My first role in the legal IT sector was as a systems programmer for Allen & Overy in 1988, starting with IBM mainframe systems and moving on to UNIX.  In time, I built a Production Services team of c. 20 which had responsibility for the firm’s entire server and network infrastructure across all of its offices.  I then moved to Herbert Smith as Development Manager and built a team of a similar size which implemented document management, knowledge management, CRM, a number of Outlook-based desktops amongst others.  At Herbert Smith I created a Business Integration team to help the firm align IT more closely with the business it served – this was essentially internal consulting.

 

After more than 15 years in these firms, I took on the role of managing consulting teams in two legal-sector suppliers before founding 3Kites in June of 2006.  My objectives were two-fold: I wanted to build long term relationships with clients that were based on trust and delivering results and have the flexibility to spend time with a young family.  This policy has been core to the success of all our consultants who continue to provide excellent service to our more-than 70 law firm clients.

 

I initially specialised in document-based projects but have broadened my skills and experience with 3Kites to the point where I am able to guide firms on practice management, case and matter management, process and strategy.

My experience includes:

  • Interim IT management,

  • Assisting with innovation initiatives,

  • Product selection, especially of PMS, HR, case management and DMS platforms,

  • Process mapping,

  • Creating strategies, primarily for IT and including organisational change,

  • Intranet refreshes, including the delivery of KM and search functions.
