Women of Legal Tech: Haley Altman
How did you become involved in legal tech?
I started creating products within the law firm to enhance my relationships with clients and grow my book of business. I focused on finding ways to innovate the way we delivered legal services to our clients. Through that process, I started to see opportunities for improvement in other areas. Working with startup clients also made me realize how much value technology provided and how we could apply it to solve our own problems.
What projects have you been focused on recently?
In 2016, I left partnership at Ice Miller to create Doxly, a legal transaction management platform that helps attorneys get deals done. Recently, I have been focusing on creating products that improve attorney/client relationships. To accomplish this, I spend a lot of time concentrating on motivating our team, helping customers achieve business objectives, establishing meaningful partnerships and Doxly’s credibility in the marketplace. Over the past year and a half, our customers have closed transactions with an aggregate value of over $2 billion.
Is there a legal tech resource of any kind that you find yourself returning to or that was particularly formative for you?
We are constantly turning to content created by Zach Abramowitz, Co-Founder and CEO of ReplyAll and Columnist for Above the Law and Bob Ambrogi, Lawyer, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of LexBlog. I find how they highlight key issues, legal technology innovations, pain points, and opportunities extremely valuable.
