Homburger is a Swiss business law firm providing advice and representation in significant transactions, dispute situations and complex advisory assignments to enterprises and entrepreneurs in a national and international context. A total of 300 employees make use of the document management system on a daily basis.
Flavio Romerio, Partner at Homburger, comments: “The problem we had with our previous document management system was that it did not integrate emails. Nowadays most client communication is done via email. So in order to create a single file containing all the documents relevant to a certain case, we needed a new document management system that would be able to store emails as well.”
Although Homburger maintained a long list of criteria throughout their search for a new solution, two things were of crucial importance to them. Romerio: “Our ideal document management system would suit critical requirements central in a law firm such as security. Moreover we were looking for a solution that could integrate our specific email application Lotus Notes. We narrowed it down to five possible solutions that met all our requirements, but eventually settled for iManage Work because of its overall impression. It seemed the most mature and advanced to us.”
