PD Law a fi­nal­ist at na­tional awards

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

A WHIT­SUN­DAY law firm has been an­nounced as a fi­nal­ist in the Na­tional ALPMA/Tel­stra Thought Lead­er­ship Awards.

Prop­erty and Devel­op­ment Law (PD Law) is lead­ing the way for re­gional law firms in em­brac­ing tech­nol­ogy to de­liver im­proved and stream­lined client ser­vices via a mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion and client por­tal, pro­vid­ing ac­cess to on­line doc­u­ments and other im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion.

The Aus­tralia Le­gal Prac­tice Man­age­ment As­so­ci­a­tion Tel­stra Thought Lead­er­ship Awards shine a light on in­no­va­tive pro­jects and ini­tia­tives con­ducted by firms across the le­gal sec­tor over the last 12 months in re­sponse to the chang­ing le­gal land­scape.

PD Law Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Melinda Cox said the PD Law staff were now en­joy­ing a fresh ap­proach and more col­lab­o­ra­tive re­la­tion­ships with the clients.

“Clients are en­gaged from the mo­ment the busi­ness starts work on their mat­ter and are there­fore gain­ing the ben­e­fit of a more in­formed process. Im­proved client en­gage­ment has had a pos­i­tive im­pact on costs by re­duc­ing time spent and there­fore in- creas­ing ca­pac­ity,” Ms Cox said.

Clients in­volved in the roll out of the mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion have been very en­thu­si­as­tic and it has been ex­tremely well re­ceived by those peo­ple work­ing shifts who can­not always gain ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion dur­ing work hours.

“All crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion and dates are all stored in one place and can be down­loaded, the mo­bile app makes it conve- nient and flex­i­ble as it is op­er­a­tional 24/7,” Ms Cox said.

This is the sec­ond year the awards have been held.

The win­ner of the award will be an­nounced at the gala din­ner at the 2014 ALPMA Sum­mit in Mel­bourne next Thurs­day night, Au­gust 28, and the firm will be rep­re­sented by CEO and Direc­tor Melinda Cox and staff mem­ber Melissa Wick.
