    Supporting real estate clients through innovation and technology

    Eversheds Sutherland has appointed its first two dedicated legal technologists within its Real Estate practice group.

    Mark Collins and Kate Perevoshchikova join the firm to drive the use of technology and other innovative solutions across the real estate practice.

    Mark and Kate are both qualified lawyers, and are Eversheds Sutherland’s first technologists with the sole focus on delivering automation and technology in real estate matters. Both will work together to help deliver client service excellence across relationship management, project management, collaboration and task-focussed technology solutions across the real estate practice.

    David Watkins, Co-Head of Global Real Estate and Planning, commented:

    “Innovation is absolutely central to our global strategy. Mark and Kate’s appointments ensure that our global commitment is matched at a practice group level; they will drive innovation and promote technology to develop creative client solutions, something which is still a relatively novel offering within real estate law.”

    Geraint Pullin Thomas, Partner, also said:

    “Following our successful launch of REFocus, we wanted to continue that growth by bringing two technologists into the team. Mark and Kate are qualified lawyers, something which was important to us as we wanted a team of lawyers who understand technology and how it can be applied effectively during the life-cycle of a real estate matter.”

    Mark Collins, Senior Legal Technologist, also commented:

    “This is an exciting time for legal technology, whether it be existing tech or new tech. What is clear is that Eversheds Sutherland’s Real Estate practice has a clear desire to get the most out of innovation and technology. This could be via automation, greater client collaboration, data analytics or machine learning. I look forward to helping the practice extract tangible value from its technological investment.”

    Mark joins from Herbert Smith Freehills where he was Global Head of Knowledge Management. Mark has a wealth of experience in reviewing and implementing IT systems to help with service delivery, including AI products and document automation.

    Kate arrives from Luminance Technologies where she was responsible for a number of machine-learning projects and helped drive clients’ adoption of AI technology.
