FTI Consulting announces that the firm’s Technology segment has entered into a partnership with NetDocuments, a trusted cloud content platform for legal professionals. This partnership will allow FTI Technology’s Corporate Legal Operations practice to provide clients with more flexible and integrated native cloud-based solutions for core legal department functions, such as document and content management.
“Legal operations professionals have a long list of priorities for the coming year and are looking for support across areas including strategic transformation, technical implementations and change management,” said Wafik Guirgis, a Senior Managing Director and global Co-Leader of FTI Technology’s Corporate Legal Operations practice. “To better serve the needs of our clients in each of these areas, and as an extension of the ongoing strategic expansion of our corporate legal operations offerings, we’re developing partnerships with leading solutions providers like NetDocuments. Working across the legal technology ecosystem, FTI Technology supports clients in improving their return on technology investments and accelerating adoption of tools that improve overall efficiency and empower collaboration and knowledge sharing.”
NetDocuments helps corporate legal teams establish efficient, secure access to content, automate document-driven workflows and, based on its cloud-native architecture and open application programming interfaces (“APIs”), support more effective integrations with the solutions upon which large corporations increasingly rely. As part of the strategic partnership, NetDocuments and FTI Technology will help corporate legal teams achieve data-driven returns on investment through the design, execution and optimisation of flexible information management workflows that improve productivity, streamline collaboration and transform cumbersome document processes.
Matthew Hemmert, General Counsel and Privacy Officer at NetDocuments, added, “Corporate legal teams today are focused on implementing solutions that push workflow and automation into everyday activities, often across multiple systems. This is part of a bigger push to leverage cloud technology spanning the complete document lifecycle, from document creation and review to automation and signatures, all natively available within one secure platform. This technology advantage combined with FTI Technology’s corporate legal operations expertise and trusted partner status makes this collaboration very exciting.”
