A partner in the Toronto office of Stikeman Elliott LLP, I am responsible for the strategic direction of knowledge management in our office, leading the firm's knowledge management initiatives, spearheading programs to capture and leverage the firm's intellectual capital and working with practising lawyers on innovative approaches to delivering legal services to clients. I also work closely with other senior management on strategic initiatives around legal project management, pricing and fee arrangements.
In this role, I lead the development and enhancement of the firm's extensive precedent, legal resources and client facing collections, ensuring that these materials are cutting edge and reflect the latest developments in the law and business practices. I oversee the selection and implementation of technology tools used to put actionable knowledge in the hands of our lawyers and clients (such as our enterprise search platform STELLA KM), spearhead pilots of innovative and emerging technologies to improve the practice of law and delivery of services, and lead aspects of the firm’s data and information management. I also consult with clients on their own knowledge management initiatives.
