legal workflow


Practical legal knowledge and resources to help get your work done.

Know-How is a unique combination of expertly crafted legal workflow and precedents.

Ensure quality outcomes and improve efficiency and productivity in your practice.

What is Know-How?

Available exclusively on Westlaw NZ, Know-How is a new workflow solution from Thomson Reuters which delivers a task oriented step by step guide through legal matters.

Each workflow step combines expertly authored guidance on that step, the identification of tasks related to the step, and seamless integration with relevant checklists and downloadable forms and precedents from Brookers Precedents products on Westlaw NZ.

Used as a productivity tool, Know-How serves as both an aide-mémoire and guide for more senior practitioners, and is ideal for supervising and training less experienced staff.

Intuitive and up-to-date, Know-How will become an indispensable partner in your practice.

The first Know-How products Civil Litigation and Criminal Litigation are available now.

What does Know-How include?

Step by step guide  processes are mapped out into clear and simple steps that efficiently guide you towards the right outcomes.

    Expert guidance - each step is accompanied by expertly written practical assistance and advice.
