Knowledge Management News

November/December, 2015

Welcome to the November/December edition of the Knowledge Management Newsletter

This is the last update for 2015.


Next year we will be reviewing the way we get this information to you all. In January we will be coming round to ask you what you need your updater to include. We will be able to assist on generic legislative and cases updates and also in relation to more information on specific case law, industries or practice areas (whether globally, from the UK or jurisdiction specific). It is a very exciting time so please make the most of this new offering and let us know what you want.


The KM team will also be going back to basics and up dating our house styles and templates. This is in process. Once we have done this we need to lock down templates and house styles so that everyone uses similar templates (with jurisdictional differences taken into consideration).


Finally the new practice areas on Pink Link for Cayman are now ready for testing. We have made a few changes to the Pink Link platform as far as our library of books are concerned and will be rolling this out in the new year for all.


Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Your KM Team
