NZ Lawyer Innovative Firms 2020

Seventeen forward-thinking firms stand out from the pack

NZ Lawyer Innovative Firms 2020

NZ Lawyers’ Innovative Firms shine the spotlight on firms across the country who fearlessly embrace change and break the mould of existing business models to drive the legal profession forward, with 17 firms standing out from the pack.

Areas of innovation covered by this year’s winners include new products, services, and delivery, diversity and inclusion, business models and workplace culture, processes, pricing, marketing, client experience, staff training and development, and automation.

A word from our partner

"Necessity is the mother of invention" – I’m sure this has been the case for some law firms during these challenging times, and I hope these unique conditions that we all find ourselves in at the moment act as the catalyst for more firms to innovate and work smarter.

One-way law firms can innovate is by embracing legal technology. Legal technology can free up capacity to take on more clients, and therefore increase revenue and reduce costs.

The NZ Lawyer Innovative Firms Awards recognises the firms throughout New Zealand that have embraced and excelled in innovation in order to add even more value to the important work they are doing.

Cloudcheck is proud to sponsor these awards, and I congratulate the award recipients on their excellent work in innovation and I look forward to seeing what they do next to help drive the profession forward.
