About Us

David KinnearThanks for stopping by and for your interest in what we’re doing. Let me explain a little.

The legal industry is embarked upon a decade of truly unprecedented change. Sound and visionary leadership – in all its many aspects – will be critical. High Performance Counsel provides a sounding board – for the many voices and perspectives that comprise the industry both now and in our collective future. It also serves as a leader-board – bringing into the spotlight those individuals, organizations and solutions that are leading the way and framing our future.

High Performance Counsel is a place to find authentic leadership on a range of issues, including that of leadership itself in a changing industry, a digital workplace and a global economy. We bring forward a rich and diverse tapestry of excellence – the practical, the philosophical, the technical and the visionary – so our readership, our industry and its many ultimate clients and customers are better informed and better served. We grow and learn together.

In such a busy industry it is all too easy for voices to be lost and positions to be misunderstood. In the quest for change, much new wisdom displaces conventional wisdom yet, perhaps, the combined wisdom is a better outcome. We all gain through discussion – a common sharing of thoughts, ideas, fears, ideals and opportunities. We gain through great leadership.

I invite you to enjoy the interviews, articles and white papers shared here – and the news we track. And if you would like to highlight your work, your technology or that of your organization – then do get in touch.

High Performance Counsel is for you. Welcome!
