Feit Consulting, Inc. a premier legal information services consultancy, is pleased to welcome Katie Leonard as Vice President, Information Management Services. Katie brings an impressive 20+ years of expertise as a legal information services professional with experience at both law firms and law firm vendors, including Thomson Reuters. Katie will lead Feit Consulting’s Contemporary Library Solutions initiatives.
With a significant portion of the law firm professional workforce distributed in various work-from-home scenarios, law firms have an opportunity to restructure operations. Firms are searching for advice on how best to optimize services and minimize costs for the “New Normal.”
Law librarians require expertise and industry-wide insights to guide their decision-making during these operational restructurings. Feit Consulting is uniquely positioned to provide unbiased advising to information professionals to assist them in understanding the value of their department and services to serve the firm’s evolving needs, including ways to migrate to fully digital collections in the most cost-effective manner, and how to strategically review the market for outsourced services to supplement in-house skillsets as needed.
With a strong background in workflow automation, spend management, data analytics and user experience, Katie’s background is perfectly attuned to the needs of firms navigating these complex situations. Katie has proven herself to be a trusted partner to help firms as they modernize their library and information workflow operations to run more efficiently and maximize ROI.
Katie comments, “I am delighted to be joining Feit and to support law firm librarians’ needs for market data and strategic decision-making. The way information is consumed continues to evolve, bringing with it both challenges and opportunities. Feit has the expertise, knowledge and insight to advise librarians in this dynamic market.”
President of Feit Consulting, Michael Feit, adds, “We are thrilled to bring on someone of Katie’s caliber to lead our library solutions initiatives. Right now, firms are under stress with an urgent mandate to restructure operations. Librarians need a data-driven business plan to help them successfully navigate their firm’s unique information needs in both the short and long terms—and we know that Katie’s leadership and insights will be invaluable towards that end.”
