Legalweek Recognizes the Company’s Achievements Following the Launch of New Features and Expansion to Legal Operations Professionals
NEW YORK, NY February XX, 2024 – Priori, the leading legal technology platform for outside counsel decision-making, was proud to be recognized in the 2024 Legalweek Leaders in Tech Law Awards for the second year running. Priori received the “Legal Operations” award for its impact in the space last year, including opening its legal marketplace to legal operations professionals and expanding the types of providers users can engage through Priori.
This award follows the company’s win last year in the “New Law Company of the Year” category and its launch last week of new RFP, reviews and scorecarding features for Priori users, which enable legal operations practitioners to better manage outside counsel spending.
“The role of the legal department is rapidly evolving and legal operations professionals are the cornerstone of that evolution,” commented Basha Rubin, CEO and Co-Founder of Priori. “This recognition underscores the investments that we have made in the legal operations space, from opening our marketplace to legal ops to building tools that enable teams to drive more value with outside counsel decision-making.”
Being awarded for excellence in legal operations marks another milestone for Priori after a series of important events throughout 2023, beginning with the company’s win in last year’s Leaders in Tech Law Awards. These milestones included:
Launching the company’s inaugural Customer Advisory Board with members from Adidas, Google, Hearst, Intel, Marsh McLennan, Mastercard, Meta, Orrick, PNC, Vonage and Zimmer Biomet
Expanding the Priori Marketplace network further to include legal operations professionals in addition to attorneys, ALSPs and other “New Law” companies
