Share Article

XMLAW’s SPxConnect products will provide the platform to increase the availability of critical information and functionality to attorneys and clients.

XMLAW announced today that law firm Troutman Sanders LLP has selected XMLAW’s SPxConnect products and technologies to increase internal communication and collaboration, bring together comprehensive information about clients and matters, and provide up-to-date performance metrics to the firm’s financial partners. SPxConnect will be deployed using the firm’s internal resources.

“When evaluating portal solutions, we found XMLAW’s to be the most comprehensive in enabling us to create powerful SharePoint-based intranet applications,” said Brad Sidwell, the firm’s CIO. “We are creating a very robust portal environment that requires deep integration with our existing systems and with SharePoint. With SPxConnect, we can quickly and efficiently provide complex functionality to the whole firm.”

Troutman Sanders LLP, founded in 1897, was built on a progressive approach to understanding their clients’ business and legal challenges and by a proactive focus on developing successful solutions compatible with client business objectives.

To strengthen their reputation for excellence, a portal solution had to reinforce and support client service by increasing internal efficiencies, providing an easy means to communicate and collaborate, and integrating multiple systems into a single interface.

Even with a strong technical staff, Troutman Sanders LLP found it difficult and time-consuming to provide the type of integration and functionality they envisioned. “In today’s environment, it is important for us to easily and quickly adapt to changing information needs,” said Sidwell. “It was obvious to us that XMLAW products could help us do that and get us to our vision.”

The SPxConnect products and technologies are core to XMLAW’s Enterprise Portal System, a complete turnkey intranet/extranet portal solution for law firms. SPxConnect provides tools for building compelling intranets and extranets integrated with multiple content sources. The Enterprise Portal System is built exclusively on SharePoint and enhances it by providing a comprehensive suite of integration modules, navigation components, data access and integration middleware, and site templates.

“Our Enterprise Portal System is a complete portal solution enabling firms to build dynamic business solutions integrated with existing technology and custom-built applications,” said Rob Saccone, President and CEO of XMLAW. “After their exhaustive evaluation process, we are pleased that Troutman Sanders chose XMLAW as their platform to build on and achieve their vision.”

By focusing on how attorneys, management and administrative personnel use information, the Enterprise Portal System allows firms to leverage the specialized functionality of multiple systems, such as document management, client relationship management and financial management, while delivering both content and application functionality from these systems in a single, consistent interface available in the context of daily tasks.


XMLAW is the leading provider of SharePoint products to the legal industry that enable firms to rapidly deliver high-value, easy-to-use portals designed to streamline operations, grow practices, and differentiate their services. XMLAW provides application integration, enterprise search capability, and legal-specific portal context. Tightly integrated and working in unison with the SharePoint framework, XMLAW’s Enterprise Portal System is the only complete solution on the market enabling firms to deliver all their knowledge sources and application functionality in an easy-to-use, consistent interface to professionals, clients, and administrative and technical staff.
