NEW YORK - JUNE 9, 2020 - Epiq, a global leader in the legal services industry, today announced that legal operations and spend management consultant Peter Eilhauer has come on board as the managing director for legal operations solutions.
Eilhauer brings more than 15 years of experience in spend and operations management. He joins Epiq from Elevate, where he was a managing director and co-founder of the company’s legal business solutions practice.
As the market leader in technology-enabled legal services, Epiq has deep expertise in helping law firms and legal teams transform their operations and is expanding further in this area. Last month, Ziad Mantoura joined as senior vice president and general manager for legal and consulting solutions from Axiom. Eilhauer will report to Mantoura and lead the company’s newly created legal operations solutions service line. Both Mantoura and Eilhauer are part of Epiq’s largest business, legal solutions.
“Market forces have accelerated the need for digital transformation for legal teams worldwide,” said Roger Pilc, president and general manager for legal solutions at Epiq. “We have built an outstanding team to help clients put the right processes, analytics, and technology in place to not just survive, but to thrive in a fast-changing world.”
Prior to Elevate, Eilhauer led vendor management and spend analytics at insurance company QBE, and before that, he was a manager at Huron Legal where he consulted for AmLaw 200 firms as well as large legal departments on spend management and technology strategy projects.
“Now, more than ever, legal departments will be asked to operate as more efficient and data-driven businesses. To begin this type of operation, while managing spend effectively, legal departments will need to apply technology-enabled solutions using the best technologies available,” said Peter Eilhauer. “The strong leadership team at Epiq, their heritage in client service, and their vision to partner with top tech providers is exciting to me. I look forward to helping the legal operations teams connect the dots in the legal ecosystem to deliver best in class solutions.”
Eilhauer will be based in Chicago.
