The COVID-19 pandemic didn’t mean an end to business as usual for Webber Wentzel—one of South Africa’s “big five” firms. I spoke to Warren Hero, chief information officer and chief digital officer at the company, about how Webber Wentzel used technology to thrive in the pandemic and the road ahead for the organisation. This article, based on an episode of the Workday Podcast, also appears in smartCIO magazine

Could you start by giving us an overview of Webber Wentzel and your role within the company?

I’ve been in technology all my working life, primarily in financial services. I was with Microsoft earlier in my career and joined Webber Wentzel, where my role is CIO and CDO. Webber Wentzel is a premium, full-service law firm, and our focus is dealing with legal matters for our clients, whether it’s in corporate or commercial, dispute resolution, litigation, or mergers and acquisitions. We position ourselves as the “dealmakers of the decade,” and that’s down to the fact we have the most incredible lawyers. When it comes to applying both the legal muscle and the technology muscle to help our clients solve difficult issues, that’s what we’re really good at.
