BCLP Cubed, a new service for high-volume, business-as-usual legal work from Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP), has been formally launched. The initiative brings together some 150 people across the global firm for the first time.

Integrated approach

BCLP Cubed is committed to addressing clients’ needs by offering complex, volume and legal operations services across one platform. The integrated approach enables cost savings, faster transaction times and data-driven insights. Neville Eisenberg, BCLP Cubed’s ceo, said “BCLP Cubed gives clients the option of a one-stop-shop for their high-volume work in a way that integrates complex advice and legal operations support, all within the framework of a major law firm. In addition to speeding up transaction cycles and reducing costs, the service will enable better risk management for clients.” BCLP Cubed will provide an initial suite of solutions in a number of areas where BCLP already has experience and in which clients typically experience high-volume demands: supporting real estate asset management, delivering commercial contract services, streamlining the generation and management of loan agreements, and responding to European data access requests

New hire

BCLP’s chief innovation officer Katie DeBord has led the development of the solutions. She said, “These solutions can be quickly deployed to clients, customised to meet their needs, and the BCLP Cubed team is now working on expanding this initial range of services in order to meet other client requirements. We have been delighted with the reaction from the market to the concept. Clients immediately appreciate the issue we are addressing and we are very happy to already be working with high-profile companies on developing solutions for their business-as-usual work.” BCLP Cubed also announced the hire of Jody Jansen, former head of architecture and innovation of international law firm Gowling WLG. Mr Jansen will join BCLP Cubed as its chief technology officer, having worked in legal technology and legal innovation for the past 20 years.
