On 29 October 2019, “Service of the Year 2019” awards took place. This is a very prestigious event organised by the Lithuanian Business Confederation, which attracts the attention of leaders in various business areas, as it gives them a unique opportunity to present their innovative products and services to the public, while competing amongst themselves in 12 nominations. This year, the innovative service “Legal Department as a Service Allaw” developed by JURIDICON Law Firm was very highly evaluated by the public, which helped it win the “̨Law Service of the Year” award.

At the award ceremony Laimonas Marcinkevičius, the representative of JURIDICON Law Firm and the creator of the service itself, made a very laconic speech, which emphasized only the main advantages of the innovative service. He pointed out that most of the time people see lawyers as consultants, who advise legal or natural persons on various legal matters. Due to this stereotype, many people ask themselves, are lawyers even capable of coming up with something new nowadays? Laimonas Marcinkevičius stated that knowledge helps legal professionals to improve and, like every other profession, the legal profession changes, as it is forced to adapt to the constantly changing circumstances and needs of clients.

The main purpose of this service, which is a combination of experience, legal knowledge and innovative technologies, project and process management, is to contribute to the value creation of a business. Such a combination of assets provides for a faster provision of legal services and helps to save the time of clients. The standardised and organized management technology used in the innovative service provides the client with a “one-stop shop”, where routine legal services could be delivered at one place in the fields of labour law, data protection, contract law, company law, etc. Moreover, the “Allaw” platform allows to receive assistance from a risk and compliance expert, a data protection officer or a mediator. Also, clients are able to resolve some legal issues themselves by accessing the “Allaw Knowledge Management System”, which contains legal documents and their samples; moreover, the integrated automatic document generation allows to quickly generate the required legal document when needed.

The “Legal Department as a Service Allaw” is a seamless technology and knowledge-based external legal department helps to ensure good governance, risk management and legal compliance within the company. The “Legal Department as a Service Allaw” could benefit both small and medium-sized businesses as it is available for a fixed subscription fee. The main advantage of this service is the ability to alter the legal services provided depending on the size, activity and development stage of the client’s business. According to Laimonas Marcinkevičius, the idea of this service originated as a natural impulse in order to meet the needs and expectations of clients. “We hope that this service will help to create even greater value for businesses,” said Laimonas Marcinkevičius

JURIDICON Law Firm is proud to receive the Law Service of the Year 2019 award. “This award is not just a recognition of our efforts, but also an encouragement to strive for improvement of legal services,” said Laimonas Marcinkevičius.
