Sarah Barrett-Vane. Legal Operations and Legal Procurement. 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, alternative legal services providers and legal technology companies, including:
- in-house legal operations
- legal technology solutions development
- legal procurement and panel reviews – public and private sector
- legal technology implementation and process improvements for in-house teams
- bid support and bid writing for legal services providers
I held the position of Director of Legal Operations at Royal Mail plc from 2012 to 2018, 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.
