Facilitated by Robyna May | Practice Manager | Estate First Lawyers

Robyna has always been fascinated by the intersection between law and IT, with degrees in both. She has worked as a software developer, a project manager, an IT manager, a Knowledge director, a social media manager, a consultant and is presently Practice Manager at Estate First Lawyers. Throughout her career she has used technology and solid project management skills to solve complex legal problems. Her motto is “the answer is yes” and her coding experience has allowed her to develop solutions to seemingly impossible problems. Over her seventeen years in the industry she has seen the role of the in-house technology team change drastically. Whereas once the IT team was doing a good job if no-one spoke ill about them, now they need to be at the forefront of a firms’ innovation strategy. Technology moved from a back-office cost through to an opportunity for differentiation. Now it lies the foundation for the creation of diverse income streams and closer relationships with clients and business partners. As an early adopter of social media and the editor of a successful parenting blog, she has coached lawyers in their social media branding and how to leverage social media for closer relationships with clients. Robyna lives in Brisbane with a family full of men (including the dog). She once tried to give up coffee. It did not end well.


The  firms most able to succeed in the modern marketplace are client driven and approach the delivery of legal services with creativity. For those rms, technology is an enabler rather than a driving force.

Our panel of legal industry disruptors, share their experiences in pursuing legal practice in innovative and exciting ways that set them apart from their competitors – without requiring millions in their technology budget.

Be inspired by their affordable, practical and achievable approach to harnessing technology for innovation and learn how to deploy their strategies at your firm.
