Pinnacle, international legal technology and consulting business, announces its expansion into the APAC region with the ambition to make specialist, expert services and solutions accessible around the clock for global and regional law firm clients. The investment in growing Pinnacle’s presence in the region, where it already works with a number of firms, is marked by the hire of Scott Sonter, former Head of Finance Systems at Ashurst.
With over 20 years of domain experience in the legal sector, Scott Sonter joins Pinnacle as Principal Consultant – APAC. He says: “I spent a large part of my career in Australia and have first-hand experience of the limitations projects face because there aren’t highly skilled partners on the ground offering the range of solutions Pinnacle can provide. That is what makes me most excited about this expansion – it is an enabler for our existing clients and the region in general.”
Pinnacle is a highly regarded partner to law firms, delivering Elite, Intapp and Microsoft consultancy; legal-specific applications through its own suite of software products; and managed services for strategic business applications. Its continued growth over the years has been underpinned by strong strategic relationships with key vendors and a portfolio of offerings which evolves in line with client’s needs. Today, this makes Pinnacle the first port of call for many leading law firms who look to work with a single partner in all the different areas of their business, without compromising on the depth of expert knowledge brought to each individual system and its related processes.
Kevin Smith, Pinnacle’s CIO and Head of Managed Services says: “Building on Pinnacle’s growth in the US, UK, and Europe, establishing our presence in APAC with a local team completes the picture for our global clients, who need a partner with global reach. In the APAC region specifically, it also allows us to be the partner of choice for regional firms that have historically had to rely on out of time zone support, making project delivery a more demanding issue than it needed to be. Firms with APAC offices can now benefit from all of Pinnacle’s services and products being readily accessible. Scott’s experience and pragmatic approach make him the ideal person to lead our growth in the region.”
