By the end of 2018, the firm had founded SKW Schwarz @ Tech GmbH, in which the lawyers bundle all activities in the legal tech field covering all locations and specialist areas. SKW Schwarz @ Tech GmbH deals with the development, customization, marketing and distribution of legal tech products and applications. We provide advice in connection with the digitalization of legal services. In this context, we also rely on active exchange and cooperation with legal tech companies such as Bryter and Smashdocs and work closely with external consultants, for example in the area of legal design thinking.
SKW Schwarz is one of the pioneers in the field of legal tech.
We don't just talk about digitalisation, we live it. That's why we have built up our own legal tech division and have consistently developed our activities since 2018 in order to simplify processes, offer new solutions and work more cost-efficiently.
Our Innovation Lab team combines legal and technical know-how and is engaged in the development of digital products and services. Where we ask ourselves whether we can continue to work profitably in the future, we are the first to start with the digitalisation and productisation of our services.
Legal Tech training
Legal Tech is firmly integrated into the training program at SKW Schwarz. In each team dealing with clients, at least one member is trained as an Innovation Ambassador, who works on the digitalization of advisory services. In addition, we offer our lawyers - in addition to our own in-house seminars - training in cooperation with Bucerius Law School on topics such as workflow analysis, project management, legal design thinking and coding for lawyers.
Legal Tech Meetups, speaking engagements and in-house trainings
We promote continuous exchange between lawyers, legal tech providers, publishers, companies and financial investors and regularly hold Legal Tech Meetups. You will meet our legal tech team at legal tech conferences (including Anwalts Zukunftskongress 2019, Swiss Legal Tech Conference, Die Unternehmervertrauten, Berlin Legal Tech Conference, Techtalk Legal). We conduct in-house trainings for our clients.
