Why Choose Us
Many law firms have not reaped the benefits that technology could bring be it due to following poor advice or finding that promises made are not fulfilled. We often find IT projects have failed to live up to the expectations of the business stakeholders or that the day to day use of IT is detrimental to operational performance.
At Baskerville Drummond our focus is to ensure that :
IT is a business enabler rather than a barrier to success
IT strategy is aligned to & supports the business strategy
That all projects deliver the expected business improvements
“A DMS swap-out project is always going to be tough. Getting a project partner who has the right work ethic, technical expertise and management experience to complement the internal team’s ‘can do’ attitude was going to be essential."

“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”
Des Mannion, CEO Wilkin Chapman LLP
“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.”
