The Process Transition team works closely with the continuous improvement, process automation and document automation functions within the Legal Operations group to help users across the firm transition to more digital ways of working in the delivery of their legal services. MinterEllison provides legal and advisory services to a diverse client base across all sectors through offices in Australia and a global network of member firms and affiliates.

Externally, the platform offers an additional level of service and transparency to MinterEllison`s clients, who can now access real-time information on the progress of their business 24/7 via a digital portal. “Instead of our lawyers having to spend time researching multiple systems or talking to different people to get the information they need, the beacon platform captures relevant information and makes it available to the person who needs it, when they need it. This means that we are now able to provide knowledge and information to the right user at the right time so that they can perform the right task. This is a huge improvement for employees because they don`t waste time searching systems for the content or information they need to do their jobs,” said Ken Porter, Director of Legal Operations at MinterEllison.
