According to a statement from Riverview Law, the Assistants are aimed at in-house legal teams of any size and are intended to aid the delivery of legal services across the business. They first provide business users with a gateway to legal support, ensuring that consistent and full instructions are received and that data capture is automated. For the in-house team, they then provide case management, document storage and dashboards that provide ‘actionable business insight.’

The right work at the right place 

Chief executive Karl Chapman told Australasian Lawyer that: ‘These ‘Process Assistants’ focus on managing instructions coming into a legal function and capturing the data that helps legal functions ensure that the right work is done in the right place by the right people at the right price.’

‘The Advisory and Smart Assistants we launch later this year will do lower level legal work and provide suggestions for what advice should be given.’

Global reach 

Available in all English speaking countries, the firm has seen interest from both law firms and in-house legal teams in the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Spain. A Spanish version is set to be launched later this year.
