I pioneered “Process Engineering” 20 years ago. Process Engineering is a system of delivering legal services which are faster, better and lower cost, I based my ideas upon the principles of lean engineering. This approach has become favoured by in-house counsel and adopted by many leading law firms.
Outside the UK, I have extensive experience of working for US businesses operating outside the US including Fortune 500 companies. I have worked and travelled extensively in the US and I am a former Chairman of the British American Business Council – North West.
Chambers and Partners recognised me as a leader in my field. It calls me “straightforward and efficient”; “one of the best technical lawyers around”; “an excellent facilitator of clients’ needs”. It also notes that I impress with an “ethos of continuous improvement”.
