Linklaters formally announced today (17 March) that it has partnered with no-code automation platform BRYTER on a series of global initiatives, including an app which gives clients access to everything they need in the event of a dawn raid.
The partnership, which is being led by newly appointed Global Head of Practice Innovation, Greg Baker, and the firm’s global practice innovation team, continues to look for potential areas for digitisation across the firm’s global practice areas on key legal and regulatory topics.
Linklaters launched its first Global Hackathon in collaboration with BRYTER earlier this year. Split into four stages, the Hackathon allowed participants to leverage the BRYTER platform to build client-facing digital applications and prototypes without having to write any code.
Baker commented: “As we continue to identify areas across the firm that are ripe for innovation and disruption, BRYTER’s powerful and adaptable platform enables us to quickly prototype, test and identify the right development route for solutions created to make the lives of our clients and lawyers easier. The partnership is driven by the firm’s relentless drive to revolutionise the delivery of our services and focus on the client and lawyer experience.”
Michael Grupp, CEO of BRYTER, added: “We are thrilled to partner with Linklaters and support the firm in rapidly building and launching client facing applications. Law firms like Linklaters are at the very forefront of client service delivery precisely because they put their clients’, and their lawyers’, experience at the centre of everything they do, seeking to make it easier and faster to deliver legal services.”
BRYTER announced at the end of 2021 that it had won fellow magic circle firm Clifford Chance as a client.
