And we're off with the first of many stories from LegalTech New York, starting with an exclusive preview of some news from IntApp…

IntApp Inc, provider of the most adopted confidentiality management, time capture and application integration software products for law firms, has just announced record growth figures. Presently IntApp serves over 230 customers, ranging in size from 50 to 3750 lawyers, including 63% of the 100 largest US firms as ranked by The American Lawyer.

In the past twelve months IntApp has added 48 new law firm customers and licensed 73 additional products to existing law firm customers Recent IntApp customer wins include Russell Kennedy, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, Fishburns, Wiggin, Lewis Silkin, Miles & Stockbridge and Burr & Forman. In addition in 2011, IntApp grew internal headcount by over 40%, with significant investments in R&D, client support, professional services and account management staff.

Next week IntApp will also be formally announcing two new wins (but you can read them first here, right now)…

McKenna Long & Aldridge, an international law firm with 475 lawyers and public policy advisors, is now using IntApp Wall Builder to enforce ethical screens and manage information security for client confidential matters across the firm.

“Given increasing calls for confidentiality driven by clients and other factors, our firm sought to replace a legacy software tool, which IT had been using to enforce limited security in our OpenText DM5 document management system, with a more modern application that could automate the entire confidentiality lifecycle and provide our less technical staff with a user interface they could manage themselves,” said Paul Hurdle, Senior Counsel, Head of New Matter Intake & Conflicts, McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP. “We looked at several options and quickly recognized that IntApp was the industry expert and that Wall Builder was the most mature product. Today, with our intake and risk staff using Wall Builder to create, manage and report on confidentiality policies across the firm, we know we made the right choice.”

“From our perspective, it’s clear why so many firms have chosen IntApp Wall Builder – the product was easy to weave into our existing intake, screening and compliance reporting processes and has significantly enhanced our internal confidentiality practices,” said Dave Scarzafava, IT Financial Systems Manager, McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP. “We were particularly pleased with the skill and speed with which the IntApp services team implemented the product. Because of their past experience at other firms, IntApp was able to migrate the existing security rules from our legacy security tool and import them into Wall Builder without a hitch or hiccup.”

“Our firm sees tremendous opportunity to improve profitability and lawyer quality of life by automating time capture,” said Ken Adams, Chief Information Officer, Miles & Stockbridge. “We conducted peer reference checks and detailed evaluations of two products and quickly confirmed that IntApp Time Builder offered unrivaled data matching intelligence and ease of use, both of which are critical to lawyer adoption and success with this class of software.”
