With the use of data and technology increasingly central to a law firm’s success, the contribution of the individuals leading multi-million pound tech teams has never been greater. Meet the IT heads and chief information officers that stand out from the crowd.
From law firm partners to former data analysts at banks, the individuals who control the deployment of IT and knowledge management (KM) resources at some of the UK’s top-performing law firms are a diverse breed. Some, such as Sheila Doyle at Norton Rose Fulbright, entered the legal industry relatively recently after distinguished careers at some of the world’s largest companies. Others, like Julie Berry at RPC, became one of the earliest adopters of the systems manager role at a law firm, building up the knowledge and experience to become one of the most effective operators in legal tech.
