TomBaldwinHeadshotThe US legal sector management consultancy Fireman & Co just announced that law firm knowledge management specialist Tom Baldwin is joining them. Baldwin has served as CIO or CKO for leading AmLaw 100 firms Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft, Reed Smith, and Sheppard Mullin. As the latest member of the Fireman brigade, he will lead KM, pricing, legal project management and process improvement engagements.

Baldwin comments “I retained Fireman at Cadwalader and Reed Smith and have always been impressed by their industry expertise as well as their ability to deliver. They understand lawyers and the management ‘IQ’ they bring to law firm engagements is unique. I admire Fireman & Company’s professional ethics and their corporate culture. Most of all, this is a company that has attracted and retained a team of unbelievably smart, accomplished professionals – I’m excited about the ways we can innovate together.”

Baldwin will begin work from New York City as of March 7th and plans a move back to California this summer to help bolster the Fireman & Company’s West Coast presence.
