TromansConsulting provides strategy consulting services for law firms. I operate across the UK and globally. I am based in London. 

I advise management teams on areas such as: business expansion, merger and international development via new offices or networks, as well innovation and the adoption of new technology, such as AI, that has a strategic aspect. 

I have particular skills advising law firms on:

- Merger candidate analysis

- International network strategy

- Innovation development

Merger candidate analysis helps law firms better understand 'what is out there' and which firms may be a good fit to meet your strategic needs. 

International network strategy advice covers the central challenges that all referral networks face in keeping pace with the global legal market's ever-changing needs and the development of strategic plans for management teams.  

Innovation development focuses on helping lawyers to develop a 'Legal AI' strategy that is right for their business and that will integrate with other aspects of their broader strategic, business development and operational needs.
