Hannah is responsible for the strategic direction and operational management of Deloitte Legal in the UK. Having joined the Deloitte Legal leadership team in Summer 2018, Hannah was central to Deloitte’s decision to acquire its ABS licence. Since Michael Castle’s appointment as Managing Partner earlier this year, Hannah has worked closely with Michael to develop Deloitte Legal’s strategy: combining market leading lawyers, consultants and technology experts to provide clients with new solutions to legal problems. She is responsible for managing day-to-day operations for the legal teams, and works closely with Bruce Braude (CTO) and Laura Bygrave (innovation lead) to drive new ways of working for Deloitte Legal practitioners, helping them address the ‘more for less challenge’ and make the most of market-leading technology. Hannah’s career started at Deloitte, initially as a strategy consultant to business services and professional services clients. Subsequently she used her skills ‘in house’, working to develop member firm and service line strategies in the UK and globally. Prior to moving into her current role, Hannah was Chief of Staff to the COO of Deloitte North West Europe, where she gained a wealth of experience of operational best practice.
