Today’s sponsor for the Hour of Power is LastPass, a password management company backed by LogMeIn, one of the world’s largest SaaS providers. Lloyd Evans starts us off with a compelling fact that 47% of data breaches in the legal sector last year was due to compromised passwords!
LastPass helps legal providers to secure their reputation and information, by providing password management solutions, by using an extra layer of security through biometric-based MFA (multi-factor authentication), and adding ease by unifying login options – all on one platform.

Noel Lim then joins us from Anika Legal, a not for profit with a vision to ensure anyone can access legal assistance. Anika Legal has built an online platform to achieve this. Anika Legal’s model involves law students assisting lawyers in casework, expanding the capacity for lawyers to assist clients.
Anika Legal’s demonstration takes us through firstly, an online intake process linked to clients’ SMS, website or email, that only takes a minute to determine clients’ eligibility for their service. It also allowed clients to upload documents, and share more of their story, which flows into Anika Legal’s case management system. In this system, data is sourced securely, and users can access data visualisation which is also linked to this information, for example, tracking case outcomes and status across the organisation, capacity.

Next we have Lee Price from STACT – an AI system aimed to alleviate disputes in the construction and infrastructure industry. For background, 70% of construction projects are disputed, as the industry often faces cost overruns, and complex compliance obligations with legislation and contract terms.
STACT uses AI to assist parties with compliance of their contract terms, and collects and visualises data to ensure parties have line-of-sight on compliance. STACT is also currently developing an AI tool that will help to be a decision-maker in dispute resolution in this industry.

It’s then time for us to hear from Client Sense – one of ALTA’s founding members – and Tom Caplin joins us to introduce the legal tech solution. Client Sense is a business development solution for professional services firms, providing a holistic perspective of their client relationships. Client Sense has strong experience working with range of mid-tier law and accounting firms.
Client Sense’s demonstration shows how it automatically tracks client data and engagement, to see which business groups are interacting with which clients, and in which office a client relationship is linked to. This data is automatically collected, eliminating the need for manual data entry. Another feature of Client Sense is their Contact Card feature, gathering client information (e.g. titles, location, LinkedIn details) from email signatures – which then can be used to send out tailored campaign materials to clients, referrers and prospects.
