Lee to help fuel Case Status expansion across the legal industry
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — March 31, 2020 — Case Status, a client communications management and marketing platform for law firms, announced today that it has hired Keith Lee to be its Chief Marketing Officer. Lee will direct the company’s continued growth and expansion across the industry.
“I am excited to join a legal tech company that is building a new vertical in the legal technology space,” Lee says. “Unlike so many legal tech companies that only focus on the law firm, Case Status is built from the ground up to focus on clients and law firms. Now more than ever with the current corona crisis, law firms need the easiest and best way to keep their clients informed about their cases. And that’s Case Status.”
Lee brings a decade of experience in the legal industry and legal technology. He worked for years in small firm settings while simultaneously founding one of the most popular legal blogs, Associate’s Mind. Lee went on to become an author for the ABA, blogged for Above The Law, and eventually founded LawyerSmack, the leading private community for lawyers.
“We’re thrilled to have an industry veteran like Keith join our company” said Lauren Sturdivant, co-founder and CEO of Case Status. “Keith has been advising and consulting with us on our marketing efforts since last summer. We’re excited to finally have him with us full time as we continue with the rapid adoption of our client communications platform across the legal industry.”
Lee will be developing and implementing an overall corporate marketing strategy, directly engaging and managing the marketing team, and translating the company’s business objectives into marketing strategies that drive revenue. In addition, he will determine and administer the marketing budget, identify and track key metrics, and establish positioning for a wide range of Case Status products.
