Sarah Barrett-Vane. Legal Management Consultancy. Freelance/Interim Legal Operations Consultant and Bid Writer.
I provide consultancy services and interim assignments for in-house legal departments, law firms and alternative legal services providers, including:
- in-house legal operations
- legal procurement and panel reviews – public and private sector
- legal technology implementation and process improvements
- law firm bid support and bid writing
I held the position of Director of Legal Operations at Royal Mail plc from 2012 to 2017, working as a freelance contractor in my spare time. I left Royal Mail on 31/12/17 to pursue freelance/interim work on a full-time basis.
I qualified as a lawyer and worked in private practice before moving in-house, where I held positions in both the private and public sector. In 2005 I moved sideways into legal procurement and, from there, into legal operations.
This broad range of experience means I am well-positioned to advise both in-house legal teams and law firms on operational aspects of their practice and procurement work.
I work with in-house legal teams, law firms and other legal services providers, helping them to understand each other’s needs and work together more successfully and collaboratively. Review our Services for more detail on how I could work with your organisation.
