Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for the Legal industry

Typical law firms are split into two levels, the first are the lawyers/counsel who are focused on solving complex legal issues and developing legal strategies for clients, and on the other level are the service providers (legal secretaries, legal assistants, paralegals etc) who focus on process-driven work.

Robotic process automation (RPA) can improve the speed, quality and efficiency of complex manual tasks like land title searches, docketing, and transcriptions. Not only will you benefit from shorter turnaround times and reduced error rates, but your staff can free their time from redundant manual processes, to focus on delivering services to your clients.

The Burnie Group has one of North America’s largest and deepest RPA benches. This combined with our accomplished in-house development team means we can recommend, design, and implement your custom solution in a matter of weeks.

Innovation and Technology in Legal

Blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt most industries, including the legal field. The key features of blockchain help to provide trust, security, and transparency for all parties involved in a transaction process.

There are several areas where law firms can benefit from blockchain:

  • Authorization of new clients (e.g. when dealing with 3rd parties for validation)
  • Micro Contracts e.g. across various networks and geographies
  • Fraud prevention and Identity Management
  • Payments including via smart devices, crypto-currency, etc.

There are also many areas where law firms may be greatly impacted by blockchain:

  • Smart Contracts
  • Secure and immutable way to store property rights data
  • Proof of chain of custody

The Burnie Group supports clients with an entire array of blockchain services, from strategic blockchain workshops and strategy to blockchain implementation.
