Janders Dean and LexisNexis announce the 2016 Legal Innovation Index Winners
Collaboration across law firms, clients and professional service firms has seen a rise in the power and impact of legal innovation this year in Australia and New Zealand, as evidenced by the 2016 Legal Innovation Index announced tonight by Janders Dean and LexisNexis®.
Facing stiff competition with a 100 per cent increase in entries this year across organisations, individuals and academics, the 2016 Legal Innovation Index highlights a rise in the embrace of innovative thinking and design, as well as, the realisation of many projects that have been implemented in the past six to 12 months.
“What we love about this year’s entries is the amount of collaboration between firms, their clients and other specialist law, professional service or technology organisations”, explains Joanne Beckett, Managing Director of LexisNexis Australia. “To see the industry set aside competition and work together for the benefit of the client is very innovative for this sector and a sign that the ‘age of the client’ has come to the fore in Australia”.
