It's not always about technology...
it's about looking at things differently
"There are few professionals in Foley (and yes, I include all of our attorneys in that definition) who have impacted what we have done, and what we will continue to do, for our clients, more than you, and your technology team. You (and under your leadership, your team) have literally transformed Technology from a cost center, and historically a nuisance to many of our attorneys, to a real competitive advantage to Foley, contributing not just to revenues and profits, but also to achievement of our strategic plans."
