up and running in a law firm within 24 hours.”
Nalytics will be hosting a number of free ‘AI in Legal’ events across the UK and the Netherlands, focusing on how artificial intelligence (AI) is impacting the legal sector. These workshops will delve deeper into how legal firms can utilise this technology to improve efficiency and ultimately their bottom line. To register visit
