We want to help legal teams secure the human, material and technological resources they deserve, thanks to Legal Operations.

To give you the means to deliver the best possible quality of service. To help highlight the "invisible" work performed by your teams. To give you power and control over your processes. Here at Calame, we focus on people, process and technology — and always in that order. Everything we do is to make Legal shine.

What makes Calame special

Legal Operations is making substantial progress in France.

Before 2019, nobody was talking about it. Today, the range of services, solutions and job opportunities related to Legal Operations is growing progressively, alongside increasing demand from legal departments.

My name is Emilie Letocart-Calame and four years ago, I founded Calame — The Legal Ops Company.

Here, as the name of this page indicates, we won't be promising you miracles. Nor will we be selling you a story made out of whole cloth.

As you may have noticed—and people have been figuring this out on their own for a while now—there are two types of companies: those that make up a story in order to sell a service, and those whose authentic lived experience acts as their driving force and motivation.

Here at Calame, we are lucky enough to be in the second category. Our story sounds like yours. It is not a work of fiction. Just like us, it is genuine and authentic. We are former lawyers turned Legal Ops specialists. We have walked many a mile in your shoes. That's what makes the team at Calame so special.

We're a UFO in a galaxy full of large consulting firms and "independent" digital transformation consultants. It's not that we're an unidentified flying object from the viewpoint of legal teams, it's more that we are a flying object that chooses not to identify itself with the world of consulting. We have not adopted their codes of behavior and nor do we want to.

Where others cultivate short-term communication, complex terms, information retention and sweet-talking sales teams, at Calame, we are not afraid to go against the flow, and to develop a Give First culture based on sharing, at your service.

During my early days as an entrepreneur, I kept hearing that it was not possible, for economic reasons, to apply my values to my company on a daily basis.

To the contrary, I believe that one of the biggest advantages of being a business owner is being able to reconcile my values and my professional life. Because we are convinced that it is by exchanging, sharing and helping each other as Legal Ops that we will progress and develop skills that will allow us to make our teams shine.

If are still reading this message, it is probably speaking to you.

This is why I wanted to take the time to write to you—to tell you our story and explain how we see things [Soon⏳].
