Several weeks ago I was saddened to learn that Dean Sonderegger  was recently named Senior Vice President & General Manager, Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting Canada and Research & Learning U.S. Sonderegger will be a hard act to follow. During his tenure at Legal & Regulatory he drove efforts to enhance the premium practice content by embedding workflow and insight solutions. He orchestrated the sunsetting of Intelliconnect so that WK could focus its talent and energy on Innovation in the Cheetah (now VitalLaw)  platform which replaced it. He drove initiatives developing new tools for drafting, analytics and insights and explored alignments with a variety of innovative legal tech companies. An alliance with KM Standards resulted in the launch of  M & A Analytics. He also drove the integration of Capital Markets data into RBSource. Sonderegger raised Wolters Klwuer’s profile as a player in the legal tech market and was a regular commentator and panelist at National events such as Legal Tech, ILTA and the AALL Annual Conference.

Let’s hope he  can engage with the law librarian and KM community at the AALL Annual Meeting in Denver. I can’t think of a better place to soak up the expertise and perspectives of the legal information community.

Here is the press release from Wolters Kluwer:

In March 2021 they launched ALN Cloud which offers an integrated cloud and mobile litigation experience. The ALN Cloud offers a simpler and
