We've done all we can to break free from the traditional legal business model to provide clients with a service that's relevant, progressive and effective. This has involved digging deep to find out what our clients really want from us, and how to provide that in the most effective way. Our innovative products derive from this. We set up elexica, a dedicated legal content website for clients and contacts. It provides a rich stream of legal information, services and resources – any time they are needed, absolutely free. Launched over a decade ago, and one of the first of its kind, elexica has grown into an impressive library of practical guides, checklists, case reports, legal analysis, training modules, podcasts and email alerts.
Then there are our award-winning navigator products, developed by our Financial Services team and launched online. They provide standardised information on four areas of financial services regulation (fund marketing, derivatives, securities marketing, and share disclosure and short selling) across nearly 100 jurisdictions, at a fraction of the cost of traditional legal advice. Already a huge success, we are planning to extend its scope to other areas of financial services.
Realising that technology could reduce our costs and help the environment, we gave all of our employees a VOIP webcam and Officer Communicator System. This allows them to instantly collaborate with people all over the world and maintain our commitment to being carbon neutral.
We’ve consistently shown our willingness to embrace different ways of working in order to deliver greater value to our clients. This is why we’ve also announced our plans to open an office in Bristol to support the firm in undertaking complex, high-value work for clients in a more efficient and cost- effective way.
