HotDocs, Edinburgh & Utah-based document generation software company, just announced it has appointed Dave Lampert (pictured) as the President of its US Division. Lampert is tasked with building on the company’s previous successes and driving growth in its cloud offerings, including HotDocs Cloud Services, a hosted document-generation platform, Document Services, an SaaS application designed for small-to-medium-sized law offices, and HotDocs Market, the soon to be released marketplace for HotDocs-based legal documents. Lampert’s appointment was effective on July 16th, 2014.
Russell Shepherd, the UK-based Group CEO of HotDocs, commented, “I’m excited to welcome Dave to the HotDocs business, and I believe that his experience and leadership will be pivotal in continuing and accelerating our growth. The whole team is looking forward to working with him as we play our part in reshaping the legal technology landscape by extending our leadership in document automation and launching new legal publishing products and services.”
Lampert added, “I am thrilled to take on leadership of HotDocs US business. HotDocs has been leading the document automation market for years and has an incredible foundation to build on, including top-notch products, thousands of loyal customers and a great team. The next chapter of development as we roll out innovative cloud solutions should be even more exciting.”
Much of Lampert’s earlier career was spent at Wolters Kluwer, the Dutch-listed global information and software provider and CCH, a Wolters Kluwer subsidiary. Among Lampert’s achievements were the creation of CT CORSEARCH, the industry-leading, trademark searching, software, and services company, and the launch of CORSEARCH Advantage, a web-based trademark workflow tool for intellectual property professionals. Later, as CEO of Wolters Kluwer, Asia Pacific, Lampert led a team of 500+ personnel in seven countries and spearheaded the transformation of business from content to software and solutions. He also grew the CCH business in China by 400%, launched CCH India, and led the acquisition of several cloud software businesses.
