NewLaw provider looks to boost innovation in SA

NewLaw provider looks to boost innovation in SA


A NewLaw firm has announced this week that it has established an Adelaide office, continuing its growth trajectory of the past two years.

Lexvoco has launched a new office in Adelaide, bringing its office count to seven across Australia and New Zealand.

Jason Ryan, former deputy general counsel at Treasury Wine Estates, has joined lexvoco as managing counsel in the Adelaide office.

“Lexvoco is at the cutting edge of legal innovation,” said Mr Ryan.

“They are leading a movement that brings new thinking to the way businesses operate their legal functions. The application of efficiency theories and automation tools together with talented in-house lawyers is a fresh approach to law.

“I’m excited to be part of a wave which is helping all sorts of organisations become more efficient and productive.”

Mr Ryan hopes that lexvoco’s presence will boost legal innovation in South Australia.

“Adelaide is yet to experience the same wave of legal innovation seen in other Australian states,” he said.

“With the introduction of lexvoco, I intend to assist all sorts of organisations to enhance the way their legal operations perform.”

Lexvoco principal Emily McCarthy welcomed Mr Ryan to the firm.

“We’re thrilled to have Jason in our team. Not only does he epitomise what we stand for, he’s also an advocate of using technology and processes to create strategies for continuous improvement,” said Ms McCarthy.

“This also underpins lexvoco’s mission of helping legal teams develop and embrace innovation to improve legal services delivery.”

The firm said in a statement that it has already begun acting for several leading Adelaide-based organisations.
