Am Law 50 firm orrick selects NetDocuments’ native cloud-based document and email management platform
NetDocuments, the leading Software-as-a-Service document and email management (DMS) provider for law firms and corporate legal departments, announced today that the global law firm Orrick has made the decision to replace its on-premises DMS with NetDocuments, the go-to modern native cloud technology platform for improved security, usability, mobility, and data storage flexibility.
Orrick focuses on advising sector leaders in technology, energy and infrastructure and finance, and is recognized as one of the most innovative law firms. “NetDocuments will provide improved features and functionality,” said Craig Dean, Orrick’s CTO, “but just as importantly it will enable our global teams to collaborate on a modern technology platform that will provide our lawyers and our clients the highest levels of data security, built-in mobility, and data storage flexibility.”
NetDocuments’ flexible ‘geo-aware’ storage architecture will enable the firm to store content where it chooses, while providing a seamless experience to end-users who can access the same modern service from wherever they are around the globe. “NetDocuments will also support significant improvements in the ways we directly share information and collaborate with our clients,” noted Justin Cooper, an Orrick partner and chair of the firm’s Technology Committee.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Orrick to the growing list of sophisticated firms adopting the NetDocuments platform and contributing to our customer community,” said Matt Duncan, CEO at NetDocuments. “The rapid growth we’re seeing is fuelled in a large part by client-driven demands for improved security, as well as end-user demands for a modern service that works the way they do today.”
NetDocuments’ technology architecture and flexible storage options solve key data sovereignty and information governance concerns for global firms such as Orrick. “The ability to separate our native cloud application from the actual storage layer of content enables international firms like Orrick to solve long-standing issues around data security and data sovereignty, while also achieving a global ‘one-firm view’ of firm matters and content – something very difficult to achieve with the traditional DMS technology stack,” concluded Duncan.
