Transforming a traditional industry earns Dentons Canada LLP a national prize

Toronto, ON (July 15, 2020) – The Canadian arm of one of the world’s largest law firms was acknowledged Wednesday for using technology to push the boundaries within a traditionally conservative marketplace. 

Dentons Canada LLP topped five other finalists in the Large Private Sector category of the ITWC 2020 Digital Transform Awards. The impetus for the award came as the company realized that the digital revolution meant clients needed more than just legal services. They required services that address their need to rapidly transform while still managing risk.

Enter Dentons Data, an end-to-end suite of services addressing client needs on a fixed-fee basis. Conceived by Kirsten Thompson, partner and national lead of Dentons’ transformative technologies and data strategy group, the service includes end-to-end privacy and cybersecurity readiness and response, data strategy map, and compliance agility assessment.

“Look around a courtroom and you will see an industry steeped in tradition that is pretty hard to shake off,” says Fawn Annan, President of ITWC. “But Dentons has embraced technology and as a result is driving a better user experience that saves time, money and improves companies speed to innovation.”

Other finalists in the category were:

  • CIBC
  • Samsung Electronics
  • PCL Construction
  • Dream Industrial REIT
  • Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan

The Digital Transformation Award program was launched in 2017 to find successful case studies for organizations looking for examples to follow in their own transformation journey. The program receives nominations from companies and public sector organizations coast to coast. An independent panel of industry experts judges the award winners based on a number of key considerations.
