Managed IT Services for Law Firms

Improved productivity, business continuity, automation and client data protection

Secure reliable IT solutions for Law Firms

Running a law firm isn’t as easy as it once was. Three factors melded together to make IT a crucial component of a law firms profitability:

1. Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure extending the rules of discovery to electronic information
2. Massive growth of electronically stored information (ESI)
3. Reliance on case management software

IT is mission critical to law firms, yet because IT is a cost center and not a revenue generator, investments are limited. Your law firm deserves professional management that will improve business results and profitability. A well-managed IT infrastructure becomes invisible when managed properly. Also, there are many advantages such as automated processes, better resource management, decline in risk of errors and increased transparency. Law firms are realizing that technology is critical to the success of their business and by not keeping up they are creating risks for their clients and their practice. Consider the below statistics.
