Simon solves your database headaches when you hear your law firm saying things like:

"We want to do CRM, but where do we start?"

"How do we combine all our lists and data into one?"

"We're fed up with our database not helping us do marketing better. Is it us, or it?"

"How do we get our database and emailing activities to comply with the looming GDPR?"

"We want to start regular emailings to clients and prospects, but don't have time. Can you do it?"
