Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAN FRANCISCO - May 16, 2017 - Opus 2 International, a global litigation services and software development company, today announced that one of the most prestigious and profitable law firms in the US has selected Opus 2 Magnum™ cloud software for firm-wide transcript management and case collaboration behind its firewall. This Top-3 firm is distinguished by its approach to cross-functional collaboration: involving team members from multiple practice areas in every matter and applying the collective insight to the case strategies. Opus 2 Magnum software complements the firm’s unique collaborative process and makes the collective work product more valuable than is possible when stored in disparate network drives.
The law firm licensed the On-Premise version of the Opus 2 Magnum cloud platform to satisfy the data security protocols required by the firm’s financial-industry clients—entities that avoid the use of traditional cloud services. Opus 2’s use of cutting-edge server “containerization” yields an identical user experience to the traditional hosted version, but the environment exists entirely behind the firm’s firewall. This configuration enables the law firm to maintain their own case data and work product while Opus 2 remotely administers the software platform that is wrapped around it.
“In the past two years, corporate clients have become increasingly influential in the technology that is used by their outside counsel, particularly in terms of cloud tools,” said Graham Smith-Bernal, founder and CEO for Opus 2 International. “We’ve developed the on-premise version of Opus 2 Magnum so that every law firm can benefit from its collaborative nature—even if they are not in a position to leverage cloud-based services.”
More than 200 of the firm’s attorneys will gain full use of Magnum’s self-contained, yet dynamic workspaces for case analysis and transcript management. By nurturing client evidentiary material and cross-practice work product side-by-side in Opus 2 Magnum, this firm has successfully accelerated its workflows and reclaimed network storage for its internal files.
Opus 2’s client portfolio includes 100 percent of the Sweet Sixteen Trans-Atlantic Law Firms, the AmLaw Global 2013 Top 10 firms, the Magic Circle and the Big Four Consulting Firms, which use Opus 2 Magnum to collaborate on litigation matters.
