Leading attorney and e-discovery expert to bring “technology chops” to business of law
“We could not be more excited to have Matt Miller join us as a founding principal of Apogee Legal,” said Jim Wagner, Managing Director. “Matt is such a rare talent – he brings substantive expertise, a tremendous background in technology in the legal field, and a pragmatic approach to solving legal complexities as business problems.”
Prior to joining Apogee Legal, Miller was a senior vice president at DiscoverReady LLC, working in the field of electronic discovery as a senior relationship manager and as an expert in the field of predictive coding. While at DiscoverReady, Miller oversaw the management of petabytes of data, the implementation of analytics and predictive coding in connection with a number of landmark cases, and the review of hundreds of millions of documents for global enterprises in the financial services, energy, pharma and technology industries. Matt began his career as an intellectual property litigator at Womble Carlyle in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“I am very excited to be part of the founding team at Apogee Legal,” said Miller. “Having worked with Jim [Wagner] and Steve Harber in the past, I know that they are laser focused on eliminating waste in the business of law, a worldview that I share whole heartedly. Just in our start-up phase alone, we have demonstrated to our initial customers our ability to materially reduce costs by incorporating automation techniques into their day-to-day processes.”
Apogee Legal is a technology-enabled professional services organization delivering automation, process standardization and analytics to the legal, regulatory and compliance communities. In addition to Miller, the other founders of Apogee Legal include legal innovators and entrepreneurs, Jim Wagner and Steve Harber, and the principals of Bortstein Legal Group, Larry Bortstein and Beth Anisman.
“Matt is a tremendous resource,” said Beth Anisman, who formerly served as the CAO of the legal and compliance function at Lehman Brothers and the COO of Barclays’ US legal operations. “His insights, not only into the possibilities for automation in the business of law, but into the unique needs of the enterprise legal operation, will be invaluable to our clients.”
Miller will continue to be based in Charlotte, North Carolina, and will be responsible for managing Apogee Legal relationships throughout the United States.
