L1S_7536smallThanks for visiting my website.

I work as a Consultant to the legal profession and Mediator (Civil & Commercial) based in the London & Midlands area. My core areas of expertise are :

  • Mediations – civil and commercial disputes (settled over 1,500 cases during my professional career)
  • Strategic Advice/NED Role – Drawing on my experience to advise and assist the development of your firm
  • Consulting: How to improve how you run your business – Involving Review & Implementation of Improvements: preparation for Lexcel applications, process improvement, managing people, risk reduction – retained and project contracts
  • IT Projects –  business analysis, being the interface between users and IT on the planning, prep & roll-out of IT projects and installing and training on CMS systems (including LEAP where I have installed into and assisted over 200 firms)
  • Lexcel – assistance with your application – 2 phases to the project: a) assess where you are b) prep you for the application
  • Training & Retaining on the LEAP software – over 200 firms assisted so far and rising

I spent nearly 25 years working in the legal industry, 14 of which as an equity partner, I served as a Board member and ran a department of 60 staff. I have also worked in manufacturing, the green energy generation sector, launched an invention into the logistic industry and have also carried out managerial/consultancy work in the 3rd Sector. Since leaving private practice as a solicitor I have consulted into many businesses. I have assisted over 200 law firms and other businesses with new Case Management Systems, advice on strategy, improving efficiency, profitability, people management, compliance and generally in running their businesses (See the ‘Work History’ .)

I am passionate about making organisations work better. Although thinking and planning before you start on something is absolutely crucial, delivery is everything. What does one need : clear analysis, goal setting and management, investment in resources, which includes the skills of the people involved. Visit the ‘Project Summaries’ (drop down list above) for an idea of some of the projects on which I have worked.  Mediation fits well into this ethos as unresolved disputes hinder the efficient transaction of commerce.

I would be delighted to talk with you if you are interested in hiring me to assist you/your organisation. I work on a retainer or one off project basis.

Please ring or e-mail me. The details are at the top of each page.       
I look forward to hearing from you.
