Robert Johnson is the Managing Director of Onit in Europe, which, at its core, is a leading provider of enterprise legal management solutions.
Robert’s mission since his start at Onit has been to facilitate workflow and collaboration in legal, freeing up time to let legal teams focus on the work they truly love, and leaving the “boring stuff” to the tech, saving time and money.
As well as matter management and e-billing, Onit also provides contract lifecycle management solutions, helping clients manage everything around the lifecycle and workflow of their contracts.
Robert has been a consultant in the legal practice for the last 10 years, and joined Onit after proposing their European expansion to the CEO two years ago.
In this interview Robert describes the importance of maintaining a human side to law practice, and how technology can increase legal’s value, supporting the work they do. He emphasises the importance of keeping legal tech simple (an idea we wholly agree with!) and ensuring its accessibility and usability while maintaining its value as an ROI.
He also discusses the positive shift in legal teams that has recently taken place – how we are beginning to see different job positions emerge within legal, to reflect the value of operational processes.
Their Lean into Legal Ops Europe is Onit’s virtual program to keep customer and other members of the legal community connected, a particularly useful endeavour in these uncertain times.
