Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer Chooses iManage Universal Search

Autonomy Becomes the Largest IT Supplier for Magic Circle Law Firm

(PresseBox) (Cambridge/San Francisco, ) Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, a leading international law firm with over 2,700 lawyers in 27 key business centres around the world, has chosen Autonomy iManage Universal Search (IUS) for all of its content and knowledge management requirements worldwide. Autonomy's selection means that the FTSE 100 company is now Freshfields' largest IT supplier. Built upon Autonomy's core infrastructure software, the Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), IUS will provide over 6,000 users with instant access to sought-after documents, and alerts to conceptually similar content and experts in the community, while guiding professionals to relevant case matter automatically and in real-time. iManage Universal Search was selected after a competitive procurement owing to IDOL's unique conceptual capabilities, scalability, and language and format independence.

"As a leading international law firm, we are always on the lookout for technology that boosts efficiency and effectiveness, helps to cut costs, delivers unique solutions to our lawyers and improves service to our clients," said Paul Domnick, CIO of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. "Autonomy is becoming the standard and the leading innovator in the industry thanks to the powerful combination of Interwoven's deep domain expertise and Autonomy's robust, meaning-based platform."

Autonomy iManage, the undisputed leader in legal document management with 75% of the Global 100 and 61% of the top 100 UK law firms as customers, provides a common platform for law firms and their corporate legal departments. iManage Universal Search 7.0, now based on IDOL, is a pan-enterprise search solution tailored for law firms, delivering an order of magnitude increase in performance over the previous version. IDOL's unique meaning-based technology can form an understanding from data across languages, data types and jurisdictions and identify patterns between disparate pieces of information thus ensuring comprehensiveness of the results for lawyers and their clients.

"In the advent of this new era of increased litigation and a meteoric rise in unstructured information, law firms need a robust technological platform that enables them to bring meaning to all data, regardless of what it is or where it resides. Thanks to the power of IDOL, Autonomy is the only company that can help law firms meet these demands," said Anthony Bettencourt, CEO of Autonomy Interwoven. "We are delighted that Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has selected iManage Universal Search for its content and knowledge management requirements worldwide."
