Olly is a qualified lawyer in New Zealand and the UK, with 26 years’ experience in commercial and finance law. He has worked in the city of London for 22 years at various institutions, both in private practice and in-house, and most recently has been at UBS since 2012. Over an inglorious career Olly has been involved in a number of successful initiatives to modernise legal practice, both involving information technology (i.e. machines) and legal technology (i.e. words), and suspects that most of the real impediments to progress are human and not technological. In his spare time, Olly plays and writes about cricket, runs a contrarian blog and disingenuously wishes he had pursued a music career, safe in the financial comfort and security that comes from not having done so.
