LOD – Lawyers On Demand has seen enormous change in the past year, with Sandra Gibson,Australian Managing Director being at the forefront of these exciting changes.
The first cross-continent merger between NewLaw providers, LOD (UK) and AdventBalance (APAC) started trading globally as LOD in October 2016, creating one of the world’s largest flexible legal service providers with over 600 lawyers and consultants in 8 locations worldwide.
Sandra was instrumental to the merger, the seamless transition between the two businesses and its overall success. She has also been key in driving a number of initiatives across the Australian business.
Within weeks of completing the merger Sandra led the collaboration with DLA Piper by launching the flexible resourcing capability in Australia. This arrangement allows DLA to bypass the need to build their own flexible lawyer business by outsourcing the requirements to LOD.
Constantly assessing the market and ensuring we remain innovative and responsive, Sandra rolled out our ‘On Call’ offering in Australia, allowing a much broader range of solutions for our clients and lawyers.
She also led a team in creating our hugely successful In-House Legal Women Of Influence Program. A forum for women in senior in-house legal roles to share ideas, issues and solutions to the challenges of working as an in-house lawyer.
Sandra contributes thought leadership pieces, adding value to lawyers and clients alike across a range of topics.
Under Sandra’s leadership, LOD’s Australian business continues to be successful and seen as a catalyst for change in the legal industry.
