Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner’s innovative volume legal delivery service, BCLP Cubed, today announced it has created a global technology partnership with Mendix, the Siemens business that is a global leader in low-code application development.

BCLP Cubed already has used the Mendix platform to create solutions that help bring together volume legal delivery teams with BCLP’s lawyers globally to offer high-volume legal work across commercial contracts, data requests and real estate work streams. The team also has integrated Mendix solutions with other BCLP Cubed technologies, for example artificial intelligence, machine learning, document automation and expert systems tools.

Use of the Mendix platform has benefited a number of recent projects, including a large-scale review of contract terms, such as those triggered by the recent COVID-19 crisis and regulatory changes, and creation of a platform for managing commercial contracts for a major financial institution. Other recent BCLP Cubed projects have involved helping a FTSE 100 company consult and reach settlement agreements with a large number of employees impacted by a business reorganization, as well as the creation of a platform to dramatically improve the process for creating and managing the documentation for loan agreements for financial organizations.

BCLP Cubed’s CEO Neville Eisenberg said: “The COVID-19 crisis and the resulting economic impact worldwide is throwing up huge challenges for our clients. Using Mendix, BCLP Cubed is very rapidly turning around platforms that deliver the new services they require within days or weeks, something which could have taken months using traditional methods.”

BCLP Cubed Chief Technology Officer Jody Jansen said: “The partnership with Mendix is a demonstration of our commitment to using best-in-class technology, which includes platforms that have not been created exclusively for the legal industry. Mendix also embeds agile software development methodologies, enabling us to more effectively collaborate with clients and across our teams of lawyers, legal operations specialists and technologists.”

Nick Ford, chief technology evangelist at Mendix, said: “It is essential to prove the benefit of technology investments to the board and low-code provides tangible results quickly. Rapid innovation is proving key to responding to the current global situation across many different industries, and the legal sector is no exception to this. That is why we are delighted that BCLP Cubed, which is gaining recognition as a major innovator in the legal sector, has chosen to partner with Mendix as a way of delivering for its clients. It is a vote of confidence in our platform and we look forward to continuing to work with the BCLP Cubed team to create additional solutions that deliver for their clients.”
