Brisbane, Australia – Hatch have been announced as a Value Champion for 2019 by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC). The awards recognize corporate legal departments and their external partners that bring value to their organizations through strategies that streamline processes, increase client satisfaction and/or reduce turnaround times or legal spend. The ACC, a global legal association representing over 45,000 members in 85 countries, announced 10 champions from across the globe in banking, mining, and communication industries.

“At Hatch we believe in innovating all that we do. This extends to how the legal team enables and empowers our employees to respond to our clients commercially and achieve the mutual goal of project success,” says Kim Cavallaro, legal counsel and company secretary, Australia-Asia.

By adopting a design thinking mindset to creatively solve complex problems from the user’s perspective, Hatch ’s legal practice developed an intuitively designed information sharing platform to map internal legal and corporate resources to the same engagement lifecycle phases already used by the firm’s employees to deliver projects. The ACC judges praised the team for, “put[ting] together a visually pleasing self-service solution and [driving the] adoption. The project is replicable; [and] would be of interest to law departments of any size.”

“I’m proud of our legal team’s global recognition by the ACC. It’s testament to the breadth of our expertise, and culture of innovation and creativity― the same culture Hatch has been recognized for in the metals, infrastructure, and energy industries for over 60 years,” says Jan Kwak, regional managing director, Australia-Asia.

Hatch congratulates the other 2019 ACC Value Champions. Read the ACC press release here and more about Hatch’s legal innovation project here.
