London, UK–(BUSINESS WIRE) (January 5, 2016) – Axiom, a leading provider of technology-enabled legal services, today announced that Sara Morgan will assume the position of General Manager in London. In her new role, Morgan will spearhead Axiom’s further growth in the UK, where the firm helps clients develop innovative responses to the complex and rapidly evolving legal, regulatory and compliance landscape.
Since its inception in the UK a decade ago, when it pioneered the alternative legal provider concept, Axiom has been at the forefront of the ongoing modernisation of the UK legal industry. In addition to providing in-house clients with a high quality and cost effective alternative to law firms through its well-pedigreed lawyers, Axiom has developed a transformative approach to the traditional commercial contracts process. By leveraging IRIS, its proprietary technology, Axiom has revolutionised how companies create, execute and organise a staggering quantity of commercial contracts through the application of technology, data analytics and process expertise. This transformative approach to the contracting process enables clients to accelerate revenue and enhance transparency, while reducing risk, cost and cycle time.
“Through her work leading the financial services and enterprise business teams, Sara has played an integral part in Axiom’s UK growth, where the firm is the leading provider of commercial contracting and alternative legal services,” said Al Giles, EVP of Legal Services. “Equally important, she has been a vocal advocate for the modernisation of the legal industry, helping numerous companies transform their legal departments. We’re thrilled to announce Sara’s new role and even more thrilled to look forward to further growth in London under her leadership.”
Morgan brings to her new role over 6 years of experience within Axiom, successfully leading various business departments and spearheading key client engagements. She has been an instrumental leader both in retaining highly valued clients and developing new relationships with FTSE 100 companies that engage Axiom for matters ranging from large regulatory and M&A transactions to critical individual secondments.
“The Axiom I joined 6 years ago had a handful of lawyers and shared its office with another company,” said Morgan. “Fast forward to 2016, and the London-based office of Axiom is now the size of a fully-fledged law firm, comprising over 250 high quality lawyers. Equally important, Axiom’s capabilities extend well beyond the traditional law firm reach. Axiom has the expertise, resources and proprietary technology to tackle large scale M&A transactions and managed services work including end-to-end contracting engagements. I have been thrilled to be part of Axiom’s growth in the UK, but even more thrilled to have been on this journey of industry transformation. Now, as GM, I am excited to help write the next, and even more promising, chapter of industry and Axiom innovation.”
