Nick will help Founder and CEO Chris Giles with business and markeIng; strategy and communicaIons.

Nick said “I’ve known Chris since he and Keith created LegalRM and I’ve always been an enthusiasIc advocate for their knowledge, vision and technical skill. UnIl recently, only enlightened firms realised how core to their reputaIon and business operaIons, records management and informaIon governance was; it has now become a mainstream concern and focus.

LegalRM offer an outstanding soluIon for integraIng the leading DM & RM products. The newest version of their ICompli product is being rapidly adopted by the exisIng LegalRM clients; but it’s also breaking into exciIng new markets e.g. in North America. So, I was delighted when Chris asked me to lend him a hand managing the next phase of growth for LegalRM. “

LegalRM assists law firms to implement and leverage the most advanced records management soluIon. Available either in the cloud or on-premises; iCompli now seamlessly integrates with NetDocuments and other leading DMS, to provide a single point of control, for both physical and electronic records.

CommenIng on recruiIng Nick, Chris Giles, Founder and CEO of LegalRM explained, “We’ve delivered leading records management soluIons for law firms, including 4 of the top 10 global firms; for nearly 15 years. Our clients see the integraIon of our flagship records management pla^orm, iCompli, as a natural progression to deliver an integrated informaIon governance soluIon. They’re upgrading fast and new clients are building up. So, I realised I needed skilled help shaping and managing this growth; and I thought of Nick, with his experience, enthusiasm and drive.”

As law firms comply with GDPR, they are progressing from just the clear need for them to understand where client data is being held.
