    Introducing Eversheds Sutherland’s new Contentious Legal Project Management and Technology team

    Eversheds Sutherland has today announced the launch of Propel, its newly combined litigation technology and legal project management team to provide clients with an end-to-end legal and technology experience.

    Propel will be led by partners Nick Rundle and Sarah Jones and is formed by Eversheds Sutherland’s established litigation technology team which is joined by the newly formed legal project management team. The decision to bring the established Litigation Technology Team and the newly launched global Legal Project Management Team together into one new structure, forming Propel, was a natural one due to the synergies in the work done by both teams.

    Propel will share knowledge and resources effectively to meet clients’ differing disputes needs; from using technology to facilitate and improve processes, to creating bespoke activity and status reports. The combined team ensures clients benefit from the efficiencies and value which technology and legal project management can bring to the disputes process. Clients will also profit from pooled resources between the teams being shared more effectively across different jurisdictions.

    The new unit is currently over 10-strong, and growing, with new appointments expected in the coming months. It will work alongside Paul Worth, Co-Head of Global Litigation, to continue to drive the Litigation and Dispute Management group’s objective to deliver its services to its clients in the best, most innovative and most effective way.

    Enzo Lisciotto, Head of Litigation Technology, will remain responsible for existing technology products and services being made available to as many clients in different markets across Eversheds Sutherland’s international network.

    Senior Legal Project Managers, James Barrett and Katherine Storrar, will promote Eversheds Sutherland’s growing legal project management offering in Europe and the Middle East, respectively, with a specific focus on litigation and disputes matters.

    Kurtis Windrow, a recently appointed legal technologist, will work as part of the Propel team to continue to explore and develop new innovative litigation technology to assist in the delivery of disputes and litigation projects.

    Paul Worth, said:

    Propel is going to transform the way clients engage with our team on complex disputes and litigation matters. We found clients were looking for more streamlined ways of conducting disputes, had differing demands of our litigation technology, and all had unique legal reporting requirements. Our solution was to bring our technology and project management teams together to ensure clients have ready access to our best people and ensure their end-to-end experience is as streamlined as possible.”

    “In my view, Propel is standout compared to our competitors as we’ve combined the experience of technologists who get law, and lawyers who really understand the technology. This proposition guarantees our technology and legal project management offering is continually evolving to meet ever-changing client requirements.”
