Business Challenge

Julie Jakings explains the importance of technology and of selecting software providers to the forward-thinking Berwin Leighton Paisner. Julie comments: “We are passionate about embracing technology and providing our team and our clients with the very best service and we constantly research the technology available in the marketplace.

The implementation of electronic legal forms is now standard practice within the legal profession, but, in the 1980s, when the software was relatively new to the market, Berwin Leighton Paisner was one of the first law firms to research and install an electronic forms system. Julie adds: “Berwin Leighton Paisner was one of the first UK firms to look at using electronic forms at a time when many were suspicious that they would save time and money. True, the earliest forms were very basic and the technical support was somewhat sketchy in the early years but we knew that it would make a massive difference to the way we worked.
