Troutman Sanders LLP, an international law firm with more than 650 lawyers, providing a full spectrum of legal services across more than 50 practice groups, uses IntApp Wall Builder to manage internal confidentiality controls, enforce ethical walls and track compliance.

IntApp, Inc., the leading provider of risk management software for the legal industry, today announced that Troutman Sanders LLP, an international law firm with more than 650 lawyers, providing a full spectrum of legal services across more than 50 practice groups, uses IntApp Wall Builder to manage internal confidentiality controls, enforce ethical walls and track compliance.

Wall Builder is a web-based confidentiality management application that enables organizations to centrally control, monitor and report on user access permissions across multiple applications including document management, accounting, portal, CRM, time entry and records management systems. It also automates notifications to individuals subject to specific policies and tracks acknowledgments for compliance purposes.

“We selected IntApp Wall Builder because it’s been adopted by our peers across the industry as the standard for law firm confidentiality management and ethical walls,” said Julie Petty, New Hire Conflicts Supervisor, Troutman Sanders LLP. “Wall Builder integrates smoothly with our existing intake and conflicts processes, and IntApp provides ongoing client education programs that help our firm stay abreast of industry confidentiality trends and emerging issues.”

Law firms must closely manage and track internal access to client information for many reasons. These include waiver-driven ethical walls, client outside counsel guidelines, and compliance with regulations such as the HITECH Act, ITAR and several data privacy laws.

Wall Builder replaces distributed, ad hoc approaches to information security with a centralized system that provides organizations with unprecedented capability and control over user access to specific applications, documents and other information. It’s the only product for law firms that delivers real-time enforcement while updating access rights in response to attorney behavior to ensure that policies are kept up to date automatically.

“We looked at an alternative option, but there was no comparison – to address our firm’s confidentiality management requirements, we required a mature product with a proven track record, delivered by a company committed to meeting our stringent technology requirements. IntApp Wall Builder fit the bill on all accounts,” said Barb Kunkel, Chief Information Officer, Troutman Sanders LLP. “Wall Builder enables us to centrally manage and instantly update security across our Autonomy iManage document libraries, so our lawyers have access to the information they need to be productive while avoiding the risk of inadvertent exposure to sensitive data.”

“We are pleased to count Troutman Sanders as part of our growing client community,” said Pat Archbold, head of IntApp's Risk Practice Group. “By using IntApp Wall Builder, the firm is able to demonstrate that it’s taking the strongest measures available to meet its confidentiality and compliance responsibilities.”
