Co-Founder & Chief Strategy Officer at LexFusion

My day job is market listening and community building. At LexFusion, I help law departments and law firms identify and integrate innovative offerings that enable them to meet the needs of business at scale and pace. Ping me for a chat.

I am a long-time evangelist focused on the multi-disciplinary delivery of legal services—how we leverage legal expertise through process and technology. I’ve been a Biglaw litigator, in-house counsel, and legal operations consultant, as well as one of the architects of the biggest (and best) legal project management team in the world. I am a legal tech founder twice over now. I’m also a writer, blogger, and speechifier about the present/future of the legal market with Unless You Ask, a guidebook I wrote for the Association of Corporate Counsel, being my most prominent contribution to the discourse (well, that, or my series on legal marketing bullshit :-).
