Partner, Knowledge Management, Stikeman Elliott LLP
A partner in the Toronto office of Stikeman Elliott LLP, I am responsible for the strategic direction of knowledge management and innovation - leading the firm's KM initiatives, spearheading programs to capture and leverage the firm's intellectual capital and working with practising lawyers on innovative approaches to delivering legal services to clients. In this role, I oversee the selection and implementation of technology tools used to put actionable knowledge in the hands of our lawyers and clients and spearhead pilots of innovative and emerging technologies to improve the practice of law and the delivery of services. I work with clients on their own knowledge management initiatives and develop solutions together using a blend of legal knowledge, technology expertise, process improvement and project implementation experience. I lead the development of our extensive precedent, legal resources and client facing collections and work with other senior leaders in the firm on a number of strategic initiatives around legal project management, pricing and fee arrangements and data and information management.
