“This joining of like-minded forces – Onit and PERSUIT – is highly energizing and exciting on so many levels,” commented Eric M. Elfman, Onit’s CEO and founder. “PERSUIT is our newest partner and that makes them a vital component of our Strategic Alliances Program. Onit’s customer base has grown exponentially in just the past year, and with that growth comes a diversity of client needs. I’m confident that the capabilities that PERSUIT brings to law firm selection will be welcomed by our client base and will provide an integrated, end-to-end solution for outside counsel selection and matter management.”
PERSUIT is an RFP and bidding platform that has the ability to integrate with an organization’s e-billing and matter management solutions, to drive efficiency and savings through “true market pricing,” while providing key data insights for decision-making. PERSUIT’s clients have realized 20-40% savings on outside counsel spend when using their technology. PERSUIT complements e-billing and matter management systems, which focus on monitoring spend during and at the end of a matter. PERSUIT’s design and technology significantly streamlines the process of seeking and reviewing proposals for legal services. The process of making increased competition easier also reduces the cost of services purchased.

PERSUIT™ is a Software as a Service (“SaaS”) company specializing in legal services sourcing technology. Founded in early 2016 by Jim Delkousis (a former BigLaw partner), PERSUIT was designed to be easy enough for in-house attorneys and law firms to use with little to no training. The tool is self-service enabled and is an out-of-the box, cloud-based software application, providing corporate law department attorneys the ability to launch Requests for Proposals (RFPs), Requests for Information (RFIs), Hourly Rate Information Requests, Panel Counsel Inquiries, and Alternative Fee Arrangements (AFAs). Each request type can be set up to drive price competition amongst participating law firms via a real time bidding event such that true market price is achieved. PERSUIT is reinventing the way companies engage with outside counsel with a mission to Kill the Bill(able) hour in favor of outcome and value-based fixed and certain pricing models.
