Commercial law firm Lupton Fawcett LLP is investing in an email and document management system, iManage Work, and has selected Ascertus Limited to implement the solution, as part of a major technology overhaul initiative. Lupton Fawcett expects to gain intelligent, secure, and easily-scalable document management capabilities that will play a key role in enabling the firm to meet its business efficiency, enhanced client service, and profitability targets. Once deployed, the solution will be available to more than 250 users.

Ascertus provides document and information lifecycle management solutions to law firms in the U.K. and across Europe.

Lupton Fawcett chose Ascertus for its experience and expertise, and for its reputation in the legal sector. In addition, iManage Work filled every business requirement as highlighted in the firm’s "blueprint" of desired document management capability.

A solid and future-proof technology foundation is critical to Lupton Fawcett’s growth plans, which is why the firm is making a sizable investment in IT, including software and hardware, said James Hood, head of ICT at Lupton Fawcett LLP. Hood added that technology will be critical in this next phase and Ascertus and iManage Work fit the company’s imperative for the document management function.

Through iManage Work, Lupton Fawcett will institute best practice processes for email and document management across the firm’s offices in Leeds, York, and Sheffield. The firm will benefit from sophisticated capability to meet the security challenges of today by monitoring and enforcing internal policy, fully supported by an audit trail. Additionally, the firm will be able to leverage adaptive behavioural modelling and machine learning to establish advanced safeguards for continuous protection of sensitive data in the organisation.

Ascertus will integrate iManage Work with the firm’s new workflow and case management system, to enable Lupton Fawcett to optimize both functionalities for seamless operation as well as for productivity and business efficiency gains.
