Who am I?

Author, Podcast Host, Speaker, Lawyer

I’m a lawyer and legal innovator with over a decade of experience in law firm transformation.

I share pragmatic, actionable thought leadership designed to help law firm leaders to reinvent legal practice and ‘do law differently’.

my new book

It's Time To Do Law Differently

There’s a lot of talk about why the legal profession should change, but far less about how to actually do it. How do you take all the competing ideas and theories and translate them into a strategy for your firm?
This book shows you how.

Smaller law firm leaders by-and-large know they have to change the way they operate, what they need is the "how to". Lucy Dickens' six-step transformation process shows the way in plain language.
