Am Law 100 firm BakerHostetler to switch to NetDocuments
In another major U.S. win for NetDocuments, Am Law 100 law firm BakerHostetler is to replace its on premises legacy iManage document management system with NetDocuments’ software-as-a-service platform.
The Cleveland-headquartered firm, which is ranked at 54 in the Am Law 100 with gross revenues of $635m, is the second top 100 U.S. law firm in two months to announce it is switching to NetDocuments, after Orrick made a similar move in July. Orrick, ranked at 31 by the American Lawyer, became and remains NetDocument’s biggest client to date.
Other recent U.S. wins include respected New York law firm Kelley Drye & Warren, which in June said it is swapping out its legacy OpenText DMS for NetDocuments.
Bob Craig, CIO at BakerHostetler, said: “Through our extensive due diligence and evaluation of DMS options, it became clear that the NetDocuments service is leading DMS innovation for the legal market and setting new standards for ease-of-use combined with a world-class security-as-a-service and compliance infrastructure. This is simply not feasible with on-premises or hosted on-premises technology.”
iManage, which was implemented by BakerHostetler in 2003, now has its own subscription-based hybrid cloud DMS offering.
