Gilbert + Tobin debuted its new Smart Counsel app during The Australian’s Legal Week initiative, providing expert tips, example clauses and usage guides for in-house counsel.
Available online or via iOS and Android smartphone apps, Smart Counsel has been developed by our Legal Transformation team in order to provide access to helpful legal resources and answers to frequently asked questions in a free and easy-to-use platform. Covering topics like contract law, confidentiality and privilege, this new app now places key legal information at the fingertips of in-house lawyers.
Tapping into the firm’s market-leading expertise, Smart Counsel provides access to resources such as an execution block generator, which guides users to select an appropriate execution block for their deed or agreement. The app also includes a suite of common boilerplate clauses for contracts, each accompanied by a short, practical guide written by our experts.
Head of G+T’s Legal Transformation Strategy Team, Petra Stirling, said industry response to Smart Counsel was overwhelming.
“Smart Counsel is just what corporate legal teams need. Dynamic legal expertise, plus fast, digital access. We are seeing whole legal teams download the app overnight.”
