Morae Legal Expands its Compliance Solution, Adds Visionary Leadership...
“We are so pleased to welcome Jim, Heidi and the Aegis team into the Morae Legal family. Their vision for, and expertise in, compliance will help us continue to deliver on our mission of transforming the legal industry,” says Shahzad Bashir, Morae Legal’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have seen the role of compliance become an increasingly critical issue for chief compliance officers and general counsel, resulting in increasing demand for operational and consulting services. With proper implementation, compliance functions create protections both externally and internally that lead to a more efficient and effective legal department and better overall company risk management, and that is the purpose with which we serve our clients.”
AegisAdvantage executive leaders Ewing and Rudolph bring a combined 45 years of experience to Morae Legal as both consultants and in-house practitioners. “We are very excited to join forces with Morae Legal and bring together two best-in-class organizations,” says Ewing. “This venture is a win-win as it will advance the capabilities we offer our clients as well as extending our expertise and services to those working with Morae Legal. We look forward to expanding the Chicago footprint.”
