Legal Futures Associate DAS Group has announced the appointment of Paul Timmins as chief operating officer (COO).

The role of COO is a newly created position within the group and is tasked with a wide range of responsibilities to meet the requirement that the operations of the fast-growing nature of the group respond to the ever-increasing needs of the market. 

DAS Group chief executive Paul Asplin said: “The creation of this very senior position is a reflection on the remarkable growth that the group has achieved over the years.

“Paul will be working directly with me in a number of areas, especially those related to new projects. The high level nature of this appointment has meant that Paul has also been appointed to the board as a director.”

Paul Timmins joined DAS in 2008 as head of compliance and risk management, later becoming head of risk and HR.

Mr Timmins said: “I’m delighted to be the first COO of the DAS Group and am already working on very interesting projects that will aid our continued strong growth.”

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
