Box Enables IT Transformation for Leading Law Firms, Adds New Consulting and eDiscovery Partnerships
LOS ALTOS, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Box (News - Alert) today announced that leading law firms DLA Piper, Hinshaw &
Culbertson, Perkins Coie and Stoel Rives have chosen Box to manage,
access and share information across devices. Box also unveiled a new
partnership with legal systems integrator and consultant HBR Consulting
and integrations with Recommind and Logikcull, making it easier for the
company's growing legal customer base to enable eDisovery and securely
store, manage and analyze content in the cloud.
"Legal IT leaders are using cloud technologies to transform their IT
infrastructures by centralizing content management and improving
internal and external collaboration without losing control over users
and content," said Whitney Bouck, general manager of enterprise at Box.
"By integrating the Box platform with leading legal services offerings,
we're providing the best way for legal customers to make business
critical information readily available to attorneys and easily sharable
The law firms moving to Box represent a diverse set of use cases. DLA
Piper, the world's largest law firm, is leveraging Box to improve file
sharing security gaps and replace unsanctioned tools with a secure
end-user friendly collaboration tool. Additionally, through Box and Intapp's
partnership announced last year, DLA is using Intapp's Integration
Builder to integrate Box with HP Worksite and enable its mobile
workforce to be productive from anywhere, while still protecting IP.
Both Hinshaw & Culbertson and Stoel Rives rely on Box for external
collaboration between hospitals and healthcare providers who need access
to patient information for legal cases. Ryan Schlunz, CIO at Stoel Rives
"Our clients need outside of the box thinking for enterprise content
management, with inside of the box security applied. Box helps deliver
us both." Schlunz continued, "We believe secure and reliable access to
enterprise content - made available anytime and anywhere - is a critical
competitive advantage for us - Box makes that possible."
Tom Proctor, litigation support manager at Hinshaw & Culbertson added
"Security is our top priority as we often deal with content that's both
under HIPAA and eDiscovery requirements. With Box, we can ensure that
our attorneys can securely and efficiently collaborate with hospitals
and healthcare providers on patient information for cases."
Leveraging cloud technologies, legal IT leaders are efficiently and
collaboratively with tools that truly support the way they want to work.
For example, Perkins Coie is using the Box API to develop a connector
that enables users to drag and drop content to and from internal
document repositories and Box. The rich API provided by Box enables
Perkins Coie to reduce the friction between systems of record and
engagement, thereby reducing end-user frustration.
"The current process to move content from legacy systems to Box
oftentimes requires many clicks and necessitates the end-user having
custom software installed on their computer," said Gavin Gray CIO at
Perkins Coie. "By creating a connector that enables users to browse
legacy systems using an HTML-5 compatible browser and then drag and drop
content from the browser into Box, we are able to reduce the divide
between the two worlds."
Box and HBR Consulting
Box is announcing a new relationship with HBR Consulting, a leader in
consulting to the legal sector with more than three decades of
experience helping law firms and law departments plan, implement and
measure business operations, information and technology. Box and HBR
Consulting will work together to offer custom-built solutions for law
firms looking to transform their IT infrastructure with cloud-based
storage and collaboration tools.
Box and Recommind Integration
Through a custom-built connector, Box seamlessly integrates with
Axcelerate, Recommind's leading eDiscovery review and analysis platform,
to enable organizations to collect, analyze and review information
stored in the cloud. This new integration allows law firms and corporate
legal departments to quickly and efficiently handle eDiscovery, data
management and information governance.
"Our integration with Box reflects the massive trend in the enterprise
to leverage cloud-based storage and collaboration solutions," said Bob
Tennant, CEO, Recommind. "We are pleased to offer organizations with
cloud-based information the ability to utilize Recommind's
industry-leading machine learning and analytics for eDiscovery."
Box and Logikcull Integration
With the Box to Logikcull one-click integration, Box users will be able
to seamlessly transfer documents and metadata from Box into Logikcull
for the purposes of discovery and investigations. Logikcull's cloud
discovery and integrations platform directly integrates with Box APIs,
eliminating multiple manual steps and allows users to easily search,
collect and preserve ESI (News - Alert) maintained in Box as part of litigation or
regulatory matter. Additionally, Logikcull's Culling Intelligence engine
automatically categorizes Box documents into smart search filters like
languages, email domains, custodians, and document types. Using these
smart filters, legal teams can quickly get to the facts of their case
and narrow their search to the right documents for review.
