Helen Gazzi: Legal Geek of the Week

Legal Geek of the Week: Jason Housden, Matrix Chambers

Matrix Chambers Practice Director Jason Housden is a confessed ‘tech champion’ – the sort who promotes and advocates the use of technology, not the sort with world-beating programming skills; “I’m no Steve Jobs” Jason is keen to point out – but he’s also a natural tech historian and by the time Legal Geek’s interview with […]

Legal Geek of the Week – James Dawson, DealScoper

One of the key factors that motivated DealScoper Head of Content, James Dawson, to leave his partnership with Macfarlanes and enter the legal tech space, was a nagging question, “If not now, then when?” Dawson answered that question one year ago this month and judging by the excitement with which he is demonstrating DealScoper’s web-based […]

Legal Geek of the Week – Data Solver

Until this week, the Legal Geek team have been busy preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation by knitting ourselves thick woolly pullovers ahead of the nuclear winter which will accompany GDPR’s introduction on 25th May next year. It was therefore a bitter sweet experience – particularly as our pullover had reached well beyond the […]
