Incorporating Blakes partner Jacqueline Shinfield’s knowledge of the retailer’s operations, and her extensive expertise in regulatory compliance, our legal and research teams partnered with our practice innovation group to construct a customized portal for legislatives updates, using the cloud-based product HighQ, which was tailored precisely to the client’s business.
At quarterly intervals, members of the Blakes legal research team classified and tagged every recent or pending legislative and regulatory amendment – providing details of the changes and links to the original sources for easy reference.
On the client side of the portal, the retailer’s compliance professionals could search and filter legislative updates by date, jurisdiction or area of law, allowing relevant stakeholders to focus quickly on the changes that mattered to them.
Messaging and commenting features allowed the client’s team to connect with one another or with Blakes professionals about individual legislative changes that may need additional attention. Users were also able to set up notifications to alert them to updates in areas of particular interest to them.
