As an international intellectual property law firm with offices throughout Europe, HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER (HRM) relies on the ability to offer efficient, modern workspaces for their employees. It is business-critical that employees have access to applications and data from anywhere, as they often work at their customers’ locations. HRM recently partnered with IT services provider Proact for support with these modern workspace and infrastructure needs.
HRM’s entire IT environment is located in the cloud, including its data storage. In addition, the law firm also uses Azure and Microsoft 365. These infrastructure components are essential to enabling HRM to work under the time pressure often present within the legal sector.
As with many businesses, the consequences of the coronavirus emphasised the importance of new ways of working for the firm’s employees. HRM required workspaces that would make it possible for employees to work from anywhere, while still ensuring the security of legal information.
“We were looking for a partner that could help us find the best solutions,” says Adil Bekkali, International Director of Information Technology at HRM. “Proact acts as an extension of our own team. They really are part of our IT organisation. They are not simply a traditional supplier, but a partner. They also understand that, due to the nature of our business, we often deal with highly sensitive data, and Proact is continuously helping us keep this protected as we adapt to new ways of working.”
“Leveraging our expertise in the legal services sector across Europe allows us to provide services that are especially relevant for this industry,” says Mark van Liempt, Business Unit Director West, of Proact. “HRM works with sensitive legal information. A safe working environment is therefore a requirement. Proact is continuously working on making improvements and looking for new solutions to best serve these needs. As a result, HRM will be able to rely on its IT infrastructure well into the future.”
