Clayton Utz has adapted an agile innovation method and framework that empowers its people to seek opportunities to innovate and work collaboratively with their clients, colleagues, and peers to experiment to solve actual problems.
The firm’s deliberate and considered approach to innovation has led to:
- the introduction of an Australian-first integrated forensic, technology, and legal services that aims to develop the workforce of tomorrow, providing the firm’s legal and non-legal graduates with certified skills and capabilities in data collection, data analytics, data rooms, cyber-security, fraud investigations, forensic collections, infrastructure and security, financial analytics, and innovation projects;
- the launch of the Underpayments Tool, a bespoke analytics model that addresses discrepancies between clients’ enterprise agreements and payment rules in their payroll systems, identifying the employees affected and the quantum of the underpayments, to use in remediation discussions; and
- the activation of REMI, a sophisticated regulatory dashboard tool that tracks the entire notice life cycle, providing real-time reporting and the ability to drill down to a granular level, to assist clients in making informed decisions about where to invest resources and strengthen commerciality.
