- Mayer Brown today announced the launch of its Employment & Benefits app. The innovation, which is Mayer Brown's first multi–functional, mobile application for clients, follows the recent launch of the firm's first ebook – A Global Guide to Restrictive Covenants.
The Employment & Benefits app has been designed to give clients user-friendly access to thought leadership, alerts and contact information on employment and pensions lawyers across Asia, Europe and the US. The app, which is designed for iOS devices (iPhone/iPad), can be downloaded free from the App Store by searching Mayer Brown
. An android version will be available at a later date.
On the app home page there are tabs for "News", "Publications", a global directory – which can be searched by individual and office location and events. Clients can also personalise the app using the "Preferences" tab, which enables users to subscribe to the content that is of most interest to them and uses push technology to deliver update notifications. Finally there is a "Document Editor" tab for storing downloaded publications. Other features included in the app are an events calendar and a dedicated tab with links to all Mayer Brown podcasts – including UK employment law, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, International Arbitration and others.
"Given the amount of web traffic around the globe that now comes from mobile devices we wanted to create an app that would give our clients truly mobile access to material and information that is relevant to them," said Nicholas Robertson, Employment & Benefits partner at Mayer Brown who helped to spearhead the development of the app.
