iManage, the company dedicated to Making Knowledge WorkTM, today announced that Wedlake Bell – a leading provider of quality, pragmatic and solution-driven legal advice,– has selected iManage Cloud for their 400 users.

Prior to making the decision to move to the iManage Cloud, Wedlake Bell was already a long-standing customer of iManage Work, on-premises. Due to the unprecedented change in working practices and challenges caused by the pandemic – among them being increased remote working, additional cyber security burden, and competition for legal talent – the decision was made to engage leading legal IT consultants, Hyperscale Group, to undergo a complete review of the firm’s business technology.

Embarking on an extensive investigation of three document management systems available on the market, and after a detailed and rigorous review process, Wedlake Bell selected iManage Cloud, for a range of reasons including commercial terms, as well as the solution’s user interface,  high security standards, and deep integration with Microsoft Office 365 and Teams.

Today, over 50% of the UK’s largest law firms are in the iManage Cloud.

Martin Arnold, Managing Partner at Wedlake Bell, said, "By moving to iManage Cloud we are demonstrating our firm's commitment to investing in cutting edge technology, in order to drive internal efficiencies to be able to better serve our clients, whilst simultaneously enhancing the security of our data.

Geoff Hornsby, iManage General Manager EMEA, said, “We are delighted that Wedlake Bell is moving to the iManage Cloud, we are looking forward to a continued and long association with this prestigious firm.
