Leading independent Finland law firm Borenius has gone live on the iManage Cloud and according to iManage, Borenius is the first law firm in Finland to adopt the cloud for its work product management.

A long time iManage customer, Borenius, which has offices in New York, London, and St Petersburg, recently upgraded to iManage Work 10 for document and email management. It started the move to the cloud before the summer and the entire group went live in early September.

“The knowledge stored in iManage Cloud is the heart of this business, so it’s essential to have an easy-to-use platform that empowers us to manage and unlock the knowledge from our documents in a way that is stable, scalable, and secure,” said Niko Jakobsson, general counsel and development director at Borenius. “iManage understands how law firms work at a deep level. They are constantly making improvements in core products and technology integrations that make our attorneys more productive and improve client service.”

Borenius has also adopted document threat detection solution iManage Threat Manager as an extra layer of protection: Threat Manager uses adaptive behavioural modelling and machine learning to continuously safeguard against cyber threats and data loss. “It’s important that our clients have full confidence that we are keeping their data safe. iManage Cloud provides a more secure and robust hosting environment than we could build ourselves, while also providing built in business continuity, so that we can service our clients without interruption,” said Jakobsson.

Jakobson was given the additional role of general counsel in May 2019, leading Borenius’ compliance and business risk procedures as well as its technology and business development. He has worked as part of the management team at Borenius since 2016.

Borenius worked with local iManage partner Ascertus Limited on its move to iManage Cloud. Nearly 230 users spanning four countries, across all five of Borenius’ offices, now have access to the iManage Cloud platform.
