BCLP Cubed has hired Gowling WLG’s respected head of architecture and innovation Jody Jansen. Jansen will join the homegrown ALSP as its chief technology officer.
You’ll recall that BCLP Cubed is the firm’s new service for high-volume, business-as-usual legal work, which formally launched today (24 September). The initiative brings together some 150 people across the global firm for the first time.
The ambition is to provide clients with a one-stop-shop for their high-volume work integrated with complex advice and legal operations support.
Jansen said of BCLP Cubed: “It is an exciting new concept that will deliver significant benefits for clients and establishing a state-of-the-art technology platform on which to operate will be critical to its success. There’s already been a huge amount of progress in developing the new approach and I look forward to working with the team to maintain the momentum they have created.”
Senior partner Neville Eisenberg added: “The hiring of Jody Jansen as the chief technology officer is very exciting and we anticipate further hires in the near future. Jody brings with him a wealth of experience and will help lead the team as we continue to develop new solutions to meet our clients’ legal and business needs.”
Gowling WLG’s IT director Tony McKenna said: “Jody has had a great two years with Gowling WLG and we wish him well as he takes the next logical step in his career.”
