GLS & The Middle East Legal Awards 2020

Innovation Through Technology - Private Practice

2 mins • 24 Mar 20

GLS was successful in being recognized by its legal industry peers in winning the Middle East Legal Awards 2020: “Innovation through Technology | Private Practice

So we would like to share our journey through this Awards process with you - not least of which because of the support you have provided us to date.

Here are what we feel personifies the GLS brand of innovation:

  • We launched The GLS Legal Operations Centre - the most comprehensive legal operations resource platform across the Middle East, Asia and Africa - access is also entirely free
  • We have helped countless in-house legal teams ("IHLs") achieve external spend compression ratios of 10:1.  i.e. every US$1 an IHL team spent on GLS tools resulted in a US$10 saving for their external budget
  • We helped transform countless IHL teams (both MNC and sole regional counsels), to digitize their operations and enhance their value recognition within their businesses
  • We made sure every solution & resource was affordable to any IHL team globally by offering flat, non-discriminatory pricing that is not more than 20% of what a traditional law firm could offer
  • We shared our Proprietary Thinking on how IHLs can make resourcing decisions as part of a strategic, transformation agenda
  • We made cutting-edge legal tech affordable and accessible to all businesses (including contract automation, AI billing review, automated compliance dashboards and AI-based contract review)

Thank you very much to the MELA Awards Committee - we are proud to have built a business characterised by the above.
