Cavell Leitch
NZ Lawyer Innovative Firms 2020

Cavell Leitch has made great strides to innovate its business over the past three years.

The Christchurch-based firm has been running a fully digital office since 2017, with all its staff trained and equipped with devices to work remotely when required. This has resulted in a 90% cut in paper usage, a reduction in file storage, and a more compact and accessible office. It also enabled its litigation team to help set up and participate in the first electronic trial in Christchurch.

Four self-driven agile teams have been mobilised to drive innovation in the firm. Initiatives led by the team include a firm-wide flexible working policy and a dress-for-your-day policy – changes that have assisted in staff retention and staff wellbeing.

Cavell Leitch also boasted a gender diverse workplace, with 50% of its partners were female. It has also embraced its millennial and Gen Z staff by implementing a shadow board, which allowed the young bloods to drive initiatives that make the business more relevant to its customers and staff.
