Email management disruptor ZERØ and leading legal management consulting firm Fireman & Company have entered a strategic partnership in order to help deliver productivity, compliance, and profitability solutions to large law firms. The partnership will leverage Fireman’s deep knowledge management and change management expertise with ZERØ’s modernized email management productivity technology.

ZERØ automates the administrative processes of email management and filing into document management systems for iOS mobile devices and desktop. Using ZERØ, lawyers can improve their billing hygiene and increase their time capture by ensuring that emails are filed and that time spent on emails, particularly on the move, is accounted for. 

Ryan Steadman, chief revenue officer at ZERØ said: “ZERØ’s solutions are important for law firms in this new work-from-anywhere reality. ZERØ helps law firms maximize profitability and productivity at this critical juncture by minimizing the wasted time lawyers spend on low-value tasks, by fostering self-sufficiency in the face of the imperative to do more with less, and by engendering compliance with email and time capture policies. This partnership with Fireman & Company will create another layer of modernization to a business process that hasn’t changed much in over a decade.”

“Fireman & Company has deep experience in helping law firms move beyond traditional practices to improve law firm business performance,” said Joshua Fireman, Fireman & Company’s founder and president. “ZERØ’s technology provides us with the opportunity to bring AI to one of the critical issues facing firms today—profitability.”
