Our Story

Creating the future of the Law

 

Transforming Legal Value

At Plexus, we are problem solvers who thrive on seeing the world differently. Everything we do, we assess against how it optimises the creation of value. We challenge ourselves and every one of our clients to do the same.

When we started in 2011, we were motivated by our observations of the hugely negative sentiment playing out in the legal sector. Strikingly low levels of client satisfaction with law firms, low levels of meaningful innovation or technological advancement and a profession with higher levels of depression than any other. It was truly an environment in need of transformation, and frankly still is.

It is our belief that Lawyers wish to reclaim the passion they have always had about practicing law in stimulating and value-enhancing ways. Lawyers want their intellectual curiosity stirred and their capacity to positively impact the world magnified. At the same time organisations are under increasing pressure to reduce costs and drive productivity. They are demanding new ways of thinking and operating, with a clear mandate for demonstrable value creation from every function, Legal included.

Transforming how legal value is created begins by understanding that not all value is created equally. Our end game is liberating legal teams to focus on high-value business activities by providing fit for purpose technology and talent. Our leadership in legal automaton and agile resourcing services is transforming how legal teams drive productivity and commercial outcomes for their organisations.

Transforming legal value dictates a different future – our role as leaders in this revolution means we will forever be shaping that future and leading that change. It is the challenge we thrive on.
