This is part of a wider business strategy that aims to place Tikit as the preferred IT and software strategic partner for law firms. Lloyd Ellison, Director of Sales, EMEA at Tikit said that Colin’s appointment “will certainly help retain and build upon Tikit’s focus on the legal sector.

Cloud, mobility, security, technology adoption and collaboration are becoming increasingly important to law firms productivity needs. Our experience in the sector, combined with the power of our own proprietary software and our partner solutions enables Tikit to bring it all together for our clients”.

Lloyd went on to say, “We will continue to invest in our products, in our partnerships and in our people so that our clients continue to receive an excellent service from Tikit. Colin brings a wealth of legal technology and professional services knowledge to the EMEA account management team. We are delighted to have Colin on board”.
