Business Challenge

Your law firm is going through tremendous change. Clients demand lower costs and more efficient legal services. Attorneys want their documents — yesterday. You’re challenged to do more with less and it’s only getting worse. The information keeps growing and there are not enough hours in the day — you have to manage what matters.

When you’re managing multiple vendors for multiple services in multiple locations, you have a heavy administrative burden. It’s also difficult to lower costs and increase consistency. As the paper and electronic records pile up, you’ll struggle to know what to keep, in what format, and what to get rid of — and quickly answer attorney requests. On top of all of this, you still have to address your obligations to keep client and firm data secure and confidential.

What If You Could...

  • Simplify administration and lower costs?
  • Manage volumes of client and firm information so you can quickly access it?
  • Comply with ethical and legal obligations to safeguard client and firm information?

Manage Records with Confidence

Iron Mountain Law Firm Solutions enable you to consolidate information management services for all of your offices for greater cost efficiencies. You can also manage the growing volume of information — and safeguard it to meet your legal and ethical obligations. With our records management services and best practices, your firm can:

  • Keep it simple by consolidating all of your information management services, across all locations, with one vendor.
  • Take control by keeping only what’s required, so you can quickly access it and securely destroy or digitize the rest.
  • Make it safe by protecting confidential firm and client information, so you can meet your obligations.
