Raúl López, from ONTIER's IT Department, was recently interviewed by Spanish magazine Computing. Here is the final article in which he provides his insight on the technological scope of the firm. He notes that the legal sector has managed to overcome barriers and keep moving forward in aspects such as methodology, systems and professionalisation. With this interview, he talks about ONTIER's nature from a technological point of view.
Raúl López also talks about the technological measures and processes implemented in the firm in recent years as well as the tools we can use to work at any time and from anywhere. That's why the firm was awarded in 2016 by the economic newspaper Expansión as the most innovative firm.
Raúl López also notes that ONTIER carefully looks after both internal and external communications, as they are considered an essential element in the firm. As he explains, the firm's internal daily newspaper On Time!, which serves as the entrance to the system, helps unify and connect all ONTIER offices around the world.
Security is also very important for ONTIER, especially for those responsible for managing the firm's technological tools. For this reason, Raúl López highlights the 'rigorous compliance with ISO regulations carried out by the firm since it was founded.' In addition, he names the performance of a recent audit as an instrument for measuring the level of security.
Finally, Raúl López highlights the need to find balance between the firm's methodology, new technologies and the commercial mindset of legal professionals. Lawyers need to show a sales-oriented mindset, because now they also have to sell a product,' he says.
For Raúl López, these innovations have turned out successful thanks to the unique vision of Bernardo Gutiérrez de la Roza, CEO, who 'has been key in the search and generation of the new digital DNA of the 21st century lawyer at ONTIER.'
