Simplex: Thrive Legal optimizes law department value and efficiency
Toronto, May 25, 2023 – Simplex Legal LLP (Simplex), a leading national Canadian firm known for its innovative and cost-effective legal solutions, has announced the launch of Simplex: Thrive Legal, an advisory service designed to help Canadian corporate law departments assess functional needs and to create a roadmap for prioritization and improvement.
“As the role of the modern law department continues to expand, legal leaders face an increasingly complex set of challenges that demand a new level of strategic insight and collaboration,” said Mark Le Blanc, a former General Counsel and experienced legal professional with a passion for delivering results that truly matter to clients.
“That's where Simplex: Thrive Legal comes in – a peer-to-peer advisory service, where our experienced team of former GCs, senior in-house counsel, and legal operations experts will provide support and assess functional needs to present a roadmap for prioritization and improvement,” Le Blanc said.
As a trusted legal services partner, the team at Simplex was quick to recognize the need to support law department leaders in developing and implementing legal strategies that align with the overall objectives of the organization.
“By taking a strategic and partnership driven approach, we can support our clients to align legal strategy with business goals. As a team of former GCs and senior members of corporate legal teams, we understand the challenges of this ever-expanding role,” Le Blanc added.
Le Blanc will lead Simplex: Thrive Legal and work alongside Martine Boucher, Chairwoman and Founding Partner of Simplex. Boucher started Simplex with a vision to innovate how legal services are delivered in Canada, and the team remains dedicated to its core principles, including delivering unparalleled client service in a practical, cost-effective, and flexible manner.
“Simplex has always been committed to pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the legal services industry," Boucher said. "With the launch of Simplex: Thrive Legal, we're taking that commitment to the next level. Our approach is simple – we partner with clients to build sustainable and effective legal functions that thrive long-term. We're excited to help our clients achieve greater success and realize their full potential with this groundbreaking new service.”
