JUNE 29, 2018 PROFESSIONAL ANNOUNCEMENTS xlv
After almost 20 years in the
legal technology industry, it is
with mixed emotions that we say
goodbye to Karen Brookman,
VP of Services at Ricoh Canada and
former Co-founder and President
of Commonwealth Legal Inc.
Before joining Ricoh Canada,
Karen was a successful entrepreneur
who co-founded Commonwealth
Legal in 2000. Under Karen’s
leadership, the company grew from
a Toronto-based start-up, to an
industry-leading, national electronic
evidence management and cloud
In 2014, Commonwealth Legal was acquired by Ricoh Canada. After the
acquisition, Karen took on a number of strategic initiatives in Ricoh, and
was eventually appointed the VP of Services where she brought a unique
entrepreneurial perspective and made substantial contributions to the
advancement of Ricoh’s National Services strategy and growth of the business.
Today, a significant amount of work has been done to grow Ricoh’s Services
business, including advancing the company’s eDiscovery and Information
Governance offerings. The newly formed Legal Services organization is
launching a series of innovative, new technologies and offerings as part of
Ricoh’s broader digital transformation portfolio.
Karen’s passion, dedication, and contributions both within Ricoh and for
organizations such as Women of Influence, have had a profound effect on
many of us as individuals, and on our industry as a whole.
As Karen embarks on a new chapter in her life, please join us in extending
our very best wishes to her and her family.
“The measure of success is more
valid when it originates from
within you, rather than when it
is determined by external factors
beyond your control.”
– Karen Brookman
The Discovery Continues
for Karen Brookman.
