Envato legal team honoured

We’re proud of our legal eagles today!

The Envato legal team – Chaman Sidhu, Peter Tsipas and Sarah Davoren (pictured below) – have won the Organisational category in the 2015 Legal Innovation Index, awarded by LexisNexis® Pacific and Janders Dean.


The team, led by our Legal Director Chaman Sidhu, were the only non-law firm finalist in the organisation category.

They were acknowledged for their hard work managing the legal components of our global, digital marketplace; including transactional governance, intellectual property, licensing and other complex regulatory areas. It’s no small task keeping everything and everyone compliant, safe and thriving.

The judges noted our approach to “minimum viable product” legal solutions for an MVP product launch, our natural language approach to making legal terms understandable to millions of site users, and our agile workflow philosophies.

A big congratulations to all the other winners and our fellow finalists.

We believe in constantly innovating and challenging ourselves to work better and smarter, so it means a lot to be rewarded for our agile, innovative work in this area.
