UK top 50 law firm Travers Smith selects LegalRM’s iCompli for information governance and records management

UK top 50 law firm Travers Smith has selected LegalRM’s iCompli as the its information governance (IG) and records management platform, we can reveal, in a significant European win for the global software provider.

iCompli ensures that appropriate policies are applied to all physical and electronic records, automating their destruction to comply with outside counsel guidelines and regulation such as General Data Protection Regulation and The California Consumer Privacy Act. It also includes tools to create and manage ethical walls.

Travers Smith, a full-service law firm with offices in London and Paris, say they were looking for a cloud IG platform that would allow visibility of all their physical and electronic records through a single view. They needed a system that would help them to simplify the review and disposition cycle, specifically reducing senior lawyer time and increasing exposure to information governance throughout the firm.

David Cassidy, head of central technology at Travers Smith, said: “iCompli offers us visibility of all assets whether they are in our iManage Work DMS, Microsoft 365 or File Shares, in a single view and will considerably streamline the application of our retention and disposition policies. Throughout our rigorous selection process we were particularly impressed with LegalRM’s willingness and proven ability to deliver a solution that meets our exact requirements and that will ultimately help us serve our clients more efficiently and compliantly”.

Shelley Sofianos, records manager at Travers Smith, added: “I have worked with LegalRM previously and knew they could be trusted to deliver on time and on budget, but they surpassed even our expectations, delivering the project successfully ahead of schedule. The project delivery team from LegalRM have been great from project inception to post delivery. We have the confidence that if we need assistance, they are only a call away”.

LegalRM, which is headquartered in the UK, has found particular success in the United States in recent years, winning law firms such as Am Law 200 Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck. In the UK, it counts UK top 50 law firm Shoosmiths among its customers.

Kandis Ridley-Burton, print and digital production manager at Travers Smith said: “The feedback from our colleagues on the usability of iCompli is extremely positive. The initial teams to go live on the system have been impressed with the simplicity of the application and how iCompli’s modern user interface transitions so seamlessly from our iManage Work DMS.”
