KYL is Teaming with ThinkSmart to Help Clients Automate
In the new, digitally-empowered legal industry, there are new dimensions to client service. For a pioneering firm like Keesal, Young & Logan, one of those is helping its clients get the same benefits KYL has seen from legal workflow automation.
One step on that path is to extend their relationship with ThinkSmart to design and deliver a suite of standardized legal workflow automation solutions to help their clients’ own in-house legal teams easily integrate automation into their existing processes, sparing them the need for costly and time-consuming IT involvement.
As Justin Hectus, KYL’s CIO/CISO, explains it,
“ThinkSmart gives us a platform to launch strategic workflow transformation initiatives in the firm and on behalf of our clients. KYL’s TAP development team is working with ThinkSmart and the firm’s attorneys to turn industry and legal knowledge into common workflows that can be customized as needed.”
KYL has initiated several collaborations with clients and vendor partners using our ThinkSmart Automation Platform (TAP) in the last year. The firm and its clients are starting to reap the rewards of legal workflow automation: increased efficiencies, more consistency and greater cost control, while freeing professionals from mundane tasks to focus on work that’s worthy of their expertise.
Transforming the legal ecosystem
Client legal operations teams and the businesses they support are part of an increasingly complex “legal ecosystem” with an enormous number of workflows and processes. By installing standardized automated workflows, however, these organizations have seen significant savings in time and money, while freeing legal staff from mundane tasks to focus on work that’s worthy of their expertise.
“KYL is dedicated to driving innovation in the legal industry and is leveraging TAP to make it happen,” explains our own Paul Hirner. “In turn, ThinkSmart is dedicated to expanding our relationship as we explore ways to provide standardized workflow automation solutions to Legal Ops across the country and beyond.”
