Konexo has enhanced its legal technology and consulting offering for clients with the appointment of Jessica Burdon as principal technology consultant.

Jessica, who joins Konexo from PwC, brings more than a decade of legal technology and consultancy experience. She has spearheaded major digital transformation, contract lifecycle management, process mapping, generative AI and change management projects.

Her role at Konexo will involve consulting on and implementing the most effective AI and technology solutions to solve client issues by working closely with clients’ legal, procurement, risk and compliance and finance departments.

Having qualified as a lawyer in Australia, Jessica gained six years of experience in private practice at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in London and New York, before moving into technology and consulting. Following a period at Ashurst, Jessica returned to Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer to launch the firm’s innovation and technology offering.

Babar Hayat, Head of Technology and Transformation, Konexo, commented:

“Jessica is a fantastic addition to Konexo’s expanding legal technology and consultancy offering. Our clients are turning to us to lead them through the uncertainty and complexity of the current landscape.  We’re undertaking more influential work for clients, particularly in leading them from the beginning of their transformation journeys. Jessica is a valuable part of guiding clients through that process.”

Jessica Burdon, Principal Technology Consultant, Konexo, commented:

"I’m looking forward to working with the legal technology and consulting team at Konexo. It is clear that Konexo has a unique proposition within the market through its close collaboration with Eversheds Sutherland and the notable talent in its team. Being able to work where consultancy, technology and law are realising their potential was a real appeal for me and I’m very much looking forward to getting started.”

Jessica’s arrival follows recent appointments made by Konexo including Sophie Espinasse as Head of Client Learning, Erin Gavin as a director in the financial crime team and Karen Briggs as a Strategic Adviser.
