Smith, Gambrell & Russell Selects iManage Cloud as Optimal Knowledge Work Platform
Global News

iManage logoiManage, the company dedicated to Making Knowledge WorkTM, today announced that Smith, Gambrell & Russell LLP (SGR)— a full-service, international law firm with 350 lawyers in 14 offices across the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany — has selected iManage Cloud as the knowledge work platform of choice for its firm. A longtime on-premises iManage customer, SGR conducted an extensive survey of the market before selecting iManage as the best cloud offering for the firm. 

In addition to aligning with the firm’s overall cloud-first strategy, iManage Cloud will give the firm access to the latest innovations in the AI-powered iManage platform as soon as they are available, providing the firm’s legal professionals with the best available technology to securely collaborate, work smarter and more efficiently, and service their clients at the highest levels. 


The tight integration between iManage and Microsoft played a key role in the firm’s decision-making. As well as the benefits of leveraging iManage through a secure, reliable, and performant Microsoft Azure native cloud with a global footprint, the firm was drawn to the enhanced collaboration that native co-authoring capabilities and deep integration with Microsoft 365 applications provided. 

Along with iManage Work for intelligent email and document management, Smith, Gambrell & Russell will have access to iManage Security Policy Manager for protecting sensitive information with need-to-know security and ethical walls, and iManage Threat Manager for real-time threat detection and monitoring. 

“As a continually growing firm, we need technology that can not only address our needs today but can effectively scale and grow with us to address our future needs,” said Danny Rhinehart, Chief Information Officer, Smith, Gambrell & Russell. “iManage Cloud provides the innovative, secure foundation we require as our organisation moves forward. Investing in key platforms like iManage allows us as a firm to continue to drive value and deliver the best results to our clients.” 

Smith, Gambrell & Russell is working with local iManage partner, Harbor, to assist with its migration to iManage Cloud and expects to go live in early 2025. 

“Having a firm like Smith, Gambrell & Russell that has been in business for 130 years select our platform is strong validation of the benefits of iManage Cloud, which enables organisations to deliver the modern workplace,” said Jim Priz, EVP of Customer Experience, iManage. “iManage Cloud is a platform that will allow this longstanding and forward-thinking firm to accelerate innovation, enhance security, cultivate efficiency, and position itself for ongoing success as it continues to grow and thrive.”
