Baskerville Drummond Consulting

Baskerville Drummond is your leading independent legal IT consultancy, specialising in advising Law firms and Legal Technology solution providers.

We provide a full “end to end” service from Strategic Reviews, System & Vendor Selection to Implementation and Strategy Execution. Our unique approach enables us to fully support our clients through the whole strategic or project process and ensures we are fully accountable for the results.

We also are retained advisors for many of our clients and provide ad-hoc advisory support as well as long-term IT strategic advice and overseeing execution.

Our depth of IT knowledge and law firm experience along with our strong commitment to deliver the highest level of client service every time continues to result in strong advocacy amongst our clients. 

Many law firms have not reaped the benefits that technology could bring be it due to following poor advice or finding that promises made are not fulfilled. We often find IT projects have failed to live up to the expectations of the business stakeholders or that the day to day use of IT is detrimental to operational performance.

At Baskerville Drummond our focus is to ensure that 

  • IT is a business enabler rather than a barrier to success
  • IT strategy is aligned to & supports the business strategy
  • That all projects deliver the expected business improvements
