Hi, I'm Lucy Dickens

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

I’m the author of Amazon #1 best seller, It’s Time to Do Law Differently: How to reshape your firm and regain your life, where I share my six-step blueprint for transforming your law firm. 

I’m a lawyer, speaker, podcast host and mentor to law firms looking to move to a new and more relevant business model.

I was awarded The Law Society of Western Australia’s Lawyer of the Year Award in 2020 for my contribution to the legal profession, helping law firm owners and operators reshape their firms to keep pace with the changing economy.


Who am I?

Author, Podcast Host, Speaker, Lawyer

I’m a Director at Birman & Ride, a leading NewLaw firm in Perth, Western Australia, where I practice what I preach. I lead the development of the firm’s consumer legal services, bringing together people, technology and processes to design and deliver innovative legal services.

I host the Doing Law Differently podcast, where I interview leaders in law who are reinventing legal practice and regularly speak in professional circles about what it takes to run a successful modern law firm.

I also co-host The Juggle podcast, a podcast for professional women juggling the competing demands of work and family. Along with my co-founder, I regularly speak and consult to businesses about flexible work.

I use my blog to share my thoughts on all my favourite topics – legal innovation, leadership, flexible working and motherhood, to name a few.
