The February Orange Rag Newsletter is Here!

 It’s been a busy second month of 2022 with many big deals and hires, all sadly overshadowed by the invasion of Ukraine towards the end of February. Legal IT Insider applauds Litera’s CEO, Avaneesh Marwaha for saying on LinkedIn that the Litera family stands up for Ukraine, where the Chicago-headquartered company has a significant number of staff. Other business leaders need to follow suit: take a look at our top story below for more on that.  

February brought some big partnership news, with both iManage and Intapp announcing global strategic partnerships with Microsoft. Don’t miss our interview with iManage’s CEO Neil Araujo about the impact the partnership is expected to have on iManage’s roadmap.  


On the deals front, our vendor of the month is UK tech company Peppermint Technology, which announced in February that UK top 100 firms Shakespeare Martineau and Kingsley Napley have selected its client engagement solution. On the subject of partnerships, both of those wins are in conjunction with Introhive, which ensure that data is kept up to date automatically, including scraping email signatures.


Our law firm of the month is leading US defence law firm Cole, Scott & Kissane, which has selected Aderant Intelligence and become an early adopter of litigation platform Litify – one of the biggest tech investments ever made by the firm. See both of those win stories below.


And we have a jam-packed webinar schedule coming up – please take a look and register to join us. They include Automation Outcomes on 3 March at 4pm GMT, where Thompsons Solicitors head of IT and business process, Peter Kettleborough, will talk about the firm’s robotic process automation journey so far.


I will be in New York for LegalWeek so hoping to see some familiar faces there, drop me a line if you have any sessions or events you’d like me to come to.

I’ll also be speaking with JP Morgan and GitLab at DevOps London Conference 2022 on 2 March – our session is here – do pop in if you can!
