Osborne Clarke tie-up with BigHand

Business law firm Osborne Clarke entered into a strategic technology tie-up with BigHand, wherein the IT Company installed its Digital Dictation software. The move is expected to lead to an increase in the firm's efficiency savings up to $ 3.8 million (£ 2 million) in the coming five years. The European-based firm will install and implement the latest IT tool across all international offices including the Silicon Valley office in U.S. The system will enable the firm to pool resources across offices to provide a more efficient service for fee earners, particularly with regard to supporting corporate transactions. The system is beneficial in normal office environment and enables firms with international destinations to make the most of their resources. Osborne Clarke has the recognition of being the first pan-European firm to set up shop in technological capital of California.

Starting a small firm the duo intends to grow their practice manifold. Flanery, who worked for the late Judge for six years, though did not try cases, gained a lot of experience from other lawyers practicing in the federal court. Grant served Loncar and Associates before he joined Flanery in their new venture.
