Disaster Recovery (DR) for Law Firms

  • Legal
  • Professional Services

Our conversations with legal-industry IT leaders point to disaster recovery as an important selling point when law firms engage high-profile, regulatory-compliant clients. A DR plan with adequate sophistication also helps prevent worst-case financial loss and preserve compliance under a wide range of scenarios. The challenge with truly robust DR plans is their scale—affecting every area of a businesses’ technology and process.

If our experience working with law firms may be useful to you as you consider whether to augment your existing DR plan, we invite you to contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Cloud Computing for Law Firms
Business Need

Industry
  • Legal
  • Professional Services

As law firm CIOs have grappled with the promise and potential concerns of cloud computing platforms, a trend has emerged toward hybrid and private models. Public cloud options—though highly cost effective—usually do not offer the level of customization and integration required by law firm clients. However, cloud computing as a concept is unavoidably important. Private and hybrid platforms offer significant benefits relating to sophisticated disaster recovery strategies, computer hardware return on investment, scalability, and uptime maximization.

The challenge—as is often the case regarding law firm software—is integration. In our experience working with large and medium-sized firms, we’ve seen significant cost and performance benefits for firms migrating to cloud-based services on a selective, strategic basis. If you would like to explore current trends and whether one or more of these solutions may benefit your firm, please contact us to arrange a complimentary consultation.

Need to manage Exchange on-premises with multiple integrations?

Exchange/Email Management for Law Firms
Business Need
  • Communication, Mobile, Email
Industry
  • Legal
  • Professional Services

For most law firms, email is the #1 mission-critical application. As firms have explored ways to improve performance, many have explored outsourcing Exchange to the cloud but, in the case of most larger firms, found that unworkable. One reason is that FileSite and other legal document management systems integrate with Exchange at the server level. Another is simply the sheer size of email inboxes. Under these specialized circumstances, the question is how to manage Exchange on-premises both cost-effectively and, critically, without periodic downtime. Another key focus area is Exchange 2013 upgrades and integrations.

In our conversations with those leading the IT agenda at law firms, we often discuss the competitive landscape in the legal industry. One key factor is email system reliability, flexibility, and integration with legal software applications. Our clients have benefited from our perspective on technology approaches that help keep law firms competitive, rather than weighing down profits per partner.

If you think you may benefit from our thoughtful approach and communications expertise (Microsoft Gold Competency in Communications), we invite you to call or email to schedule a complimentary consultation.

    When facing the technical challenges of civil litigation electronic discovery, IT and legal managers can help their firms avoid slipping into a reactive mode by thoughtful planning and the right tools. Without that preparation, eDiscovery can force dramatic increases in time, personnel, legal risks, and expense.

    We help organizations implement effective technology and policies for document creation, retention, search, and retrieval. Our clients preserve content while still enabling people to continue working, use search tools, and review and export content.

    eDiscovery presents substantial demands for organizations caught off guard. To explore possibilities that may meet your needs, give us a call or send an email to schedule a complimentary consultation.

    We implemented Exchange Server 2013 due to its decreased reliance on disk performance, its simplification of roles, and its better integration with Office and Outlook 2013.  This allowed us to have fewer servers overall, while dedicating more servers to hosting mailboxes and handing Unified Messaging traffic than in Exchange Server 2010.  In addition, Exchange Server 2013 better supports the customer’s mobile devices due to the updated Outlook Web App.
