“I’d recommend any firm embarking on a business transformational IT project to engage with CMA. In my experience their exceptional skills and knowledge underwrote the project and ensured the best possible outcome. What is more the calmness and confidence they instilled in us all made the journey a pleasant one.” Walter Cha, CH4 Consulting
“CMA has been a huge support and critical in helping us deliver our new Peppermint project in less than 10 weeks. Yes that’s right, there was only 10 weeks from our kick off meeting to Go Live!
This provides us with a significant business advantage in 2018 and Peppermint now becomes our platform for future growth. We could have debated, consulted and even argued amongst ourselves for another 6 months if you were not able to cut through all this and keep us focused on the main points; guiding us and helping us to understand how we could revisit a number of lesser objectives in the weeks after Go Live. We are now in a much stronger position as a business thanks to you.” Jon Chappell, COO, National Legal Service
“You were calm and reassuring throughout the Peppermint project and delivered an outcome towards the very top end in terms of possible outcomes.” Andrew Clinton, Managing Partner, asb law
“When faced with the replacement of our existing practice management software CMA were an obvious choice to help us find the right solution and manage its implementation. We feel the resulting Peppermint implementation project is safe in their hands. The key to these projects is confidence and CMA are able to translate technical issues into plain English that our board can readily understand and buy into.
For us it was always going to be extensive change on the one hand and risk on the other and CMA have certainly helped our firm to find the right balance. I have no hesitation in recommending CMA as a trusted advisor.” Nick Lakhani, Finance Director, asb law
“I have worked with Colin over the past 10 years in my capacity as Chief Executive of 3 South East Regional Law firms, one where Colin was retained as an outsourced IT director and 2 where Colin supplied ad hoc IT Consultancy Services. During this time I have found Colin to be completely reliable with the ability to explain technical IT issues in plain language. If you want to migrate to the Cloud or change your practice management system I would strongly recommend that you speak with Colin as he helped me enormously with these substantial projects.
Colin brings an air of commerciality to discussions about IT, is able to explain IT in simple terms and is extremely transparent with his own charges. I’ve found Colin to be a great source of support and it’s been a pleasure to work with him.” Ian Hopkins, Chief Executive, B.P. Collins
“My firm have engaged Colin as its IT Consultant for the last 5 years. His assistance has been invaluable. We would not hesitate to recommend him.” Peter Doyle, Senior Partner, Doyle Clayton
“I have used Colin’s services for many years and I have met no one in the legal IT industry that has anything like his level of knowledge. What makes Colin unique though is his ability to devise an IT strategy that makes commercial sense. Colin simply strips away the mystery of IT and turns it into something that partners and senior managers can understand. What’s more, his project management expertise and ability to deliver the strategy stand out in an industry where IT almost invariably falls short of expectations. I’d personally never accept advice from anyone else.” Jeremy Ward, Chief Executive, Warners Solicitors
“I have worked with Colin in the area of IT for 25 years. During this time, Colin has specialised in the legal industry and is very well-regarded by me and many others. He is one of the few people who fully understands all the IT complexities and yet who can sit down with someone who is not so IT literate and explain things in an understandable fashion. Owing to his substantial sector expertise in the legal industry, Colin understands the commerciality of law firms and the fact that Managing Partners and CEO’s want to simplify IT.” Ian Mouland, Director, Mouland Mann
“I would highly recommend Colin and CMA. He was different from other consultants we spoke with when considering replacement of our practice management system. He took the time to understand our business; he was inquiring, sensitive and commercial. When making his recommendations, he demonstrated a good knowledge of our firm, our systems, our people and our culture. Putting that together with his extensive knowledge of the market, the systems and the suppliers, he was able to present well thought through and relevant options to our Board and our partners and they had confidence in him. He worked well with third parties on our behalf and really was one of the team.” Vicky Brackett, CEO of Business Legal Services, Irwin Mitchell
