ProjectCRAFT™, Thompson Coburn’s collaborative web platform that allows companies to easily handle responses to legal citations and garnishments, was recently featured in an article by Missouri Lawyers Weekly. The publication covered ProjectCRAFT™’s ability to provide financial institutions and other businesses with an easier, more cost-effective way to handle legal citations and garnishments through an innovative online platform and a dedicated team of outside counsel.
“Citations and garnishments are a cost center for a bank,” said Todd Rowden, the managing partner of Thompson Coburn’s Chicago office. “It’s not their core business; their core business is to manage their depositors’ funds and to make loans.” As described in Missouri Lawyers Weekly, ProjectCRAFT™ brings predictability and efficiencies to the citation process by allowing bank personnel to upload citations to a secure platform, fill out information about the accountholder and let Thompson Coburn attorneys manage the review and legal processing of the citation.
Todd described ProjectCRAFT™ as one of the most exciting things he’s done in his 30 years as a lawyer. “It’s the way lawyering needs to evolve,” he said.
