About Us

Why Lawson James

As a seasoned data expert, David Lawson has years of experience delivering data services within multiple sectors, using an extensive range of technologies. With a background in account management and marketing, Sarah James has a proven track record of listening to clients to problem solve and deliver exceptional customer service.

Together, we created a data services consultancy designed to provide you with a greater level of autonomy and control over how, when and where your data projects are delivered. Our day-rate and fixed-price project options place you in control of your project. We believe that business intelligence can empower an entire organisation to achieve organisational transformation.


How we work

We believe you should always have choice and autonomy over how your project is delivered. We provide a named consultant on every project who is personally overseen by a member of our senior leadership team. You can expect a weekly progress meeting with your developer and a member of our senior leadership team, either on-site or via conference call, whichever suits you best.

We can embed our consultants within your team for day-rate projects, or you may prefer to have several consultants working on your project simultaneously to deliver to ambitious deadlines as part of a fixed-price project.
