ZhongYin Lecture Hall: Timeline APP in Investment and M&A – Make It More Transparent
On November 8, 2018, the 13th “ZhongYin
Lecture Hall” was held in the second meeting room of ZhongYin Law Firm. The
lecture was given on the theme “Timeline APP in Investment and M&A – Make
It More Transparent” by Sun Jian, a supervisory
committee member and senior partner of the firm.
lecture consists of three parts. In part 1, starting from the development of
and change in the model of legal service, Sun Jian talked about his personal
discoveries in legal service: while cab-hailing apps have revolutionized the
traditional way of hailing a cab by telephone, the means of legal service is
still basically the same as ten years ago. Through the comparison between yesterday
and today, Sun Jian put forward the core subject of this lecture: how to make
better use of the Internet, APP and other technical means to make the
traditional model of law practice transparent, intuitive, convenient and clear,
thereby better serving the clients and the legal community.
part 2, by combining the case of overseas acquisition of a German listed
company, Sun Jian introduced the concept and product of “timeline”. Through an
app whereby the work “timeline” can be established, updated at any time and
shared in real time, the M&As conducted by the firm are clearly displayed
on a modularized basis. For existing clients, this app enables a simpler and
clearer communication process and improves client satisfaction; for potential clients,
this app provides a clearer view of the nature and expected results of the
service provided; for the firm itself, this app can improve management
efficiency, facilitate practice process accumulation, and promote
institutionalized and systematic learning.
part 3, Sun Jian looked forward to the future development, and put forward some
problems that might arise during the development, including: cost,
visualization, document updating, client communication and so on.
