Thomas Haines graduated in computer science, going on to develop cameras for Nikon in London. He worked for Microsoft, then became a founding partner of patent firm Golja Haines & Friend after completing training in law. In order to access big data to grow his firm, Mr Haines designed and developed Filing Analytics, which collates global patent data. He founded tech company Practice Insight in 2009 to develop tools for the legal profession, combining his careers as an attorney and a software engineer. After acquisition of the IP legal software products by a dominant multinational in the space, Practice Insight is now focused on the commercialisation of a pioneering method of autonomous time and attention analytics, aiming to ease the burden of manual time keeping that currently pervades the professional services industry.
