Choosing to leave a leading legal DMS for SharePoint in Office 365 back in 2017 pushed against the prevailing notions of the legal industry, which were that legal DMS solutions were not only the best options for law firms, but the only viable options. But Greene Espel, a litigation boutique, did not build its reputation by copying its peers. There were many reasons for this departure to SharePoint: management and organization of documents, search capability, platform functionality and support, cost, and the near force of nature that is Microsoft’s cloud: Office 365, and now Microsoft 365, the umbrella platform of which Office 365 is a part.

In this whitepaper Ryan Helmer, IT Manager at Greene Espel PLLP talks about:

  • Leaving the legacy of a leading legal DMS behind.
  • Why Greene Espel PLLP made the switch to Office 365.
  • The benefits and differences in both short and long term for the firm after the switch.
  • The practical bumps along the road of migrating and how to manage them.
  • The financial and organisational benefits of using Office 365 with SharePoint.
