Legal IT Newswire people news… Doxly names former Bluelock CEO Christopher Clapp as Executive Chairman

Dolly just announced the appointment of former Bluelock president and CEO Christopher Clapp as executive chairman. Clapp joins the Doxly board after leading the growth of disaster recovery leader Bluelock for nearly eight years until its acquisition by InterVision, a Huron Capital-backed company.
“Doxly is the first transaction management software service that enables legal teams to handle all aspects of a deal on a single platform,” said Haley Altman, Doxly founder and chief executive officer. “With the addition of Christopher’s leadership and expertise in scaling high-growth companies, we have an even greater opportunity to fast-track our growth and deliver the innovations law firms need to transform how they deliver legal services to their clients and remain competitive in today’s market.”
Under Clapp’s leadership as president and chief executive officer, Bluelock became an industry leader in the Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) market, having been recognized in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for DRaaS as a visionary and identified by Forrester as a Leader in the DRaaS Wave.
“Throughout my career, I have participated in many legal transactions and have directly observed the opportunity to dramatically improve the efficiency, transparency and the effectiveness of collaboration in the deal process. I’ve wished we had a solution like Doxly many times,” said Clapp. “Haley and the Doxly team have great momentum, a great brand and a big vision, and I’m excited to help lead the company’s next stage of growth.”
Over the past 35 years, Clapp has served in executive leadership positions for enterprise software and technology organizations. He has led organizations through three exits, as CEO of Bluelock and ANGEL Learning and as a board member at PolicyStat. A characteristic of Clapp’s career is his focus on building client-oriented, high-performing teams which have led to long-term value-creation and success.
This announcement follows the recent launch of Doxly’s integration with NetDocuments, the leading cloud-based content management platform for law firms and corporate legal and compliance departments.
