Cadwalader Launches Web-Based Financial Services Solution

May 08, 2014

Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP (Cadwalader) announced the launch of Knowledge Driven Systems (KDS) that enable financial service practitioners to perform legal, compliance and transactional tasks through an interactive online solution.  KDS will be available through the Cadwalader Cabinet, a web-based financial regulatory knowledge and intelligence platform that provides news, research tools, topical guides, legal treatises and compliance manuals. 

KDS helps companies reduce costs, save time, document workflow, mitigate risk, streamline compliance processes and improve transaction documentation.  KDS consists of a suite of online analytic and documentation tools that allow in-house personnel to:

  • answer legal questions
  • generate contracts, representation letters and disclosure documents
  • train and educate employees
  • document compliance procedures
  • produce checklists
  • convert traditional instruction manuals into interactive online procedures

Developed by the firm’s Financial Regulation Practice, the Cadwalader Cabinet and KDS illustrate the expansion of the Cadwalader’s innovative use of technologies to provide superior client service in an evolving regulatory climate.  Cadwalader’s Financial Regulation Practice recently was named the IFLR Americas Financial Regulation Team of the Year.

“The expansion of the Cadwalader Cabinet to allow users to work online has been our goal since its inception,” said Steven Lofchie, Co-Chair of the Financial Services Group and Founder of the Cadwalader Cabinet.  “Through this new suite of services, the power of the Cabinet increases exponentially.  KDS offers practitioners step-by-step guidance through processes integral to their work.  Market professionals will find this new suite of services easy to use and comprehensive in scope, as they navigate increasingly complex regulatory and transactional requirements.”

Pat Quinn, Managing Partner-elect of Cadwalader added:  “The Cadwalader Cabinet is a great example of the ways our Firm is providing creative and cost effective solutions to address clients’ legal and business challenges.  Steven’s vision of applying sophisticated knowledge management technology to the practice of law is a powerful new value-add that Cadwalader can provide to our clients.”
