Intapp, a global leader in business applications for professional services firms, today announced that Baker Botts L.L.P. – a leading international law firm of 725 lawyers – has selected Intapp Open to streamline new business intake and conflicts management.
Baker Botts, which ranked 39th in The American Lawyer’s 2017 Am Law 100, has been in operation for 177 years.
The firm has selected InOutsource, a certified Intapp services partner, to conduct a comprehensive analysis of its business intake and conflicts clearance processes, and plan and execute the implementation of Intapp Open in the cloud. Baker Botts is adopting a cloud-based NBI and conflicts management system after successfully moving its document management system (DMS) to the cloud.
“Cloud applications offer tremendous benefits to our lawyers and staff – agility and mobility, as well as ease of collaboration,” said Rick Boulin, Chief Information Officer, Baker Botts. “With Intapp Open, we have the opportunity to streamline our NBI and conflicts management processes with the most advanced technology available today, while taking advantage of the security, availability and business continuity offered by the Intapp Secure Cloud.”
The Intapp Secure Cloud is designed and built for secure computing from the ground up, exceeding stringent regulatory requirements while preserving customer control over where data is stored and processed, and how it is accessed. Intapp also conducts regular testing for threats and ongoing monitoring for irregularities to help protect both client and firm data. Firms such as Baker Botts adopting the cloud version of Intapp Open benefit from reliability, performance and the ability to automatically implement software updates and patches as soon as they become available.
Intapp Open is the leading application for new business intake and conflicts management for law firms, adopted by more than 200 firms worldwide. By automating workflows and providing key stakeholders with visibility into the client and matter evaluation process, Intapp Open accelerates business acceptance, enhances client service delivery, and informs strategic decision making as firms increasingly turn to their risk and conflicts teams for the insights they are able to provide.
“We constantly challenge our team to look for innovative ways to share knowledge, improve our operating efficiency, and help make our lawyers more productive,” said Tracy Hallenberger, Chief Knowledge Officer, Baker Botts. “Intapp Open will make it much faster for our business intake and conflicts teams to respond to new client/matter requests, and help make more informed decisions about new business opportunities as our firm continues to grow.”
Baker Botts currently uses several Intapp products including Intapp Walls, which it uses to help secure iManage Cloud, as well as Intapp Time for time recording.
