Litera will announce today (12 June) the appointment of Doxly-founder Haley Altman to global director of business development and strategy. In her new and significantly enlarged role, Altman, who since selling Doxly to Litera last year has held the role of general manager of transaction management, will focus on expanding customer development opportunities and helping to define and execute the strategic vision of the company.

Avaneesh Marwaha, Litera CEO said, “Haley has demonstrated leadership qualities above and beyond her position and her extensive experience as an entrepreneur and former lawyer is indispensable. We’re excited that her expanded role allows her greater focus on engaging directly with our customers and the legal industry.”

Altman said, “I’m thrilled to move into this role. During my time here, I’ve become very passionate about how the Litera products can really improve how legal teams work and look forward to deepening my understanding of our customers’ needs so we can continue to evolve Litera’s product suite, including evaluating acquisition targets. I’m also excited to help expand our presence in the legal industry and how we engage with the market.”

Altman will continue to engage the legal community through Litera’s virtual conference, The Changing Lawyer LIVE!, and other industry events and conferences. She will next present at iManage ConnectLive’s virtual conference on June 23-24, and at Legal Geek’s online conference with Litera evangelist, Alma Asay, on June 23.

Prior to founding Doxly, which underpins Litera Transact, Altman was a law firm partner: she served as a member of Ice Miller’s finance committee and co-led its venture capital vertical.
