Lights-On is an independent IT consultancy established in 2005 on the core principles of confidentiality, experience, independence, integrity, and deep knowledge.

We specialise in legal and professional services, working with clients that range from niche commercial practices through to global and magic circle clients. We are proud to say that we have been working with many of our clients for well over a decade.

Lights-On can help you to get the best out of the solutions you have or on new technologies that can future-proof your firm, drive efficiency and better position you to compete in your markets.

The majority of our IT consultants have held leadership positions in law firms and corporates as well as being experienced consultants – this combination of in-house management and independent consultancy allows us to provide insightful and supportive IT advisory services.

Whilst strategy is key to a successful IT project, there also needs to be a clear plan to communicate and implement the strategy. As such we look for both strategic and practical abilities in all our people and “strategic advice, practically delivered” has become a mantle for Lights-On and how we work.

From independent advice on a technology evaluation or procurement project, through to a strategic IT review or our ‘IT Director as a Service’ offering, our extensive experience across legal and professional services makes Lights-On the first choice for an ever growing number of firms.
