Syngenta Chooses Mitratech’s TeamConnect Solution for Legal Matter Management and Spend Management Needs

AUSTIN, Texas, January 6, 2015 – Mitratech, the leading provider of enterprise legal management (ELM) solutions, announced today that Syngenta, one of the largest agribusiness and biotechnology companies in the world, has chosen TeamConnect to handle its legal matter management and spend management needs. Syngenta ranked #420 on Forbes Global 2000 list in 2014 and was formed in 2000 by the merger of Novartis Agribusiness and Zeneca Agrochemicals. The company employs over 28,000 people in over 90 countries and is headquartered in Basel, Switzerland.

With almost 30 years of experience as the best-in-class provider of ELM solutions, including matter management, spend management, e-Billing contracts management, compliance solutions, and legal hold, Mitratech’s products are used by more than 25% of the Fortune 500 and 100% of the Am Law 200. Mitratech’s TeamConnect product was recently recognised as the highest-ranked integrated matter management and spend management solution in the industry by Hyperion Research.

“The legal and regulatory challenges facing global corporations continue to increase every year. We are honored that Syngenta has chosen TeamConnect to be the platform for the legal department’s technology needs in this increasingly complex environment,” said Mitratech CEO Jason Parkman. “We welcome Syngenta to our world-class client community of best-run legal departments and look forward to partnering for many years to come.”

Since establishing its UK office in June 2014, Mitratech has continued to see increasing demand for matter management and spend management solutions by European companies, especially those in highly regulated industries. Mitratech’s growing investment in the region has led to a doubling of its European-based client base just in the past quarter as TeamConnect is recognised as the premier solution for large European legal departments.
