Use of SharePoint for Legal Department/Division/Firm

  Asked By: Kiel    Date: Apr 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1905

When we initially implemented SharePoint, our legal department wanted
nothing to do with it. Basically, they had a fear of the "intranet"
and was entrenched in a filing system on a network drive. Well, we've
had a few new hires in that area and they are use to a Document
Management System (like Documentum). As such, there is a growing
interest in using SharePoint in some form or fashion.

While I can spout off to the legal department all the good things
SharePoint can do for them, this group will be more easily sold on
using SharePoint if I can present them some white papers or case
studies on the use of SharePoint in the legal industry whether it be a
legal department or a legal firm.

Do you have any resources that I can use to build my case?

I would suggest using the following URL:
http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies and you can sort by industry and
technology. I can make a better SharePoint suggestion for document
imaging, scan and capture than Documentum. If you would like to discuss
this solution to which I am referring I would be more than willing to do
so. This solution is a company that is one of 54 Microsoft Managed
Partners built on the SharePoint platform. Please contact me at your
earliest convenience.
