TransPerfect Legal Solutions, a global provider of e-discovery and legal technology solutions for law firms and general counsel, today announced the hiring of Stefan Nigam as EMEA Director of Consulting and Information Governance.
Bringing extensive expertise to TransPerfect, Nigam’s background includes advising on UK and EU cross-border merger control and antitrust investigations while practicing at Allen & Overy, a global top 20 law firm.
Nigam was part of the Allen & Overy team acting to secure worldwide merger clearances for Refinitiv’s $27B acquisition by the London Stock Exchange Group, following Phase II investigations by the European Commission and the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore. He was also involved with the firm’s legal technology innovation hub, Fuse, where he worked on developing proprietary, client-facing technology to facilitate the merger control process.
Most recently, Nigam served as corporate counsel at global sports-betting technology provider Kambi, where he helped build the company’s legal and regulatory functions.
Based in TLS’s European headquarters in London, Nigam will take a leadership role in consulting law firms and corporate legal departments to develop technology-based solutions to improve day-to-day workflows and solve complex legal problems. While his focus will be on competition law matters, his skill set will significantly benefit other areas and practice groups.
Nigam stated, “TLS has an international reputation for best-in-class legal technology services and solutions. I’m excited to leverage my private practice and in-house legal experience to further benefit the company’s clients, particularly in the competition law space.”
TransPerfect President and CEO Phil Shawe commented, “With AI solutions taking on greater importance in the legal industry, it is an auspicious time for TransPerfect to welcome Stefan to the team. Antitrust is a data-intensive area—and our clients will greatly benefit from his expertise.”
