Tuesday, January 14th, 2020 - IRIQ Law

Australia's first Artificial Intelligence Employee Legal Assistant Available 24 hours a day 7 days a week!

IRIQ Law has partnered with Blackbook AI to design and launch Riqi following extensive testing over the last 12 months.

Riqi is available on IRIQ Law's website 24/7 to assist employees who are having difficulties at work in regard to unfair dismissal, unlawful terminations, workplace bullying, workplace discrimination, underpayments and general protections.  IRIQ Law Managing Legal Practitioner Director Theresa Moltoni says that Riqi will assist law firms to provide a richer experience for clients, efficiency and cost savings with a careful regard for the proper exercise of professional obligations built in to each process. 

Riqi will ask relevant questions, seek information and provide an opportunity for employees to upload relevant documents.  For a modest fee, Riqi will advise the employee whether they have a likely case, warn the employee about how long they have to file a claim and arrange for someone to contact them the next business day.

Behind the scenes, Riqi will capture the data and send the required information to a solicitor so that the employee’s file can be opened efficiently, and the matter progressed.  Riqi will automate a great deal of the information collection required and the solicitor will then have an opportunity to address any further requirements and ensure their professional obligations are met. Chief Executive Officer of Blackbook, Thuy Lam explains how the careful analysis of legal flows broken down to the lowest level, can have a positive impact on the future of artificial intelligence in the legal profession.

Following the launch of Riqi, IRIQ Law and Blackbook AI have plans to further integrate client file creation with Practice software, streamlining file openings, cost disclosure obligations and file management.  IRIQ Law and Blackbook will also be looking to work with other law firms who are interested in utilizing Riqi’s unique abilities.

Contact Profile


Established by Theresa Moltoni in 2008, IRIQ was initially focused on assisting clients to get their Agreements in place prior to the Fair Work Act coming into effect.  IRIQ was overwhelmed with requests that kept the team in a frenzied flurry of activity for some months.

In her previous Corporate HR & IR experience, Theresa found it difficult to find practitioners to assist her, who were able to link the objectives & principles of good business strategy to effective execution in the Workplace.  So she modelled IRIQ on being able to do just that for businesses, whether they be large Corporates or SMEs.

Over time, IRIQ spoke at industry events around Australia about the new legislation and practical strategies that would assist businesses to grow.  Each new speaking engagement brought new clients who have maintained a mutual loyalty with IRIQ over the years since.

In 2011, jIRIQ grew further as the IRIQ team embarked on the writing of “Industrial Relations 101TM“.  A training program designed to close the skills gap for IR Practitioners & Operational Managers.  After 11 months, the first program was released in November that year.  It was a great success & in 2014 IRIQ set about offering this program online so that practitioners from all over Australia and indeed the world, can enjoy the program.  The online program partners with a practical intensive day which ensures an opportunity to put those important skills into practice through a series of real life role plays.

Since moving into the Brisbane CBD in 2011, IRIQ has increased its number of Practitioners and opened its Perth Office in early 2015.  IRIQ boasts an impressive, experienced, street savvy, team of practitioners that can handle just about anything.

In 2014 IRIQ launched its Balloting services, leading the way in SMS and online technologies to provide transparent and professional balloting services from the IRIQ team that understands the requirements of the Fair Work Act and Agreement making.

In 2017 IRIQ became an Incorporated Legal Practice expanding its service offering to provide both legal and non-legal services, it introduced the new trading name IRIQ Law.

There is no doubt that IRIQ’s success has been hastened by the team’s successful track record in delivering innovative and considered workplace legal services.   For this IRIQ clearly holds a respected reputation amongst its peers and across the industry sectors in which they operate.

IRIQ Law strives to offer our clients the highest level of expertise and service. We endeavour to position ourselves as thought leaders in our fields of expertise, delivering with excellence, every time. We aim to deliver practicable outcomes for our clients that solves their problems and positions them to realise their potential. ##
