“A recognition of the strategic importance of technology” – Foot Anstey’s IT director Duncan Eadie promoted to equity partner

Duncan

In a move said to recognise the strategic importance of technology within the firm, Foot Anstey’s IT director Duncan Eadie has been promoted to equity partner after a rigorous selection process.

The 200-lawyer firm, which became an alternative business structure (ABS) in April last year, has 47 partners, of which all are equity partners.

Foot Anstey has invested a seven figure sum on technology during the last two years and in October 2013 signed up for three major Thomson Reuters Elite (TRE) solutions: its flagship financial system 3E, matter management system MatterSphere and legal process management application Engage, the latter of which was this year sunsetted by TRE but will be maintained until 2017.

Ediscovery Comment: IT Offers Key Considerations for Corporate Legal Teams to Effectively Bring Ediscovery Inhouse + 6 point checklist

comment

Unfortunately, while bringing e-discovery in-house sounds like a good idea, many organizations have learned the hard way that it’s not nearly that simple. In fact, many companies have failed at such efforts because traditional on-premise e-discovery solutions turn out to be complex to implement and woefully hard to use and maintain. Worse, they are often not designed specifically for legal teams. Organizations aspire to bring e-discovery in-house, imagining they can put easy-to-use tools in the hands of the people who are most knowledgeable about a case. However, when the software is so complex that it requires technical staff to successfully operate it, it often undermines the original goals of improving efficiency and empowering the legal team.

Guest post: Understanding the needs of in-house counsel

CiaranLinkedIn

If you sell products or services to in-house counsel, as I do, you need to understand their needs – how they think and feel. After many years working with them I have come to three conclusions: firstly, they think a lot but eschew feelings; secondly, they believe they are different to other leaders in the business, because they are; finally, their value, more so than private practice, is in direct proportion to the extent to which they exploit their opportunity to have perfect knowledge of their businesses. I explained these points in depth in a speech I gave to the Association of Corporate Counsel’s Europe Conference earlier this year called ‘General Counsel: reluctant business unit leaders?’

Concealing data breaches is not a zero risk strategy – how the hacking threat can be countered through collaboration

comment

Many law firms have put considerable resources into cyber security – sometimes in the wake of a breach – while others appear to remain unaware of the scale of the threat posed by attackers. However, the legal sector has a significant role to play in the wider fight against cyber crime, and a cohesive approach is needed to counter the threat. Cyber attacks are the defining threat of the connected age, with lawyers facing heightened risk due to the treasure trove of information they hold.

Comment: BYOD and Surviving an Insecure Cyber Workforce

comment

Employee behaviour is one of the biggest risks facing IT security in the legal sector today. The enormous uptake of the Internet of Things (IOT), wearable technology, Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) and office-based cloud applications have created many potential vulnerabilities in legal firms’ IT security. Ensuring that employees use this technology securely must therefore be a top priority for legal firms when implementing and reviewing their security procedures.

“I’m convinced that we have to look for what comes after email” – DLA Piper rolls out internal ‘Twitter for enterprise’

email-or-e-mail-1243632-639x481 (1)

In an idea that has yet to be fully embraced by its staff, DLA Piper has introduced its own internal Twitter for enterprise called Grapevine.

Using Greets instead of Tweets, Grapevine is an open security model which is being used to send messages; spread news, information and know-how across the firm; and send automated messages to update fee-earners on areas such as matter status and bill payments.
