MSU Law grad joins UK-based law firm

Michigan State University Law graduate Brian C. Pike will join Riverview Law's North American team as the UK-based law firm continues its expansion into the United States legal market.

Opening this month, Riverview's New Jersey office will be close to its existing hub in Manhattan, as well as to the technology and entrepreneurial ecosystem surrounding Princeton University.

"With an increasing percentage of our revenues generated outside the UK and a growing U.S. customer base, we're investing heavily in expanding our stateside presence and market offerings," said Andy Daws, Riverview's VP North America. "Emerging technologies and next-gen automation are at the core of what we're doing here, and there are very few law schools producing graduates like Brian who truly understand and embrace that landscape."

Pike was a standout student at MSU Law, a finalist in the ReInvent Law Innovative Ideas Competition and the winner of the law college's very first social media contest. He is a certified civil and domestic mediator and a certified Lean design thinker. Pike landed the very first international internship with Riverview Law by tweeting about his interest in being an intern.

"Brian is an outstanding ambassador for MSU Law and LegalRnD," said Daniel W. Linna Jr., assistant dean for career development and director of LegalRnD The Center for Legal Services Innovation. "He excelled in the classroom with MSU Law's innovative curriculum to develop the 21st Century skills necessary for success in today's legal industry."

Pike joins Riverview as a knowledge automation architect, a new role reflecting the ease with which knowledge workers such as lawyers are able to use Riverview's proprietary technology platform to orchestrate and automate end-to-end processes and documents.

"Our licensed In-House Solutions platform puts control back into the hands of the legal department," added Daws. "Our platform enables lawyers to automate their own processes and provides real-time data and business insight to help customers make quicker and better decisions. Brian is an ideal candidate to join our pioneering efforts in this field."
