Leading law firm uses FT Headline API watchlists to boost productivity and save time
Clyde & Co is a global law firm providing legal services to clients in more than ten sectors including insurance, transportation and infrastructure. Grouped by practice area, team or as individuals, stakeholders are sent daily emails grouping together relevant news articles selected by the information team.
The challenge for the information team was the time-consuming task of aggregating and cross checking 200+ different topics against FT.com content. Identifying and distributing relevant FT.com content was taking several hours each day and the information team were losing significant time that could have been spent more efficiently.
FT worked in collaboration to pioneer an API headline service. This enabled the information team to create saved searches based on their areas of interest and expertise. Through the implementation of this bespoke API, the team is now notified when there is content matching their criteria, and have an easy mechanism to transfer this into email and various other formats.
