This is episode 1 of Legal Tech Made Simple with Dom Burch, marketing director at SYKE.
In this episode Dom interviews Alistair Maiden, CEO & Founder of SYKE.
Alistair tells us how he got involved in legal tech, charting the history of his personal story of implementing contract management and automation at Asda, before setting up his consultancy.
As chief architect and legal engineer, Alistair has helped large law firms and corporates choose, buy and implement legal tech.
At Asda he brought together three inter-connected departments – legal, finance and procurement – to ensure they were working together and not competing with one another, or following different processes.
Since its start in 2016 as a one-man band, SYKE has grown to become the largest independent legal tech consultancy in the world, with 60 legal engineers operating across the globe.
The recent Covid-19 crisis has brought into sharp focus the need to work remotely, and use technology to stay connected and to simplify and speed up analogue processes.
SYKE is 100% remote-based, with no office. Which means it is perfectly placed to assist companies in this time. Be that analysing contracts, looking at force majeure or rights of termination.
Alistair believes law will never be the same again.
