Fireman & Company Announces Three New Hires

Fireman & Company prides ourselves in bringing experienced, turnkey leadership to every project.  Having the voice of our clients is important, as a result, we look for team members who not only have legal experience but have worked inside law firms.

In support of the dynamic growth of Fireman & Company, we are pleased to announce three new senior team members joining us.  These team members bring deep legal domain expertise and decades of combined experience to Fireman & Company.

Data Practice Group Leader
William Smith 

As part of the evolution of our data practice, we’d like to introduce our new Data Practice Group Leader, William Smith.  William has almost 20 years of experience working in data management, data governance, data science, and CRM. He has honed his skills at Fortune 500 corporations and in the Am Law 100, including 7 years in the legal industry at Ballard Spahr and Walkers leading their CRM and other marketing technologies.  William also teaches graduate classes in data and decision science at Saint Joseph’s University Haub School of Business.  

“William brings a unique blend of hands-on technical experience, business acumen, and data science that is very unique in the legal industry.  People in this space either lack the technical skills or context around how our clients can leverage data as a business asset.  William is positioned to take our data practice to the next level.”

Business Consultant, Intranets & MS Teams
Debbie Minto

Our industry-leading intranet and MS Teams practices have experienced unparalleled growth.  To support these dynamic practices, we are thrilled to announce that Debbie Minto has joined Fireman & Company as a Senior Business Consultant.  Debbie has over 22 years of experience as a business consultant, including the last 8 years in the legal industry at King & Spalding, where she led the design of client-facing systems, internal systems, custom web design projects in SharePoint, managing data analysis projects, providing support for in-house applications, and driving the firm’s MS Teams implementation.

“Debbie is an amazing talent.  Her experience both in and outside of legal will be a tremendous asset.  I was blown away by her work product, attention to detail and I am particularly keen to leverage her experience with MS Teams.”

Jim Tuvell, Fireman & Company Intranet Practice Group Leader

Technical Consultant, Enterprise Search
David James

Overwhelming demand on our industry-leading enterprise search practice has led us to bring in David James as a Technical Consultant.  David has spent his entire career in the legal industry and has led some of the largest enterprise search projects in the industry.  Prior to joining Fireman & Company, David was with HBR in their enterprise search team and prior to that spent 25 years in the legal industry at Irell & Manella.

Eric Anderson, Fireman & Company Enterprise Search Practice Group Leader:

“David is one of the few legal enterprise search experts in the world, and we are thrilled he’s joined Fireman & Company.  His technical expertise, coupled with his experience working in, and for, law firms is unparalleled.  David is a great teammate and he is adding exponentially to Fireman & Company.  We are learning a lot from each other.”
