Founder and CEO

Alistair founded SYKE in 2016 after developing a passion for legal technology in his role as ASDA’s Head of Contracts. During his time at ASDA Alistair designed and implemented a digital contracting tool called Delphi which helped to significantly reduce ASDA’s contract cycle. Alistair teaches legal technology at the University of Manchester.


“SYKE have proven to be a trusted and valuable partner in the hugely successful growth of DWF Draft which has only gone from strength to strength as a result of the genuine collaboration between the DWF team and Dave at SYKE. ”

“We were delighted with SYKE’s innovation and end results. Without their help it is doubtful that we would have been able to complete the project on time, and we would certainly have incurred very significant additional internal and external cost.
