LONDON (29 January 2019) — HighQ is pleased to announce that Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP has adopted the HighQ platform to enhance the way they deliver legal services to clients around the globe. Eversheds Sutherland is equipping attorneys, staff and clients with the HighQ platform to improve collaboration, productivity and communication firmwide.
Eversheds Sutherland was recognised by BTI Consulting Group as one of the top 20 law firms in the United States for technology in its 2019 Legal Innovation and Technology Outlook report.
“We want to be the legal practice that comes to mind when clients think about leveraging technology to the fullest extent,” said Jeff Kirksey, director of legal technology for Eversheds Sutherland (US). “As we build a technology roadmap that aligns with our clients’ needs, HighQ stood out as a highly recommended industry leader with exceptional expertise in security and support.”
In building its technology roadmap, Eversheds Sutherland evaluated a number of platforms but landed on the HighQ platform because it meets a variety of its objectives and represents a cost savings.
“There’s no reason to deploy multiple specialty products to handle a complex project when HighQ delivers the same high-level services in one platform,” Kirksey said. “We can take full advantage of HighQ’s capabilities to produce a cost-effective method to ensure we continue to meet the needs of the business and our clients in terms of collaboration, data visualisation, document automation and more.”
Eversheds Sutherland’s partnership with HighQ is part of the organisation’s broader commitment to provide quality, innovative and consistent legal services around the globe from its 68 offices in 34 countries.
“We are proud to partner with Eversheds Sutherland for numerous reasons, not the least of which is the fact that they are recognised as one of the world’s leaders in innovating the way in which legal services are delivered in today’s technology-driven business environment,” Don Fuchs, vice president of legal sales North America at HighQ said. “We continue to be impressed by their creativity and commitment to integrating new technologies that not only meet but set the standard in our industry.”
