Mary Black – Partner, Currey & Co“In the space of two years NCCG has transformed our IT function, which we had previously managed ourselves. At the outset Neil and Clive helped us to prioritise projects and to organise our thinking about IT matters. Clive then devised a programme and worked tirelessly with us and our suppliers to enable us to reach our objectives. Clive has also arranged a competitive tendering exercise for our hardware provision and support and guided us in choosing a provider. With regular meetings and additional support whenever we need it we are making good progress towards achieving all our IT aims.”
Tony Woodhouse – Brethertons
“Neil Cameron Consulting Group were invaluable when they helped us procure a new Legal PMS system. Neil’s contacts were able to get us meetings with top level executives from Elite to discuss the roadmap for Elite and the FWBS and Pilgrim products they had just bought.”
“NCCG save us countless hours in our PMS procurement. They provided tender documents and the necessary expertise to compare the tender responses against each other and consolidate all the capabilities into overall strengths and weaknesses in different areas.”
“Clive from NCCG was fantastic in helping with our PMS procurement. His expertise at our demonstration meetings enabled him to ask the right incisive questions to distinguish the products. His expertise in project management and contract negotiation ensured that we got a contract which guaranteed the functionality and services most important to us at a great price.”
Simon Kosminsky – IT Director, King & Wood Mallesons SJ Berwin
“The Neil Cameron Consulting Group is definitely the place to go for objective, insightful and pragmatic advice on how technology can benefit a law firm”.
Andrew Keith – CEO, Deacons
“We undertook a Board session with Neil to further define and prioritise our business objectives for the IT Strategy. As facilitated by Neil, and informed by his experience of law firms, this proved to be an invaluable exercise – not just for the IT review, but also for the extent to which it added value to our business plan.”
Maurice Tunney – IT Director, Field Fisher
“Having worked with NCCG over the years I am always impressed with their knowledge of the industry as well as their understanding of what we are trying to achieve”
Bambos Georgiou – CEO, Mishcon de Reya
“Mishcon de Reya has been taking advice from Neil because he has a practical approach in combination with an understanding of the business issues and processes that will be fundamentally and irrevocably changed by these new systems. And we like him.”
Janet Day – IT Director, Berwin Leighton Paisner
“Neil and Jill were very pragmatic, user-friendly and helpful in helping us put together a definition of our business processes in one of our departments; and subsequently provided key assistance in preparing a business case for the project for the partnership.”
Ronnie Fox – Principal, Fox Lawyers
“Neil has a deep understanding of solicitors’ needs and is in a position to give truly independent, objective advice.”
Sam Airey – HR Director, Weightmans LLP
“I worked with Jill on the implementation of our HR system. She is a highly accomplished and professional project manager. She worked with us to keep our project on time, managed the relationship with our supplier and translated technical requirements into business terms and vice versa. She was a source of great support to me. I wholeheartedly recommend her.”
Stuart Whittle – IS & Operations Director, Weightmans LLP
“Jill has been invaluable in her project management of our roll out. She has worked well with all members of my department who have been involved in the project and with the supplier LexisNexis. The project has involved an exceedingly demanding time scale for the work involved and despite this Jill has kept us on track.
It’s refreshing to be able to discuss problems affecting the project whether these be from other areas of the project, or problems that my team are bringing, openly, knowing that rather than getting deeply concerned Jill will listen, keep a cool and professional head, calculate the impact on the project, and analyse the impact overall… then communicate the changes to everyone that needs to know them effectively.”
Kurt Farrar – Solutions Architect, Weightmans LLP
“I have every respect for Jill and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a project manager for any of your projects, regardless of the scale”
Patrick Gaul – Managing Partner, Weightmans LLP
“Weightmans took the decision to appoint Jill to be project leader once it became clear, towards the end of 2010 that the merger was likely to happen. The merger would probably have taken place without Jill but her leadership of the project has undoubtedly made it far more efficient. Results have exceeded expectations by a considerable margin. Through her leadership and her insistence on a proper, project managed approach we have dealt with issues, communicated appropriately, tackled problems with energy and commitment, and engendered a collective accountability for actions. There has over the last nine months or so been a true sense of purpose, a group dynamic and a sense of achievement. As a result we have gone a long way in terms of operations, finance, people, culture and technology and can honestly say that we have created one firm in a relatively short space of time.
All of us involved in the project have learned a lot from Jill. She has throughout maintained her sense of humour, her equilibrium, her drive and enthusiasm even when, as is inevitable, sometimes things do not go according to plan.
Had it not been for Jill our project would have produced far less satisfactory results. As it is we have already in a short space of time produced a platform that has put the new firm, in its much expanded form, in the best possible position to achieve its potential over the next three years”.
