Fenwick & West Service Innovations

Our Innovative Approach to Client Service

At Fenwick, process improvement has been a core value since our inception: We are fueled by the same passion for innovation that animates the technology and life sciences companies we serve.

We developed technology-assisted discovery to help smaller companies fight well-funded behemoths long before the term “eDiscovery” was coined. Responding to client demand for pricing certainty, we built data-driven pricing and budgeting tools before they became a trend. And we continue to respond to evolving client needs by leading efforts in artificial intelligence and knowledge management.

Not following the status quo is how Fenwick grew to one of the world’s leading law firms.

Here are some of the people, processesand technologieswe implement to drive efficiencies and value.

Custom Trademark Extranets

At Fenwick, we took notice that our trademark clients were frustrated over the lack of products that existed to seamlessly manage their marks, police their brands and interact with counsel on a global basis. So we responded by building one for them.
