King & Wood Mallesons (KWM), a global elite law firm, has adopted Atticus as a method for verification.
The firm has scaled Atticus across its Australian offices, empowering its lawyers and clients to efficiently and accurately collaborate on the review of critical documents such as prospectuses, investor presentations, offer booklets, scheme booklets, and information memorandums.
Atticus has enabled lawyers from KWM to seamlessly collaborate with their clients and stakeholders to meet tight transaction deadlines in this new remote working environment, without sacrificing accuracy or introducing unnecessary risk.
By streamlining the previously painstaking manual verification process, Atticus provides KWM teams and their clients with more time to focus on the substantive legal or commercial issues that can arise during a deal.
executive director of innovation, michelle mahoney:
At KWM we seek to identify, experiment, validate and achieve scaled adoption of enabling LegalTech products which deliver both efficiency and efficacy for our clients. Atticus has been a popular inclusion in our LegalTech portfolio.
senior associate, john arthur:
The transition from manual verification to Atticus has been a great leap in digitising the verification process and reshaping the client experience, resulting in significant time savings for lawyers and enabling cloud based collaboration for client organisations.
Saul Wakerman, Client Director at Atticus, said, ‘We’re excited to see Atticus adopted broadly by KWM. We’ve worked closely with the Innovation team from the first transaction through to the full rollout of the software, including the training of graduate lawyers in Atticus and the lawyers’ exploration of new use cases for the flexible tool.’
KWM is acutely focused on leveraging technology to support their high standard of client service. We’re excited to be working with the lawyers and their clients to further improve the verification experience.
