Director, Advisory Consulting
John is a Director within Lighthouse’s Global Advisory Services team and Head of the Digital Transformation Practice. John brings more than twenty years of legal, regulatory, and consulting experience to this role, having advised organizations on an array of information governance, litigation readiness, and records and information management challenges, including those that involve the use and implementation of cloud technologies. A lawyer by training, John employs a methodical yet creative approach to problem-solving, taking time to understand unique aspects of the client’s landscape and account for each and every variable as part of a future solution.
For the past seven years, John has developed a niche practice in Microsoft 365 consulting and, specifically, advising clients on how to adopt and adapt M365 technologies to meet legal and compliance requirements.
John’s experience designing and implementing solutions that leverage and account for cloud technologies and changing behaviors has provided him with a unique perspective with which he now views digital transformation efforts. He is a leading authority in M365 implementation, and his focus is on designing solutions that are compliant, legally defensible, practical, and agile, so as to accommodate future change.
Prior to Lighthouse, John’s professional experience has included:
John has served as a consulting expert in connection with pending litigation matters, advising on risk and exposure related to technology and information and in advance of FRCP 26(f) conferences and FRCP 30(b)(6) depositions, and includes preparing other experts for testimony. Common topics include the configuration, operability, and use of specific systems.
John favors a digital whiteboard over other forms of notetaking; although he is not an artist, his whiteboarding sessions have often resulted in creative representations that mimic works of art. John has three grown children (and one grandchild), and he and his wife reside in Chicago.
