IT Leadership On Demand
Lauwerys Technology specialises in Technology Consultancy, Interim IT Management and IT Leadership for law firms and other professional services businesses.
It is headed by Ian Lauwerys, who has held IT Director and other senior technology posts at world-class global firms and leading national practices for over 20 years, including Clyde & Co, Kennedys, and other well known names.
With extensive experience in change management, IT strategy and delivery of business-critical projects, we strive to be commercially aware and business-led. We believe the key to your success is building relationships with stakeholders and clients at board and partner level, as well as providing practical advice and assistance at all levels throughout your business.
We can help you to get the most out of technology no matter where you are in the process, be it defining your IT vision and strategy, selecting the right technology vendors and negotiating the best terms, recruiting or restructuring your IT team, delivering a high profile project or rescuing a failing one.
Whatever the challenge we can provide a safe pair of hands, taking care of your technology needs and enabling you to focus on managing your business and growing your clients.
We can help you create an IT strategy that supports your objectives, whether they are accelerated growth, improved lawyer efficiency, cost control or creating innovative solutions for clients. You will benefit from many years of practical experience in using technology to support and deliver B2C and B2B legal services across volume and high value practice areas.
2 Interim Management
With a wealth of IT management experience covering IT teams both small and large, we take on short term assignments filling gaps in your senior team and longer term engagements recruiting, coaching and mentoring the right people, planning for and implementing law-firm mergers and leading the delivery of major IT projects.
3 Technology Leadership
Our broad understanding of the complex interaction between people, processes and technology enables us to provide outstanding technology leadership. We can help you to get the most out of your IT spend, implement the latest innovations and enable your firm to navigate the fast-changing and competitive business landscape with confidence.
Working with your firm's leaders and clients to create an IT vision and strategy that fits your current and future objectives. "Technology for technology's sake" adds cost for little or no benefit. We can help you cut through the jargon and hype to focus on the things that will make a real difference.
Leading Complex Projects
Undertaking a large IT project or a portfolio of smaller interdependent ones without the right expertise is risky and can lead to expensive mistakes. You can rely on our track record of successful delivery to get you off to the right start, whether it is a single project or a multi-million pound global-scale programme of work.
The best technology in the world is of no use if it doesn't help your people do their jobs better. We can get existing and new systems working for you and get the IT team collaborating effectively with your partners, lawyers and business services staff for the benefit of the whole firm and its clients.
We can grow your IT team to meet new challenges or restructure an under-performing one. We have an proven expertise in building effective and efficient IT functions across all disciplines including applications & development, security, infrastructure, operations, service delivery & support and training.
Security & Compliance
The regulatory and risk landscape is becoming more complex and alarming day by day. You can rely on our deep understanding of the interaction between compliance, information security and technology to help you manage risk without getting in the way of running an efficient and agile firm that is responsive to client demands and commercial pressures.
Sometimes things go wrong, be that a major systems failure, a security breach or the sudden departure of a key member of the IT team. Whatever the emergency, you can rely on us to get a grip on the situation quickly, firefight the resulting problems and get you back to "business as usual" at the earliest possible opportunity.
