Reynen Court hires leading Scottish firm’s innovation head as ‘ecosystem strategist’

Moore joins Reynen Court from Burness Paull, one of the largest law firms in Scotland, where he led the innovation function for nearly five years after having practised as a solicitor. He also sits on the Advisory Board of Lawscot Tech (the Law Society of Scotland’s innovation and legal technology campaign) and is a senior tutor at Glasgow University School of Law, where he teaches the legal innovation & technology module of the Diploma in Scots Law that he co-created.

“Sam is a rare breed,” said Christian Lang, chief strategy officer at Reynen Court. “Not only is he a passionate legal innovator with a significant track record of thought leadership and hands-on experience implementing some of the best tech in the market, but he can draw on a wealth of diverse experience (a computer-science background, biglaw legal practice, service as a front-line legal technologist, and–finally–responsibility for managing a law firm innovation function) to serve our platform users and technology vendors.  It’s a perfect combination of skills and experience to add to our team as we work to deeply understanding the unmet technology needs of firms and in-house departments and then source, shepherd, and champion the technologies that can help them drive meaningful change. We’re very excited to welcome Sam to the Reynen Court family.”

Moore said: “I have gone through the pain of sourcing new technologies for firms, testing their security, reviewing compliancy, negotiating with tech vendors, deploying applications and then finding out after nine months that we picked the wrong one so we could start all over again,” says Samuel Moore. “Reynen Court is striving to become the new normal in legal technology, offering vendors a standardized deployment pathway, which makes it a fast, easy and frictionless experience for firms and legal departments to try and buy the technology they need, at the moment of need. I am super excited to be part of a company that has the potential to truly transform the legal industry for the benefit of firms, their clients, the vendor community and society. With the unique support of twenty leading global firms, I’m confident the Reynen Court team is on the path to creating an extraordinary company.”
