Steve Sumner


I am the IT Director at Taylor Vinters, an international law firm with offices in London, Singapore and Cambridge, focusing on technology, investment and private client, it is a professional and progressive firm with the key attributes of being flexible, approachable and quick to respond.

I have worked in the Legal Sector since 1990 and with Taylor Vinters since 1995. A key part of my role is aligning technology to the business growth and as IT Director I have responsibility to set out the technology roadmaps to deliver the highest service provision for all systems and especially the business-critical ones. We now have technology implemented to enable teams to work without paper and away from the office and outside of the traditional working day.

We have been using IAAS, SAAS and Cloud technology in an outsourced managed services environment for over five years now, bringing to the firm an excellent level of resilience and performance whilst maintaining a responsive and ITIL standards based improvement model that meets the business requirements that an expanding global law firm requires.

Currently we are working on deploying desktop applications to the mobile environment including systems for time recording, expense management, digital dictation, document management and enterprise messaging.
