In this episode, I interview Matt Peacock from OMC Partners. Matt specialises in improving legal operations, and has designed legal strategies and implemented a range of legal delivery models, leveraging his deep experience in legal process redesign, resourcing technology, risk management, and project management.
Matt explains the “eye-opening” value doing an MBA has brought to his understanding of change management and explains his reasoning for why we should drop the “legal” in legal tech.
He emphasises the importance of (a safe amount of) risk, emphasising that the best lawyers will mitigate risk in new opportunities but will not be afraid to embrace those opportunities because of the risk that accompanies them.
We discuss our shared links to Leeds, and how “North shoring” brings big opportunities for innovation.
Lastly, he speaks about his wish for more firms to pivot towards fixed-fee pricing for legal tech services, and the importance of letting people work in whichever manner works for them.
Tune in to hear more.
