Andrew became a legal engineer after realising technology has now reached a stage where considerable benefits can be gained by users and many of the frustrations facing those working in the legal and commercial sectors can be significantly reduced. Prior to joining SYKE, Andrew gained 10 years’ experience working in top-tier law firms in Yorkshire, primarily as a commercial property solicitor advising retailers, developers, investors, financial institutions and small businesses on all aspects of real estate law.
The “lightbulb moment” for Andrew came when he was in practice and built his own system from scratch for managing files and next steps in the legal process and accurately predicting monthly billing forecasts. This breakthrough was the catalyst for seeking out further innovative solutions and he now enjoys helping his clients to employ the latest technology and enhance their ways of working.
Andrew recognizes the challenges faced by the organisations he works with, having experienced these first-hand, and uses the latest technology to manage and develop artificial intelligence solutions for clients – saving time, reducing risk and lowering costs in the process
