The Freshfields Lab and Innovation teams drive our legal tech offering, working collaboratively to transform workflows and enhance the client and lawyer experience.

Embedding technology and data analytics as part of an integrated service adds huge value to our clients and is a key component of our Client Delivery Group. Innovative tools, solutions and processes deliver a faster, cheaper and more effective service.

As well as providing the client with access to live, centralised and interactive information across the matter lifecycle, this transparency empowers clients to make data-driven decisions at critical times over the course of their matter.

Where off-the-shelf solutions are unsuitable, the Lab’s multidisciplinary team, consisting of specialists in data science, machine learning and software development, together with our lawyers, works in collaboration with our clients to develop new, bespoke solutions. This approach allows us to leverage technology and data in a way that serves our clients’ unique and most complex challenges.
