Digitisation of the Property Transaction Ecosystem

Benjamin Balk, Amanda Baker, Gina Assimakis & Ann Wooten - SAI Global

In 2008 the government launched their National Seamless Economy initiative which aimed to improve production and efficiencies to achieve a strong, consistent approach in business - including for the property market. Digitisation was a key tool employed to achieve this.

Since then we’ve seen a decided shift in the way property is transacted as the industry joins the growing global movement towards digitisation.

Risk Culture and the Great Legal Services Provider

Karen Lee - SAI Global

Does your legal practice have a vision of being a great professional services provider?

Of course the answer is yes! Whether this is your new year’s resolution or a decision you have made when you last pause and take stock, you need a plan to build on all the great things you have already achieved, as well as set you up for the many challenges ahead.

Culture, or simply “the way we do things around here”, is an important ingredient in a legal practice’s success as a great professional services provider. With this in mind, clearly we need to make sure we have the right culture in place as part of our grand plan.

Thought Leadership for Legal Practice Managers

Karen Lee - SAI Global

´┐╝Thought Leadership for Legal Practice Managers 

Did you say “thought leader”? Isn’t that just another buzzword?


What comes to mind when you hear the term “thought leader”? Some may think a thought leader is someone who comes up with new things and runs with them. Others may think a thought leader is someone who has radical ideas and those ideas have helped made them an authority in their field. One person I spoke with told me that a thought leader is someone who managed to hang on to some innovative concept and also managed to make a living out of it.
Regardless of whether you take an expansive view of what the term means, or you subscribe to a narrower definition of the expression, one thing is for sure – thought leaders are generally recognised experts in their profession, they are respected for their knowledge and experience, they are able to see something most people cannot see, and they are able to capitalise on what they do.

Change is Permanent - 3 top tips to manage this in the practice of Law

Karen Lee - SAI Global

“The legal landscape is changing”. We hear this comment all the time. We all know that this statement is true, but let me show you another way of looking at it. One of the most unique characteristics of the environment we currently operate in is the permanence of the change in our industry. There is longevity in this phenomenon we are experiencing. In other words, change is here to stay.

While some industry players view this as a crisis, law firms and legal practices of all kinds and all sizes are actually presented with the opportunity to take a long, hard look at who we are, what we do, and how we do what we do. The use of legal technology should not escape a legal practice manager’s eagle eye when conducting this exercise.

In this thought provoking article from SAI Global, Karen Lee offers her top three tips to manage change at law firms.
