VISCHER Legal Innovation Lab
Not only do we develop legal solutions for our clients, we also develop new formats for this. The VISCHER Legal Innovation Lab is an initiative founded in 2023 to better promote and further develop various projects of ours in the area of legal technology and other forms of innovation in the field of law and throughout the law firm. In this context, we also want to go down paths that at first glance seem unusual for a traditional Swiss business law firm. Our experience to date shows that we are on the right track. For us, however, legal tech in particular should not be a gimmick or merely lip service, but should make our work and its benefits more efficient, accessible and also better in terms of content.
In the VISCHER Innovation Lab, we not only work in the field of law, we also develop our solutions ourselves as far as possible from a technical point of view, including AI-based solutions. This helps us to understand the problems associated with technology, such as the use of the cloud or generative AI, from our own perspective. This, in turn, enables us to better advise our clients and really know what we are talking about.
Some results from our work:
Innovation not only means the use of technology, but also new forms in which we develop our legal work products for our clients – if it is appropriate.
In other cases, we use new visualisation techniques to better communicate our content. In a dispute in the field of criminal sanctions, we presented the management of a client, who was tired of the classic memos, with its legal challenges and the corresponding solution in an interactive mind map. Not only were we quicker, but we were also able to achieve the goal better.
In such cases, we resort to existing tools that our specialists search for, evaluate and make fit for our purposes, in particular with regard to the protection of professional secrecy, for use in everyday consulting. For example, we have implemented applications in collaboration with such companies and institutions as Remarkable, the Harvard Law School Library and Microsoft. For the Swiss Bar Association (SAV), we have developed the contractual basis so that Swiss law firms can use the Microsoft cloud for M365.
