Innovation and technology make up a core theme of legal firm Ganado Advocates’ strategic objectives, with its recently-appointed Managing Partner, André Zerafa, saying that these are central to the firm’s future plans and endeavours.
In an interview with FinanceMalta, Dr Zerafa says “We want to make an extra effort to be more innovative within the confines of the law and the ethical rules. However, we are also focusing on developing legal tech solutions, and in fact, we are already working on several projects.”
This objective ties in with the firm’s belief in thought leadership, where it seeks to encourage its people “to always think outside of the box and come up with new solutions. This is not just about marketing, it’s again about redefining the legal culture and fostering innovation, ultimately bringing new ideas and perspectives into the market.”
The Managing Partner says three projects are currently in the pipeline, and the idea behind all of them is to develop legal technological solutions in response to clients’ needs, assisting “with their compliance obligations by reducing human intervention and hence the risk of human error, also considering the serious consequences that operators are facing in a fast-moving environment where legal and regulatory compliance are in the limelight.”
Dr Zerafa explains that this forms part of the firm’s strategic plan for the next three years, which will be carried out in tandem with a fast evolving legal landscape, where “emerging technologies, new business models and changing client expectations require law firms to adjust and adapt if they want to continue succeeding in the market, and we are no exception.”
