Gary Adler
Chief Digital Officer, Melbourne
As Chief Digital Officer, my focus at MinterEllison is on bringing a new legal operations model mindset to 'Big Law' via emerging digital technologies focussed on workflow automation, generative AI, analytics and expert systems to streamline the end-to-end delivery of legal services

I have led the firm to two global Innovation Awards and am well known in the industry for my passion and change leadership in truly leveraging digital to support business growth. I bring to the program 24 years of IT experience, with 15 of those years in senior management roles. I have a finance and accounting background but made the move to IT in the late nineties, initially focussing on infrastructure. I have worked in the investment banking, insurance, mining and professional services sectors in both Australia and the UK. Over time, my focus in IT has varied from managing technical portfolios to enterprise-wide strategy and planning roles.
