Weightmans: using technology to provide innovative solutions

Through its product and innovation department, people-focused law firm Weightmans is combining legal expertise with emerging technology solutions

An award-winning top 40 UK law firm, Weightmans has more than 1,400 people working from offices in Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Newcastle.

Stuart Whittle, Chief Technology and Innovation Officer at Weightmans – where he began his legal career almost 30 years ago – is particularly aware of how innovative technology can be utilised to gain insights and enable clients to reach their true potential.

A qualified solicitor and board member of the firm since 2010, Whittle’s current role means he is accountable for Weightmans’ information systems department, data services department, and its business change and knowledge management department, along with its formative product and innovation department.

“What makes us different is our people,” he explains. “Our clients say we're an easy firm to do business with. Every law firm says this, but there really is a focus on delivering the best results for clients.

“Ultimately, we want to be a top 30 law firm,” Whittle adds. “Clients are at the heart of everything we do, and we aspire to be technology-driven, data-led, and innovative. And that's where the product and innovation department came from.”
