Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP was named a finalist in two categories for The American Lawyer Industry Awards: Best Example of Legal Services Innovation award and Regional Litigation Department of the Year award for Georgia. According to The American Lawyer (ALM), this year’s finalists exemplify the exceptional ways the legal industry advises and innovates. Winners will be announced at ALM’s virtual awards ceremony on Jan. 14, 2021.

In the Best Example of Legal Services Innovation category, the Firm was recognized for GTSimplicity™, a suite of solutions created by Greenberg Traurig to help clients navigate complex immigration issues. GTSimplicity™ was devised by Ian R. Macdonald, co-chair of the Immigration & Compliance Practice, and designed to provide a customizable client service platform that delivers information, compiles analytics, stores data, and much more with one primary goal – simplicity.

“The global immigration landscape has shifted rapidly in recent years as multinational companies continue to rely on immigration to get the best talent, and yet commercially available immigration case management technology is outdated,” Macdonald said. “We realized more and more of our clients needed a way to meaningfully integrate immigration data on one single platform in order to compete on a global scale. And so we created GTSimplicity – a single offering for global immigration with white glove service backed by technology and innovation resulting in cost efficiency.” The service manages clients’ workforce challenges in a streamlined manner, provides access to otherwise unavailable data, and enables clients—including both HR professionals and foreign nationals—to easily navigate their immigration programs with complete line of sight to the immigration process.
