Nearly a year after Lynne Zagami was laid off from Brown Rudnick, she’s back to work. After the third-year corporate associate was let go in a round of firings at the Boston-based firm last November, she spent 11 months scrambling to find a new job. (Zagami’s job search efforts were chronicled in a story in The American Lawyer‘s August issue and also in this video.)

On Monday, Zagami began her new job as the director of client strategic processes at Brightleaf Corp., a startup company based outside of Boston. Brightleaf’s six employees in Massachusetts and 30 employees in India are developing software to streamline document production in law firms and in-house legal departments.
