Repstor grows in legal sector
Demand for Repstor’s (www.repstor.com) Custodian for Legal, matter lifecycle management solution and Repstor for Teams solutions continue to grow as more legal teams seek more intuitive and mainstream ways to collaborate on their caseloads across distance.
Repstor’s clients around the world include North American law firm Charthouse Lawyers; international firms Adams & Adams and Konexo; Anthony Gold Solicitors, gunnercooke and Boels Zanders Advocaten in Europe, plus the in-house legal departments of Network Rail, UK Power Networks, National Grid, Wellcome Trust and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have all turned to Repstor’s Microsoft 365-based legal software to deliver greater agility, visibility and efficiency as they progress and monitor client matters.
“Repstor’s success in the international legal market has been phenomenal, and is a strong indication that the profession is no longer well served by complex, expensive, proprietary document management solutions,” comments Alan McMillen, CEO, Repstor.
“Legal teams are voting with their feet and switching to software that’s intuitive, close at hand, and used by everyone. Repstor meets that need, giving legal professionals a single window through which they can monitor and manage matters right through to completion, in a fully compliant way, with everything they need to hand. Demand for our Microsoft 365-based matter lifecycle management solutions is stronger than ever, and with our expanding and deeply experienced team on both sides of the Atlantic, our clients couldn’t be in better hands.”
In response to the explosion in demand for its legal solutions, Repstor recently bolstered its senior teams in the US and UK. Among the latest appointments are Kevin Bley, US Sales for Corporate Legal in the US – an experienced VP of sales with strong business development skills in IT and services, particularly linked to Software as a Service (SaaS). He joins Robert Swan, VP of Sales for Legal Solutions for the Americas, and Bryan Ferguson, Director of Sales for the Americas.
Heading Repstor’s global Legal Solutions organization is co-founder Sheila Gormley in Belfast, UK. She is joined by Deirdre Sweeney, Repstor’s recently-appointed Head of Operations responsible for customer success. Deirdre has worked in the IT industry since graduating from Trinity College Dublin in 1987. Another highly-experienced member of the UK team is Principal Consultant for Legal & Professional Services, Leigh Smith, who joined Repstor from global law firm Eversheds Sutherland in 2018.
