IT Director, Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP

Janet has worked in the board sphere of legal IT virtually all her working life – even her MBA speciality was ‘Competitive Advantage in the Legal Profession’.  After working in administration at A&O, Janet set up a specialist consultancy practice looking at technology services (in their widest sense) for legal firms.  She joined BLP about 16 years ago – initially as a consultant but later as their IT Director with a wide range of responsibilities.  She normally says ‘if it plugs into an electric socket and does not make coffee it belongs to me!’  She is responsible for technology in its broadest sense, including ecommerce activities, knowledge management services and the building and infrastructure.  In 2005 Janet won the BCS award for IT Director of the Year. The team have won many awards including Computing magazine’s Best Places to work in IT in 2007.  Janet won IT Director of the Year at the Lawyers awards in 2008 and at the 2009 Legal Technology Awards Janet won the City/national - IT Director of the Year. In 2011 she was given the award for the Greatest Contribution to Legal Technology. In 2013 she was listed as one of the 20 most influential IT Directors in legal technology in Europe. Janet established The Adelaide Group a women in business networking group in 1997 - the first speaker and honorary President is Cherie Blair.  The group now has over 1000 members and holds regular events listening to high profile women speakers. Janet is a member of the London First advisory board, and under their auspices also mentors a senior policeman.  She is Chairman of Governors  of a local preparatory school.  She is on the Board of Roehampton University.  She was the Regional Vice President of the International Legal Technology Association for the EMEA region and now sits on the global board.
