Mills & Reeve commended in FT Innovative Lawyers 2013 for online employment tool
Mills & Reeve has been recognised in the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers 2013 report in the value resourcing category.
The firm was commended for its online automated agreement tool that focuses on the efficient in-house production of employment settlement agreements.
According to employment partner Nicola Brown, the system enables the presentation of complicated drafting options in a flexible and simple way. Some clients have direct access to the automation, enabling them to complete the simpler transactions themselves and to only refer to the firm for the more complex cases.
Now in its eighth year, the Innovative Lawyers report covers the work of individual Europe-based law firms and their contribution to the wider economy, highlighting fresh thinking and innovative practice.
