Case Study #1: Asia-Pacific Strategy Review
CHALLENGE: A $10.5 billion network of top tier independent law firms with 15 member firms across 19 countries in the Asia-Pacific region needs to understand the competitive landscape of 15 countries to gauge strategic opportunities for member firms in the region.
APPROACH: We used market data to quantify and map the competitive landscape across the Asia-Pacific region and then engaged member firm leaders to collect their on-the-ground perspectives of competitive threats and strategic opportunities.
OUTCOME: We quantified the competitive landscape and opportunities for member firms in the Asia-Pacific region. The network used this data to engage its member firms in building a referral network to better compete for clients and business.
Case Study #2: Design Thinking for Legal Services
CHALLENGE: The legal department of a major Australian technology company wanted to improve the way that it engaged with the broader business for BAU legal risk assessments.
APPROACH: We facilitated a design thinking based workshop that pulled together a multi-disciplinary team, identified bottlenecks to existing processes, and surfaced new approval pathways and processes to circumvent these bottlenecks.
OUTCOME: Our client created a suite of proactive elements that now form the basis of a strategy for improving the customer experience in internal delivery and consumption of legal services.
Case Study #3: Designing technology adapted for specific needs of lawyers
CHALLENGE: A transactional team at an international law firm wanted to identify the most contentious issues that are likely to arise in their negotiations of certain legal documents.
APPROACH: We examined information that was available individually and collectively to each member of the team, undertook a data wrangling exercise, and proposed a solution that utilises the available data in new ways.
OUTCOME: Together with an AI partner who specialises in legal language processing, we proposed a software dashboard that can provide insights into such contentious issues.
