Slaughter and May deploy Atticus on largest London listing in a decade
Atticus is very user-friendly; little to no training was required to bring the team up to speed. Emily Lew Senior Knowledge and Innovation Manager
Slaughter and May’s Innovation team look for tools which complement the cutting edge advice and services the firm delivers to its clients; and Atticus fitted this criteria.
User Friendly Interface
Slaughter and May’s Innovation team recognised that Atticus had the potential to ease the burden of verification processes. With “little to no training”, the firm’s Corporate team were up and running on the platform, and the “new world” approach to verification was underway.
“New World” Verification
With the power of Atticus, the lawyers were able to link the supporting documents directly to each statement in the platform, as well as automatically generate “slick, all-in-one, interactive reports which seamlessly jump between the public document and its verification source material”. The platform automatically updates the verification notes to reflect new drafts of the public document, removing the manual burden of “version control” – continually changing the verification notes to keep up with new versions of the public document.
The software streamlined the verification process and, importantly, made it much quicker for the sponsors’ counsel to perform a comprehensive review of the notes.
THE SUCCESS FOR SLAUGHTER AND MAY
Following an “old world” verification exercise for Haleon’s Capital Markets Day presentation and EMTN Prospectus, the “new world” of Atticus was an exciting prospect for the team and the client.
Alongside an intuitive user interface, Atticus comes with a responsive team that provided Slaughter and May with the necessary training, top tips, and product support throughout the transaction. The platform was flexible and easily adapted to Slaughter and May’s workflow to maximise efficiency and provide an enjoyable user experience.
