Burness Paull’s dedicated innovation team are driving the firm’s innovation agenda forward with the adoption of StructureFlow, cutting edge software which enables complex group structure charts and M&A transactions to be graphically represented. Signing a 3-year partnership, Burness Paull are embedding StructureFlow across the firm to utilise visualisation far more effectively, significantly enhancing the client experience.
Walter Clark, Corporate M&A Partner and a founder member of the firm’s Transformation and Innovation Group, said: “What I’ve liked about StructureFlow from the start is that it’s legal tech which is genuinely solving a problem. It’s a night and day difference in terms of what we used to do, versus what we can do now. Clients absolutely love the diagrammatic presentation of complex information, which is brilliant. What’s also vitally important is that it makes our lawyers’ lives easier – that’s a critical factor when we’re assessing something new.”
The firm’s Transformation and Innovation Group is bringing significant, long-term benefits to clients and Burness Paull’s own teams by balancing the energy of ideas with intelligent process change and smart technology adoption.
Clark went on to add: “We’ve had incredibly strong adoption of StructureFlow within the firm, with so many of our people using it for different purposes, so not just classic corporate structure charts. Our litigators use it to show clients timelines for court procedures, our commercial team maps data flows, and internally our own HR colleagues have created organograms for our different teams. So much of it makes the client experience better, plus it’s much simpler for our own people. A true win-win.”
Tim Follett, CEO and founder of StructureFlow, said: “The world is becoming ever-increasingly complex. Visualisation can cut through that complexity. As we have seen with other industries, there is so much potential to visualise information to make it easier to understand. Visual thinking is the future of the legal sector.”
