NetDocuments, the #1 trusted cloud platform for law firms, corporate legal teams and business organisations, today announced that Lee & Thompson selected NetDocuments as its new Document Management System (DMS). Verlata Consulting, one of NetDocuments’ Certified Services Partners, led the implementation and deployment project.
Lee & Thompson is one of the UK’s leading law firms for the media, technology and creative industries. As part of its strategy to create a more modern working environment for its growing team of 100+ staff, Lee & Thompson has embarked on a journey to modernise its IT estate and move to the cloud. After an extensive evaluation of the leading DMS providers to the legal sector, Lee & Thompson selected NetDocuments as it best fits the firm’s hybrid working strategy. This will allow the firm’s staff to become more productive whether in the office, at home, with clients or on the move, while ensuring sensitive documents are accessed and shared in a secure manner, both in the office and on mobile devices.
Simon Boyden, Chief Financial and Operations Officer at Lee & Thompson, commented: “In addition to the open plan and varied workspace we have created, being able to provide a modern working experience is very important when it comes to retaining and attracting legal talent. Activities such as searching for documents can be an unnecessarily time intensive task, so we needed a cloud-based DMS that would make retrieval of and collaboration on documents much more efficient, whilst ensuring the highest levels of security. From all the solutions we evaluated, NetDocuments was the best fit for our firm, giving us an intuitive, easy to use and cloud-native platform which will underpin our business for years to come.”
“As more law firms embrace hybrid working models, it is essential that lawyers can access the information they need quickly and securely,” said Kerri Dearing, VP International Business, NetDocuments. “With NetDocuments, firms can meet lawyers’ needs from wherever they are working, while ensuring the highest level of cloud security. We’re delighted to be working with Lee & Thompson to support their IT modernisation journey and ongoing efforts to deliver exceptional client service.”
