The firm applies its knowledge, insight and skill to help clients achieve their business objectives while managing and minimizing their legal risks, difficulties and expenses. With offices in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia and Washington, D.C., the firm has approximately 325 attorneys representing a wide variety of clients throughout the nation.
The firm approached Proxios in 2010 to upgrade their outdated IT infrastructure so they could keep pace with their national growth. Their firm had over 90 different applications, including document management, time and billing software, tax law, litigation, patent and trademark processing, along with the full suite of Microsoft Office products requiring management, maintenance, deployment and support which overwhelmed their internal IT team.
The benefits of moving to a virtual environment went beyond consistency and flexibility. In the legal industry, where it can be hard to attract and retain top talent, virtual desktops provide their attorneys and their staff with the power and flexibility to do their jobs with greater productivity while achieving a better work life balance.
Moving to virtual desktops, their firm achieved their primary IT objectives around mobile computing and enterprise class data security. Their virtual desktops provide a consistent user interface regardless of whether they’re working from a PC, laptop or tablet. The desktop experience moves with their attorneys and staff regardless of location, minimizing confusion and simplifying training and support.
From a security prospective, client documents are now all stored centrally on Proxios’ cloud solution, where they benefit from Proxios’ industry-leading security technologies and regulatory driven operational controls. Proxios is always making improvements to their firms’ solution so they can provide the best legal services to their customers. And their internal IT team can focus on providing the latest legal solutions to their staff.
Proxios’ best-in-class technology solutions have allowed LeClairRyan to flourish, focusing on its clients and business, while increasing productivity, achieving a better working environment for all employees, all in a highly secure IT infrastructure solution.
Today, the firm remains a satisfied client thanks to Proxios’ consistent advancements in the comprehensive IT solution which includes firm-wide deployment of Citrix virtual desktops.
