NZ Lawyer Innovative Firms 2020

WRMK, Northland’s largest law firm, is one of the first firms in NZ to go digital, adopting sophisticated workflow and online file management systems to enable its staff to work efficiently and flexibly.

The firm uses connected, smart meeting rooms for effective firm-wide communication; conducts regular video meetings with clients; and allows staff to swap amongst its four offices or their home with full access to their work, to promote a better working lifestyle. This digital office facilitates flexible working arrangements, with 40% of its people working flexibly in 2019.

This flexibility, plus the WRMK’s non-hierarchical flexible working culture, enables the firm to move towards equal gender representation. Last year, the firm promoted one part-time female associate and one flexibly working director to director and managing director, respectively.

Meanwhile, WRMK’s subsidiary business, PageZero, in its third year of operation, continues to support other regional firms with secure and effective online workflow systems and remote trust accounting services.
