David has over 25 years’ experience in the legal industry with a focus on providing excellent client service and using technology in its widest sense to help law firms gain competitive advantage. This stems from his work experience and having degrees in both Computer Science and Law, being qualified as a solicitor in Scotland and obtaining an Executive MBA to develop better business insight.
Previous roles include Global IT Director at Watson Farley & Williams (WFW), a Top 30 international law firm, Head of Business Projects at Berwin Leighton Paisner and various business analyst roles at SJ Berwin and Lovell White Durrant. For David, IT should strike a balance between providing stable, reliable systems for the business and working on innovative solutions with the business. He recognises improvements in service can be found by working smarter with existing tools; introducing new solutions which are already available in the market; and looking to emerging technologies. David pursues this in his work and also promotes it as a Director of LITIG and when speaking at or contributing to legal and technology events.
