Neil Davison is to join Macfarlanes as CTO on 22 June. He joins the firm from a very brief stint at Ascertus, and was previously IT Director at Farrer and Co. The move follows news that Macfarlanes has selected Aderant as their practice management system. Commenting on the move, Davison said: “I am delighted to be joining Macfarlanes at such an exciting time. I am looking forward to working closely with Andrew, the team and the wider business on the next stage of the firm’s technology development.”

Macfarlanes’ CIO, Andrew Powell, added: “I am really pleased to welcome Neil into Macfarlanes‘ IT Team. Lockdown has very clearly demonstrated the importance of high quality IT services to the firm and also the progress we have made with agile working in recent years. We have an ambitious programme of work ahead of us and adding Neil’s broad experience to the team will help us keep up the momentum across a wide range of projects.”
