Mattersmith was designed by Andrew Scott. Andrew is as a leading IT, outsourcing and data protection lawyer. In a City career spanning over 25 years he has been involved in highly complex and, in some cases, ground-breaking transactions, from multi-jurisdictional outsourcings and systems implementations, to the sale and purchase of banks, third-party administrators, and platforms.

Over the last 12 years Andrew has been motivated by improving productivity in legal and contractual processes. As a senior law firm manager and a front-line lawyer, he has developed document automation solutions for his firm and clients. Now, Andrew is committed to supporting clients when advice matters and improving their operational risk management and efficiency through advanced technologies designed specifically to address the needs of practitioners.

According to the Legal 500, Andrew “attracts praise for his ‘firm yet pragmatic negotiations’ and for his expertise in outsourcing IT and telecoms procurement matters”. The Chambers UK Guide quotes one of Andrew’s clients as saying, “I have a high regard for his knowledge of outsourcing work and its complex regulatory requirements”.
