working with lawyers and the people who need them

Dan Toombs

My name is Dan Toombs. I’m a Multi-Award Winning Lawyer who works at the intersection of innovation and law. 

In association with my company, Fast Firms, I help law firms become more innovative and successful through brand, design, marketing and technology. We’re Australia’s leading law firm marketing and technology company working with firms both nationally and in the United States. 

I also work with law firm partnership groups who have internal marketing teams  but require additional insight from an outside perspective.  

In association with my team, I have developed software and I’m an official partner with leading software companies including, Client SenseSettifyLaw SwitchSharpspringActive Campaign and Meet Fox.In this context, I’m increasingly involved in helping law firms choose technology that best meets their workflow and/or marketing objectives. 

Outside this, through a network of leading Australian lawyers, I help people with legal issues get great help! 

I’m also involved in research projects, drawing upon my strong expertise in law reform, applying a design-thinking methodology. In this regard, I’m an accredited Belbin Team Roles facilitator, which ensures that the subsequent design-thinking derives from having the “right mix” of people involved in the project to drive outcome focused action-research. 

In this context, I have worked with Legal Aid Queensland, Queensland Government, numerous Non-Government organisations and outside Australia, worked with Erin Brockovich on mass tort campaigns, including one of which that saw one of the World’s largest pharmaceutical companies successfully sued for negligence.
