McR named as finalist in 2015 Legal Innovation Index

6 August 2015

McCullough Robertson has been named on the shortlist for the 2015 Legal Innovation Index announced by LexisNexis® Pacific and Janders Dean, with the final Index set to be revealed on 20 August 2015.

In 2015 McCullough Robertson ran an online ‘Innovation Jam’ involving all 464 internal employees, centred around ‘Strengthening our future as a leading Australian law firm’ with key themes of client service delivery excellence, new products or services that create value for our clients and new business ideas. Kim Trajer, Acting Executive Officer at McCullough Robertson said, ‘ This was the kick start of the firm’s new approach to innovation and the first time we have taken a systematic approach to innovation, centred primarily on being accountable to staff who are prepared to put forward ideas.’

“Innovation has certainly grown from a ‘buzz word’ to a direction in which we are looking to take the business of law in Australia”, explains Jo Beckett, General Manager of LexisNexis Australia. “As a result the 2015 Legal Innovation Index has had more than double the entries of last year, with both companies and individuals presenting a fantastic array of new and re-imagined business practices, tools and ways of thinking to the local legal sector”.

“Just when you could be forgiven for thinking that innovation in the legal profession in Australia has peaked, finalists in the 2015 Index clearly demonstrate the profession’s absolute commitment to continuing to find new and dynamic ways for adding significant and previously untapped value for firms and their clients,” adds Justin North, Director, Janders Dean.

The 2015 Legal Innovation Index winners will be announced at a Sydney event on 20 August 2015.
