When one of Australia’s Big Four Banks was looking for a way to understand their engagement behaviours, lower their legal spend, and capture and manage data, they turned to Lawcadia.
Since full implementation in May 2018, they now have access to a central repository of relevant, actionable data, insight and oversight across engagement and matter management trends, automated reporting processes and improved ability to manage spend, predict costs and influence relationships.
With increased regulatory activity and new legislations coming into play, managing risk, identifying compliance issues and meeting regulatory obligations required a new solution. Lawcadia and the Gadens Breach Manager solved these challenges for Fitzpatricks Private Wealth.
“We want to make it as easy as we can for our advisors to comply, and a key part of that is making it easy for them to communicate when something is not right, and they are unsure they should report it.”
Lyn Dixon, Head of Advice Compliance

Metcash implemented Lawcadia in December 2019, choosing to utilise all modules including matter intake and workflow automation, matter management, as well as competitive RFP and spend management capabilities.
“The implementation of Lawcadia has made administration of our legal matters much easier. We now have the ability to manage our internal approval processes and external briefing arrangements and to track costs across all of our matters, in one place. Lawcadia’s support and customer service have been excellent throughout.”
When transformation was a strategic imperative for Ausgrid, a large energy & infrastructure organisation, Lawcadia provided the transparency, data and consistent processes for success.
“Lawcadia provided us with the system we needed to ensure we could accurately track our matters, budget and spend across the legal function,”
Nigel Lowry, General Counsel & Company Secretary, Ausgrid.
Instituting formal cost mechanisms and maintaining budgets via scope control were the key priorities for Delta Insurance, a New Zealand head-quartered specialist liability insurance provider.
Since implementing the Platform in early 2018, they’ve been able to clearly demonstrate the output and value of the legal department and their contribution to the business as a whole, communicate clearly with law firms and work together to set and maintain scope as matters progress and maintain budgets and institute standardised, consistent invoicing practices.
When the Uniting Church in Australia (Synod of Victoria and Tasmania) identified a need for coherent, disciplined engagement and matter management processes, Lawcadia provided the solution.
Having implemented the Platform and established a formal legal panel, UCA have been able to introduce genuine competition to the engagement process, realise cost savings of 30 – 35% and track total spend across matters, business unit and law firm.
“We implemented Lawcadia and now have access to reliable data about the types of work we are performing and where the instructions are coming from. In situations where a team member is out on leave for example, it’s easy to pick up where a matter is at and deal with any issues which arise in a consistent and efficient manner.”

The legal team at Virgin Australia found the design thinking workshops with Lawcadia to be invaluable as they helped us to identify and clarify our pain points and then explore new ways to solve problems using technology.

Lawcadia provided us with the system we needed to ensure we could accurately track our matters, budget and spend across the legal function.
We have found Lawcadia’s [matter management] useful, and easy to use and now have access to reliable data about the types of work we are performing and where the instructions are coming from.
As a specialist liability insurance provider, we wanted more control over our legal spend and law firm relationships. Lawcadia has enabled us to set, track and control scope and budget, ensuring control over individual matters at a time when global oversight across spend is a key imperative.
The Lawcadia team have partnered closely with us to understand our requirements and service needs. The platform has helped us enormously in establishing and managing our legal service providers including better scoping of work, expense management and identifying opportunities for efficiencies and quality improvement.
I have been using Lawcadia for a key infrastructure client and I find it is easy to use, and importantly, gives my client the information they need to manage scope and budget.
With Lawcadia we have transformed the way we procure and manage our external legal services. I am very supportive of innovation that enables teamwork and collaboration, and that is certainly a benefit that Lawcadia brings.
