The “3 pieces of advice” series is a collection of brief 5-minute slots created as a platform for legal professionals to share work and life advice with their peers.
In this latest video, 3Kites consultants Paul Longhurst and Giles Pemberton share their top tips for procuring a contract management and legal ops software: “Sometimes it can feel rather overwhelming when you consider the amount of information you receive from legal software providers; they all claim to have the answers to your problems”.
About the authors:
Paul Longhurst, Consultant, 3Kites
Paul spent his first fifteen years in the legal IT sector initially as a systems programmer for Allen & Overy and then with Herbert Smith where he built a team of 20 individuals which implemented document management, knowledge management, CRM, a number of Outlook-based desktops amongst others. He then created a Business Integration team to help the firm align IT more closely with the business it served. He founded 3Kites in June of 2006. His objectives were two-fold: to build long term relationships with clients that were based on trust and delivering results and have the flexibility to spend time with a young family. He initially specialised in document-based projects but has broadened his skills and experience with 3Kites to the point where I am able to guide firms on practice management, case and matter management, process and strategy.
