Simpson Grierson has implemented numerous innovative initiatives over the past year focusing on business transformation as well as in embedding flexible working throughout the firm.
Under its Business Transformation and Innovation Programme, Simpson Grierson has worked with a UK legal engineering consultancy to trial how machine-learning tools can streamline the review of lease documents. It also launched MatterWorks, a tool that enables the firm to better manage matters and provide more transparency and real-time information to clients. The programme also provides in-house teams trainings, workshops, and market updates covering the new and proven legal technologies and approaches around the globe. Another innovation was the rollout of an online Visual Law Library, to inspire and support its people to deliver advice in more visual ways.
The firm also focused on embedding flexible working throughout the firm over the past year, by allowing its staff to manage their days, as they deem appropriate; doing away with the lengthy dress code; and enabling more blended-learning options that allow staff to access education from anywhere, at any time, and on any device.
