Gowling WLG Moves 500 Client Portals to HighQ Collaboration Platform

Leading legal data sharing and management platform HighQ has announced that international law firm Gowling WLG is adopting the company’s intelligent work platform to centralise its client collaboration services.

Gowling WLG, which has more than 1,400 legal professionals in 18 cities across nine countries and three continents, has invested in HighQ because it ‘allows third parties to easily interface with the system’ the company said. In the adoption of the new technology, Gowling WLG will migrate 500 client portals over to the HighQ platform.

The latest client win follows the recent news that HighQ also has been chosen by Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, and the earlier announcement of what it hopes will become ‘the natural interface for multiple AI engines’, called the AI Hub (see story here).

Jody Jansen, Head of Architecture and Innovation for Gowling WLG, said: ‘We trust HighQ because of the reputation the company has built in the legal industry. They are the leaders in their market. What we’re trying to do is collaborate more with our client and reduce the steps in the middle. That’s where HighQ comes in and automates the interface between our system and the client’s system.’

James Connor, HighQ’s Sales Director for EMEA, added: ‘HighQ is excited to work with a tech-savvy firm committed to progress in the legal industry. Gowling WLG’s commitment to client service is evident, and we believe HighQ will help the firm improve client relationships while delivering high-level services in an efficient manner.’
