G+T has been named 12th Most Innovative Company in the Australian Financial Review’s (AFR) list of the top 50 firms at the cutting edge in 2017.
Cementing the firm’s reputation as delivering the most innovative legal services in Australia, Gilbert + Tobin was the only law firm to make the 2017 list.
The awards, now in their 6th year recognised Gilbert + Tobin for its innovation program which led to the development of its flagship Smart Search suite of tools that automate searches for client-based due diligence work; and the Smart Counsel app - a free digital platform providing expert tips, example clauses and usage guides for in-house counsel.
The Smart Counsel app represents an unprecedented move by a major Australian law firm to provide free access to intellectual property for its clients and the broader legal community.
This recognition proves once again that Gilbert + Tobin’s comprehensive innovation strategy is not only adding value for clients but also leading the way in transforming the legal industry.
Managing Partner Danny Gilbert said it was an honour to be recognised in the list of top-ranking companies who are pushing the boundaries on game-changing innovations and embedding an innovation mindset in everything they do.
“We are thrilled to be named among the top most innovative companies in Australia and New Zealand and a stand-out in the legal industry. We continue to challenge ourselves to raise the bar when it comes to integrating technology into our business and disrupting traditionally labour intensive and low-value tasks to enable our lawyers to focus on more high-value legal support for our clients.”
