Conveyancing industry expert, Rob Gurney, has been appointed as managing director of Ochresoft – the legal workflow software specialist for conveyancing and private client lawyers.
Rob, who is a qualified property lawyer with 23-years of industry experience, joins Ochresoft from Premier Property Lawyers – the largest residential conveyancer in the UK – where he developed the business over the last 18 years and most recently held the role of Head of Legal Practice.
In addition, Rob held a non-executive membership of the Council of Licenced Conveyancers (CLC) for nine years and is currently a member of the CLC’s Professional Reference Group, as well as a member of the Transaction Reform Working Group for the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA).
As Ochresoft’s managing director, Rob is responsible for delivering the overall business strategy, with a focus on further expanding the market reach of its flagship case management workflow solution, Intelliworks. As a Landmark Information Group business, Rob is reporting to the Group’s CEO, Simon Brown.
Talking about his appointment, Rob Gurney said, “As a licensed conveyancer, one of my fascinations has always been with the use of technology in legal practice. I have been involved in a government-funded study into the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning and believe technology provides the key to unlocking further efficiencies in the industry, by supporting lawyers in their roles. I am therefore excited to join Ochresoft, with its dedicated workflows and Landmark’s backing, as it is in a great position to support the industry as it continues to evolve, with technology at its side.”
Adds Simon Brown, CEO of Landmark Information Group: “Rob is a great addition to our team; with his extensive knowledge of the market, he will focus on increasing Ochresoft’s industry footprint by increasing the use of Intelliworks across the legal profession. Ochresoft is known for developing workflow management systems by lawyers, for lawyers – and this will continue guided by Rob’s significant experience.”
