The delivery of legal services is an intense business. Demands on law firm leaders are myriad and varied. It’s rare to find a law firm that has dedicated roles or extra capacity for implementing major change. I have been working with all types of UK law firms, Partners/Boards, and IT, HR, and legal teams for 20+ years. I help law firms with specific projects or support a firm or it’s board over the long term as a trusted advisor.

The type of projects spans:

  • System Selection, or guidance with the process and suppliers
    • HR
    • Practice Management
    • Case Management
  • Departmental and business unit reviews
  • Project Management and Board/SMT support
  • Sales and Marketing projects
  • General strategy and connections
  • Extensive knowledge of UK legal software and services suppliers

My career in the legal sector began in 2001 working in the leading practice and case management suppliers Axxia and Visualfiles of the time. My role was with large law firms to help them get the best use of the technology to support growth strategies and risk management. Then within FTSE 100 owned LexisNexis for a number of years in sales management and technology strategy after the acquisition of Axxia. I was one of three Executive Directors at property and private client legal workflow company, Ochresoft, from 2012-2015 running sales, marketing, training, and projects.

Before establishing Verdigris Consulting in 2017, I held the role of European Consulting Director at BT Tikit running the large law technical, project office, and training teams delivering Carpe Diem time recording, iManage, and NetDocuments projects.

I am familiar with many practice, case management, and now HR systems, time recording, document management, cloud-based software/hosting jargon, and tactical outsourcing options in general.

I gained an MBA from Henley Business School, finishing in 2016. The research element focussed on motivational psychology and engagement of employees, particularly applied to business system design.
