We made a strategic decision to purchase Wall Builder to prepare our firm to respond to client concerns about ethical screens and confidentiality.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
IntApp, Inc., provider of the most-adopted information security software for law firms, today announced that LeClairRyan, a corporate law and litigation firm with offices across the United States, leverages IntApp Wall Builder as an important part of a business development strategy designed to support the acquisition of high-value clients and lateral hires to its growing firm.
“We made a strategic decision to purchase Wall Builder to prepare our firm to respond to client concerns about ethical screens and confidentiality,” said Lisa Womack, Director of Conflicts Resolution and Client Intake, LeClairRyan. “In addition to enhancing client service, Wall Builder frequently contributes to our ability to take on important lateral hires when effective screens are necessary.”
Wall Builder is a web-based information security and access control management software 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.
Wall Builder is the most-adopted information access management software product by law firms with 150 or more lawyers. According to an independent survey by the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) of its membership, 72% of large firms using commercial software to enforce confidentiality management use IntApp Wall Builder. Today, law firms use Wall Builder to manage information security and access controls for over 2 billion documents globally.
LeClairRyan also uses Wall Builder to help manage how contract lawyers access internal information. The firm occasionally engages contract lawyers to meet spikes in client demand in a cost-effective manner, but found that providing contractors with access to unrelated client information and firm work product created potential ethical concerns. Blocking access, moreover, created significant administrative burdens.
Wall Builder’s isolation barriers let LeClairRyan easily restrict contractors from accessing material otherwise generally open to partners, associates and staff. The net result is that contractors only see information for the matters they’re assigned to, enabling the firm to manage contract resources more effectively.
“We’re very pleased to highlight LeClairRyan’s success with Wall Builder,” said Pat Archbold, Head of IntApp’s Risk Practice Group. “In leveraging the product to support its business development objectives, the firm is demonstrating a commitment to client care and strategic growth that many peer firms seek to emulate.”
