If anyone was wondering whether ALSPs are worried about firms stepping into their space, Michael Callier has some insight: They’re not. As Factor’s new vice president, head of solutions and consultations, Callier has years of experience in various components of the legal industry.

In the past, he’s witnessed up close the evolving efficiency demands for GCs as corporate counsel at Darigold Inc. and Nike Inc. and led innovation at Davis Wright Tremaine. Now, after co-founding legal operations and leadership consulting provider Pivot Legal Solutions, Callier joins Factor. Callier explained that in his new role he will consult with clients to discover opportunities, insights and needs that can be resolved with the client’s current resources or with Factor’s assistance.
