Using technology to disrupt traditional legal ways of working

Legal technology trends continue to shape the industry, in New Zealand and worldwide. We are seeing constant disruption to traditional legal ways of working. As court services continue to move towards modern technology solutions, we have increased our use of digital technology, which has changed the way in which we engage with our clients.

Our Project Services specialist team applies concepts of project management to the supervision of legal proceedings and case management, using legal technology for greater efficiency. The team works with our legal staff to provide both technical legal solutions and excellent customer experience through its knowledge and resourcefulness. Our in-house team of legal technology and project management specialists is comprised of lawyers, project managers, database administrators and paralegals.   

With considerable expertise managing electronic or hard copy information of any volume or format, we use smart, artificial intelligence, and electronic database functionality ensuring our clients experience a ‘no surprises’ approach, with effective communication, resulting in a carefully managed process to deliver on time and on budget.
