Sukesh developed a successful client-facing knowledge management strategy with specific innovative deliverables designed to re-define the legal service delivery model through the use of advanced forms of technology. Receiving this prestigious award is a collective effort of the global and Canadian knowledge management and library teams, with tremendous support from the IT team in Canada.
This award is highly competitive and had a strong list of applicants and finalists from firms and law departments in Canada, the US and around the world. Sukesh was the first-ever Canadian to receive the award.
