Finance & banking

LawVu is a legal workspace - a connected single source of truth for in-house legal teams in financial services.

Unique problem

In-house legal departments in the finance and banking industry are known for having the highest technology budgets and usage, outside counsel spend and the largest internal teams. The banking sector is also highly regulated and frequently experiences the following issues
  • No central, easy method for the business to instruct the legal team
  • Different ways of working across numerous in-house teams (by function and geography), creating inconsistency, duplication and/or inefficiency
  • No centralized system of record for documents and matters
  • Little transparency on the progress of matters, including which team/individual has responsibility across the various tasks and matters
  • No effective way to manage and reduce spend across multiple external law firms
  • Inability to derive useful and actionable metrics from in-house team performance
