Share Article

Top 50 Law firm Dickinson Dees LLP today announced a business venture with London-based software producer Secoda Risk Management Limited to deliver technology and knowledge solutions to the rapidly growing Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) market.

Secoda's policy and compliance solution RuleSafe enables organisations to rapidly create and deploy a framework for communicating internal policies, standards and procedures to staff and verifying that those staff have read, understood and accepted their compliance responsibilities.

Under the terms of the agreement Dickenson Dees and Secoda will promote each other's services to prospective clients and will collaborate on the development of expert content in the form of 'Knowledge Modules' of ready-made policies and guidance linked to today's most important legal, governance and compliance requirements.

Andrew Scott, a partner with Dickinson Dees who has overseen this deal, explained: "This is a really excellent opportunity to work with a successful technology provider having huge potential. In a nutshell, Dickinson Dees will be selling the legal services which accompany the RuleSafe program. This way we will provide a complete solution to our mutual clients."

"With newspaper headlines featuring stories of ever-increasing breaches, fines and other business impacts on a daily basis, there is clearly a growing need for solutions that can rapidly communicate targeted information to an organisation's employees in a form they can quickly understand and sign up to", according to Adrian Wright, Secoda's Managing Director. "Our venture with Dickinson Dees is therefore an exciting and timely one. Together we can deliver the best quality guidance using the most flexible and functional technology solution to our mutual clients in all sectors."
