CEO and founder
Jim Delkousis is the CEO and founder of the futuristic platform, PERSUIT, that helps corporations automate legal workflows and inefficiencies by transforming ‘how’ in-house
legal departments engage outside counsel. The platform is designed for enterprise-wide collaboration between in-house attorneys, legal operations staff, and legal sourcing professionals, allowing customers to centralize engagements while providing oversight. This helps to reduce legal spend through competitive bidding while also streamlining the alternative fee agreement (AFA) and request for proposal (RFP) processes.
Prior to the launch of PERSUIT, Jim was a BigLaw partner for 17 years where he was privy to the inefficiencies in the way organizations engage and buy outside counsel services. Jim earned his J.D. at the University of Melbourne and a Masters of Law in Commercial Law at the University of London.
In the age of technology, where other departments and industries are using sophisticated tools and automated workflows, Jim couldn’t understand how the legal function was still stuck in manual processes and spreadsheets. Specifically, the way that companies had engaged their panel law firms would soon transform into the digital space to become centralized, streamlined, automated and data-driven.
