Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, a leading law firm to global corporations and financial institutions, is featured in the Nielsen Norman Group’s 2016 Intranet Design Annual, which identifies the 10 best-designed corporate intranets of the year. Cadwalader is the first U.S. law firm to earn a spot on the list.
The winning intranets, chosen by expert review based on design and usability from a field of hundreds of nominations, are highlighted here: www.nngroup.com/news/item/2016-intranet-design-awards/.
Launched in July of 2015, Cadwalader’s new intranet, Cadwalader Connect, was conceived by the firm’s Knowledge Management Initiative Team, comprised of Cadwalader lawyers and other professionals. The platform integrates tools and data, new technologies and new processes to create a convenient access point for many of the firm’s systems.
“The firm identified the need for a knowledge management system that enhances our ability to address clients’ needs and that supports our culture and coordination through improved internal communication,” said Patrick Quinn, Cadwalader’s Managing Partner. “Cadwalader Connect allows us to leverage powerful tools to efficiently manage our business, strengthen internal and external relationships, provide efficient access to data, and deliver exceptional legal services to our clients.”
Cadwalader Connect fosters collaboration and communication across the firm’s global offices through enhanced search capabilities; partner-focused financial dashboards; a robust firm directory; a single global platform with multilingual functionality; and a cohesive, modern design that supports the firm’s branding.
