In a South East UK win for NetDocuments, leading Essex law firm Birkett Long has selected its document management platform as part of an ongoing digital transformation programme.

Birkett Long is a 185-person firm with offices in Chelmsford, Colchester and Basildon. The firm has 11 separate legal practices covering intellectual property through to agricultural law.  In addition, Birkett Long also provides independent financial advice and HR services.  As part of Birkett Long’s digital transformation programme, the firm was looking for a document management platform that would support its legal, financial and HR businesses.

Mark Davidson, Director of IT at Birkett Long, commented: “We have been undergoing an extensive IT transformation over the last 18 months, with moving away from traditional paper-based ways of working being a big focus.  As a diverse and highly regulated business, it is imperative that we have an agile and customisable document management platform that meets our digital ambitions, which have been accelerated as a result of COVID-19. NetDocuments ticks all the boxes in terms of industry expertise combined with a secure and flexible cloud-based platform that requires very little IT management.”

Nikec, a global legal services and consulting provider, will lead the implementation and deployment project as one of NetDocuments Certified Services Partners.
