Billy is a spreadsheet guru whose role as a Data Analytics Specialist is to use data and his own insights to help clients and Seyfarth lawyers identify risks, trends and opportunities for improvement. He has seen how good data can produce even better results, and his is an integral part of SeyfarthLean Consulting’s success in helping legal teams turn highly technical streams of information into effective (and elegant) solutions.


After earning a degree in statistics at the University of Illinois, Billy worked for a manufacturing company, focused on using data and technology to improve the plant’s planning and production processes. A true numbers guy, he often is the go-to person for anyone looking to solve a spreadsheet issue. Billy figures out problems with data quickly or he figures out a work-around, all with his trademark smile.

So far, Billy’s favorite accomplishment personally is twice completing the Chicago Marathon. On any given weekend during the summer, you’ll find him (in order): running, watching his beloved Chicago Cubs and, as a professed foodie, hunting down the next great neighborhood restaurant.
