After two years in the retail supply sector Robert returned to HGF in 1997 to take up a permanent position in IT. Over the subsequent years, as well as being responsible for the day today running of the IT infrastructure, he developed a bespoke case management system for use by the attorneys to help manage an ever increasing caseload. This system has continued to evolve to the point where it is now fully integrated with every part of the business including accounts, business development, management and client access.
Robert is an advocate of open source software and much of the infrastructure of the firm is based on the Linux platform. Linux is not the panacea for all IT requirements and where necessary Microsoft technology is deployed to keep a competitive advantage over other firms in the market place. Robert holds Chartered IT Professional status awarded by the British Computer Society. Only the BCS can award CITP status. CITP is seen as the bench mark of IT excellence within the profession. He has also been qualified as a Red Hat Certified Engineer since 2003.
