Developed in conjunction with clients at the forefront of the property and financial services sectors, Gadens Portfolio Solutions (GPS) is an evolving suite of online business-to-business, legal analysis and management tools that offer clients an advanced method of conducting and managing legal work flows.

Grant Scott-Hayward, Gadens Chief Executive Officer said:
“Our firm has incredibly innovative people. Not only does this mean we invest in and develop technology solutions together with our clients to meet their needs, but our people constantly come up with smart ideas for clients that enhance outcomes for them. Many of our property and financial services clients for example, use GPS on a daily basis as an intuitive interface for managing legal matters, analysing portfolio performance, managing potential risks and identifying trends across the country. This reflects our unwavering focus to help our clients achieve their goals, including enhancing what their customers experience – whether this is through the quality of our legal expertise in the most complex of situations, or even in circumstances best served by the commercial benefits that GPS offers”.
A major component of these user-friendly solutions is the fast, efficient and cost effective processing of legal work flows.
“Our GPS suite offers clients a number of other benefits, including accessibility to real-time information on the status of a legal matter, proactive management of a client or users’ portfolio, better alignment of processes, document exchange, trend analysis, live reporting and customised reports – all of which support a high-quality, cost-effective legal service in a secure environment. An added bonus is that the work is done electronically, further reducing the cost of doing business”, concludes Mr. Scott-Hayward.
