A new approach to working with commercial information - learn from this year's winner of the LawTech award for best practice knowledge management
"Best Practice in Knowledge Management" is the award category at the annual LawTech Summit that recognises outstanding achievement in the process of collating, organising, sharing and analysing knowledge.
This year, law firm HWL Ebsworth took home the award. HWL Ebsworth was recognised for its innovation in response to the significant legislative change brought about by the new Personal Property Securities (PPS) regime, which has direct implications for many of its clients.
Thank you again to Peter Frankl of Legal Practice Intelligence for his report titled "HWL Ebsworth LawTech award for best practice knowledge management reflects changing attitude to information in law firms", which includes my comments relating commercial information management.
Peter Frankl reported that HWL Ebsworth uses a new cloud based visual information management platform called Encompass, which has enabled the firm to improve the efficiency and accuracy of its commercial search and review, particularly when it comes to PPS related information. It has also enabled the firm to finalise due diligence quickly, provide prompt advice and minimise risk. I wrote about visual information management in two earlier blogs, which you can revisit here and here.
