Wood was formerly a management consultant at McKinsey & Company which offers businesses advice on risk management, marketing and sales strategies, sustainability strategies, corporate finance and operations procedures. He then worked at Torys LLP as a non-lawyer executive, holding the title of chief marketing officer.

Wood followed that up by founding a human resources and technology company and then went on to serve as chief operating officer for AUM Law Professional Corporation, a boutique corporate firm in Toronto. Most recently, he was chief operating officer for Exact Media.

“We ran an exhaustive search to find the right individual to lead our firm of over 40 lawyers. Stuart is the embodiment of the leader, strategist and motivator that we were seeking. We are confident that he has the right focus and skill set to deliver the technological and business initiatives that will advance Caravel Law’s unique legal services delivery model,” said Caravel co-founder Rubsun Ho.

“We love that he shares our belief that the deployment of technology-infused legal services is essential to the next wave of innovation and growth.”
