As Operations Director at Moore Legal Technology, I'm responsible for ensuring that all of our law firm customers succeed as a result of the efforts we make with their online business generation strategies. After qualifying as a solicitor with leading UK commercial law firm Maclay Murray & Spens LLP I joined Moore Legal Technology and since then have loved working with our growing team defining and implementing our development methodology.

When I was qualifying as a Solicitor, I established a legal blogging service to help lawyers and legal professionals from around the world publish and share their legal knowledge and news within law blogs ('blawgs') more effectively and to get found online. I also tutored private law, was a moot judge at the University of Glasgow and also tutored commercial law at Strathclyde University.
