Canadian law firm sides with Fulcrum

PC Docs subsidiary Fulcrum (Ottawa, Ontario) has been chosen by Tory Tory DesLauriers & Binnington, a large Canadian business law firm, to provide the foundation for its knowledge sharing technology initiative. Fulcrum's Knowledge Network will be used to access a variety of legal documents in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPerfect, Exchange folders, SQL Server and Lotus Notes databases, legal specific Web Sites and Tory's new intranet. In the last ten years, Tory's has invested "millions of dollars of our own professional time" to document the firm's knowledge-sharing culture, said Tory partner John Cameron. "We have always had a culture which fosters knowledge-sharing in order to provide the most efficient service to our clients." As the firm's databases began to expand in size and complexity, "we felt an increased need for stronger technology to make the best use of our know-how." Tory's employs over 200 lawyers practicing corporate commercial, litigation, tax, insolvency, and environmental law. The legal industry is ripe for reaping the benefits of knowledge management, according to Fulcrum CEO Eric Goodwin, because of its strict demands on documentation and information. "Firms like Torys recognize the powerful impact that carefully managed knowledge assets have on their ability to facilitate document creation and effectively represent clients."
