6 SEPTEMBER (SYDNEY): LegalVision, Australia’s fastest growing law firm, has won the prestigious Innovator of the Year award at the nationally recognised Australian Law Awards hosted by Lawyers Weekly.

LegalVision CEO Lachlan McKnight said that a culture of relentless client focus and tech innovation is a hallmark of the business.

“LegalVision continues to lead the digital disruption of the legal industry. Our online, tech-driven model has allowed our specialist lawyers to assist thousands of SMEs, startups and enterprises at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional firms.”

Mr McKnight said LegalVision owes its efficiency to the technology built by its in-house developers.

“This year we’ve begun using our client-centred approach to technology to develop bespoke solutions to larger clients’ legal process challenges. We’ve taken what we’ve always done internally and offered it to corporate clients.”

Despite its move to assist large corporate clients and backing by corporate law firm, Gilbert + Tobin, LegalVision continues to increase small business’ access to legal services through its online model.

LegalVision is now the most visited Australian legal services website. It has published more than 3,000 free legal articles and provided assistance to over 15,000 Australian businesses. Over 4,000 visitors access the website daily.

Mr McKnight said, “Our success is built on using our custom tech to provide fast, exceptional service. This approach is already changing the way legal services are delivered in Australia.”

“This award is a tremendous validation of our tech model,” said Evan Tait-Styles, CTO at LegalVision. “Gone are the days when ‘innovation’ in the legal profession was using the newest practice management software. We’re now using tech to explore how machine learning and self-executing smart contracts can help us deliver our services even more efficiently.”
