Chris is Head of Legal Market Engagement at HSBC, responsible developing and implementing a next generation supplier, spend and relationship management framework. Chris has broad experience working across the legal industry with time spent in both private practice and in-house. The majority of his career has been focussed on legal operations, bringing efficiencies to traditional ways of working. Frustrated by the slow pace of change, in an industry which has been resistant to innovating, Chris has also worked with LawTech start ups, playing a role in building an ecosystem to support the next generation of legal services. He was responsible for building the LawTech community at Barclays Eagle Labs where he built a collaboration space for in-house teams, law firms and tech companies. He was also the Head of External Engagement for Barclays Legal. Chris has been featured in the FT Innovative Lawyers ‘Top 10 Intrepreneurs’ and appeared in the Legal 500 GC Powerlist (UK 2020 Change Agenda). Chris is also a member of the LawTech UK Panel.
