Ventures is an innovative new business, designed to help develop new ideas, prioritise specific R&D priorities and to nurture early prototype services.

How we can help

We have a market leading reputation for providing expert advice and practical software solutions.

Our approach - an introductory session

Our approach is distinctively collaborative. We start by sitting down around the table, discussing innovation in legal services, and explaining the different approaches you can take. We want you to understand the role research & development can have in developing solutions, as well as to highlight the opportunities for innovation and growth it can present.

Our approach - an innovation workshop

It’s not enough to just pay lip-service to R&D. We want to help you identify the best opportunities on the horizon - as well as to prepare for the risks that are coming. Our innovation workshop gives you an overview of innovation trends (including the priorities we’re working to internally) and helps you to identify areas of interest or relevance. Our workshops can tackle a broad sweep of industry changes, or a specific area of focus (for example, AI). Most importantly they’re directed by you, to get you the results and information you need.

Our approach - creative brainstorming

A whole day workshop where you bring a particular problem and we use our own techniques to help you think through the problem in a creative way. This could include using our specifically designed methods and models as well as sector and service expertise, drawn from across DWF.
