Keeping the lights on but enhancing the offering – Getting the balance right

Our colleague Kevin Goosman’s article on Law Firm IT spend https://baskervilledrummond.com/law-firm-it-spend-getting-it-right/ was most timely, with a new budgeting cycle approaching. Getting the most out of your budget and controlling costs is fundamental, but given increasing pressure from your clients –…

“We needed to conduct an audit of the backend services and processes provided by our supplier. The supplier was un-cooperative and Kevin was met with much resistance.

Kevin’s perseverance and patience paid off and he was able to acquire the information needed for his report. In difficult circumstances, Kevin demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and commitment to achieve the desired outcome for his client. As a result of Kevin’s report we are better placed to manage the supplier.”

Kevin Goosman provided sensible and pragmatic advice and support for our IT function at a critical time for the firm as they moved to a new HQ – we greatly valued his contribution”

“David brought a cohesion to a project with many complexities. His calm manner meant that decisions were taken in a controlled and decisive fashion and he explained why (and why not!) things needed to happen (or should not happen) in a particular way and clearly, to non-technical lawyers. His involvement took away the day to day worries of what is an integral component of any transaction. In short David turned a major area of concern for the MAB project team into a cohesive understanding for all parties.

To be able to work on MAB LLP business until 2pm on Friday and then return to your desk on Monday and to then be able to logon to your new firm’s systems and start work is a testament to all the people involved but this could not have been done without David’s expertise.

To do this for one firm would have been good but to do it for three plus the staff remaining to administer the closure of MAB LLP is very impressive”
