Kalexius is ringing in the new year with the appointment of Nikki Rahimzadeh as Head of Consulting.
Nikki will oversee all law department management, legal operations and legal tech implementation consulting services.
A former practicing attorney and experienced consultant with law firm, government and in-house legal operations background, Nikki brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the Kalexius team. Her foundation is based on working in-house and as a consultant on strategic planning, financial planning and technology design and implementation for legal teams. She has expertise in the development of outside counsel management programs, building and executing strategic technology roadmaps, and building metrics and analytics programs for legal.
Using a people-centered approach that incorporates change enablement principles, Nikki is a leader in Legal Operations. Her experience includes working with US and ex-US-based global organizations to build and mature Legal Operations functions. She has a depth of experience working in highly-regulated industries, including life sciences, pharmaceutical, insurance and banking.
Kalexius Founder & CEO Nicolas Leroux comments:
“Kalexius is thrilled to have Nikki on board. Few people in the legal sector can boast such a diverse background, from law firms and ALSPs to corporate and public sector in-house teams. Thanks to her leadership skills and her far-reaching expertise in legal operations from both sides of the mirror, Nikki will be instrumental in delivering our legal department consulting strategy.”
Nikki Rahimzadeh adds:
“The hardest part of legal transformation is knowing where to start. Legal teams are increasingly looking for solutions to increase productivity and efficiency but are often overwhelmed by a lack of resources, time or knowledge. My new role with Kalexius is the best platform to help in-house teams navigate their legal transformation journeys and take their department to the next level. I am thrilled to begin this new chapter and to join such a diverse and multicultural team.”
The Kalexius Consulting Department covers law department management, legal operations, and legal tech implementation consulting services. Kalexius works with in-house teams to identify and address the underlying issues facing their department and proactively manage the legal function. The team partners with major legal tech providers to ensure a smooth implementation journey and maximize adoption down the line. Nikki’s scope is global, and she will operate out of the Chicago Kalexius offices, working in collaboration with the other Kalexius offices.
