Goldsmith Williams hosts Chinese delegation

Goldsmith Williams, the Liverpool based law firm, has hosted a delegation of Chinese business people who visited the law firm to analyse its use of advanced data management technology.

The delegation of 19 business people from Sinopec, China’s largest producer of petrochemicals, spent three days with Goldsmith Williams from the 10th to 12th of March, analysing ways in which the law firm has been able to use its state-of-the-art technology to enhance case management and workflow in the business.

The delegates not only watched demonstrations of the law firms’ GW Live case management system being used, but were also able to test the system themselves.

John Jones, director for learning and development and senior property lawyer at Goldsmith Williams, says: “This is the second time we have welcomed a delegation from China to our offices in Liverpool. We were able to share a lot of experiences and information and I believe that the management teams from both Sinopec and Goldsmith Williams gained from the 3 days we have spent together. It’s good to be able to look beyond both the legal profession and our own shores at industry best practices and it is an experience which has undoubtedly enriched both companies.”

The Chinese visitors from Sinopec are on a three month fact find visit to the UK.
