Legal Overview

The recent economic turbulence has accelerated the transformation from the practice of law into the business of law.  Law firms must continually evaluate and update their business processes in order to remain competitive. One huge barrier firm’s face in meeting this challenge is transforming the firm’s information assets from reactive to responsive. Most firms are sitting on huge piles of data that they can’t find or use. This is rigid, limiting and costing them revenue.

On the other hand, a responsive firm can have information repositories that are huge but work as a single source of truth. Interoperable, and empowering. A responsive firm has information confidence and understands its environment –its market, its customers, its problems and its opportunities.  – in real time. A responsive firm allows ideas to lead to innovation to lead to growth and scale.

Every matter has a large information shadow. In fact more than 80% of Enterprise Information is unstructured, but to date, most investment has been in structured information management such as Time and Billing and Litigation Support Systems.  This was mostly because firms lacked the ability to comprehensively manage unstructured matter data. But now they can and they must – there’s incredible value hidden there.

OpenText can help. OpenText builds Enterprise Information Management (EIM) systems that turn firm information into an innovative firm. EIM is a set of purpose built technologies and practices that optimize the value of information for law firms while minimizing its risks. OpenText EIM gives you control over the firm’s information enterprise, creating the opportunity for unlimited growth and responsiveness.

Customer Stories

Only one solution could meet our stringent requirements for providing a full audit history of every item, with version control, in a secure environment—OpenText Document Management, eDOCS Edition.

Morten Falch, CIO, Advokatfirmaet Selmer DA

Out of everything that we looked at, the OpenText solution was the only one that really fulfilled all the requirements that we had and that was a fully realized, mature, ready-to-go product at the time we needed it. It's been a very good fit for us.

David Walker, MCP Manager, Development & Programming, Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, PC.

The biggest benefit for Balch & Bingham is to be able to see all the activity and all the documents for a particular client matter, as well as the people involved. From a management standpoint, if someone leaves the firm, we have a historical presence in the system where we can see the activity. When lawyers leave the law firm, all of the information is retained in one, easy-to-search location.

Rhonda Lewis, Senior Systems Application Analyst, Balch & Bingham, LLP

OpenText eDOCS DM was a clear choice for us. I was very impressed with its backend, the way that they’ve structured the servers and the software. We have literally not had one hiccup on that system. It has worked flawlessly...It’s very stable.

Rod Sagarsee, CIO, Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione

We’ve been deploying OpenText technologies now for 12 years. We’re happy with OpenText and that’s where we’re staying.

Ivaylo Nikolov, Director of IT at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg in Toronto.

This new version will help legal professionals throughout theCouncil of Europe States to searchthe Court’s case-law more rapidly and more efficiently.

Sir Nicolas Bratza, The President of the ECHR

Without a doubt, the skills, knowledge, and capabilities of OpenText people and products have had a positive effect on Mewburn Ellis. We feel a part of a community and in OpenText we have truly found a partnership that works

James May, Head of IT, Mewburn Ellis LLP

By having all client information in a matter centric system, such as eDOCS, it will reduce the risk of us not being able to locate critical client information when it is important to represent that client.

Paul C. Wittekind, Director of Information Technology Services at Porzio.

We decided that the best approach would be to leave the plumbing, which is OpenText eDOCS DM, in the back end and let it continue to do the job that it does so well, which is managing the documents, security, version control, etcetera. Keep that in the back end, and then simply expose the documents in collaborative workspaces in the SharePoint front end.

Venky Srinivasan, Director, Technology at Stikeman Elliott
