Novartis and The Cincinnati Insurance Company were recognized for their innovative use of enterprise legal management
The winners of Wolters Kluwer ELM Solutions’ sixth annual Legal Innovator Awards were announced earlier this month during the ELM Amplify 2022 user conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. ELM Solutions clients Novartis and The Cincinnati Insurance Company were honored for their commitment to innovation in the pursuit of more efficient and predictable legal services.
The annual Legal Innovator Awards recognize ELM Solutions clients who have successfully leveraged technology to transform legal operations. Novartis is a leading global medicines company, using innovative science and digital technologies to create transformative treatments in areas of great medical need. The company worked with a cross-functional ELM Solutions team to configure Passport to support an improved invoice review process and enhanced relationships with outside counsel. This resulted in greater efficiency while also promoting case management techniques internally.
The Cincinnati Insurance Company is a recognized leader in the property and casualty (P&C) and life insurance industry. The organization – and its in-house Legal Resource Control Unit (LRCU) – was recognized for its Passport implementation project, which enhanced its legal bill review and reporting capabilities, while also developing a robust scorecard for use in outside counsel performance reviews. Additionally, the project enabled more efficient reporting capabilities and the ability to provide other business partners with valuable data.
“We are gratified to be able to recognize these clients for the tremendous spirit of innovation and partnership they have brought to the legal operations function,” said Barry Ader, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Wolters Kluwer ELM Solutions. “Their innovative use of the Passport solution demonstrates the power of technology to transform the way that corporate legal departments are doing business, yielding new efficiencies and additional insights into outside counsel relationships.”
