Alex Hutchinson

Alex is a strategic IT specialist consultant with a wealth of experience and a sustained record of success within the legal and IT sectors. He is a freelancer IT Director who specifically works with law firms who do not want (or need) a full-time IT Director.

Working as an independent extension of a law firms senior management team, he provides the specialist resource required to resolve IT, software or supplier issues. He makes change happen, helping you make the right decisions, removing bottle necks for your fee earners and delivering a return from the investments you make in IT. A specialist who only helps law firms.

Alex understands the challenges that firms and individuals face on a day-to-day basis and helps and supports firms by taking ownership of the IT direction and strategy. Firms receive access to the skills required to fix a problem, or lead a project, in a temporary and economical manner. Meaning you do not need to employ a senior IT Person on a full-time basis.

He blends commercial awareness with a specific understanding of law firms, the challenges they face with IT, and how to solve them.
