Corrs Chambers Westgarth patents technology

Corrs Chambers Westgarth has patented a cloud-based document reading technology it says will cut processing time and costs in half, the latest development by a law firm joining the tech race.

The national firm will release the web application, known as JustOCR, to a wider market beyond clients, which could include regulators, in-house teams and rival firms, in the latest initiative blurring the lines between lawyer and developer.

“We are committed to open innovation and that means bringing to market our advancements to benefit not just our clients, but the legal profession more broadly,” said Corrs partner James Whittaker.
