Case Study

Global Law Firm Creates Matter-Centric View With FileTrail

On our webinar this month,  we had the privilege to sit down with one of our global law firm clients, Jason Mervyn, Director of Technology and Business Solutions at Gowlings Lafleur Henderson LLP (aka Gowlings). Jason has been with Gowlings for 19 years and he was an instrumental part of the selection team that chose FileTrail. Gowlings is one of Canada’s largest law firms with 700 attorneys, multiple offices and an international presence. Gowlings uses an Intranet Portal called REx Online to manage client matters. It was developed internally to provide a matter-centric practice management platform that integrates document management, time and billing and records management.

Like many law firms, Gowlings needed a physical records management solution with open API’s and flexible enough to easily integrate with existing software platforms (document management - OpenText, time and billing - Aderant, etc.) the firm already had in place.

“With FileTrail, we have found a vendor that took the time to understand our vision, a product that was easy to integrate with our industry-leading practice management system (REx Online) and a partner to guide us into RFID tracking technology, “ said Mervyn.
