Deloitte continues to grow its Legal Business Services unit with the addition of longtime New Law innovator Teju Deshpande and a team from her contract life cycle management startup, Oya Solutions.

The 15-month-old unit is Deloitte’s bid to make a splash in the alternative legal service provider space, and it has prioritized contract lifecycle management from the start, along with offerings including e-discovery and data governance. The Big Four firm is bringing aboard the entire team from Oya, which it described as “scores of professionals,” in a move it categorized as a “group hire” rather than an acquisition.
