Casey Flaherty and Jae Um are well-followed in the law firm innovation Twitterverse. Now, they will seek to gain influence and drive change among the global partnership of Baker McKenzie.

The firm announced on Tuesday it had hired Flaherty as director of legal project management and Um as director of pricing strategy. The former consultants will serve as part of a larger team Baker McKenzie has been building aimed at re-engineering the delivery of the firm’s services.

In June, the 5,000-plus-lawyer firm hired David Cambria, dubbed “the Godfather of legal operations,” to serve as its first global director of legal operations. Flaherty and Um both said Cambria’s decision to join Baker McKenzie was influential in their decisions to join the team the firm is building, which is indicative of a broader trend in the industry to build out professional service roles.
