Deloitte has bolstered its contract lifecycle management capability with the hire of Teju Deshpande, CEO and founder of Oya Solutions, who joins Deloitte’s Legal Business Services team alongside a number of other as yet unnamed Oya employees.
Prior to Oya Solutions, which she founded in February 2019, Deshpande was at Morae Global, an alternative legal services provider, where we’re told she built and led the CLM technology consulting practice.
“Our research indicates that increasing digitization of contract management is a high priority for most organizations, said Mark Ross, principal, Legal Business Services, Deloitte Tax LLP. “Our clients are embracing the need to better understand how contracts are managed, with a true appreciation of data’s power. However, they need help in assessing, and reengineering end-to-end CLM processes, as well as identifying and implementing enabling technologies. Teju and the Oya team’s arrival at Deloitte further accelerates our ability to support our clients’ contract management transformation efforts.”
