Why should you scan your legal documents?

It’s widely known that law firms possess a vast amount of paperwork that requires frequent referencing, updating, and secure storage for compliance purposes. Due to limited office space, holding onto physical legal documents can be expensive, and manually converting them into electronic formats can lead to human errors and excessive cost. Our legal document scanning services offer a solution to help legal practices improve accuracy, reduce costs, and conveniently access vital information, regardless of their location.

Scanning all of your historical files may not always be necessary or cost-effective. To provide a comprehensive document management solution that includes both scanning and secure storage, we offer a secure document storage facility.

Document Coding

Our legal document coding services offer an advanced level of document management that can help simplify your e-discovery and e-disclosure process. Document coding refers to the process of indexing and categorising legal documents using specific codes, keywords, and metadata.

By coding your legal documents, you can easily sort and organise them based on various criteria such as case title, client name, date, and relevant keywords. This makes it easier to search for and retrieve specific documents when needed, thereby reducing the time and effort required for manual search and retrieval.

In addition, our document coding services can also help you to identify relevant documents for e-discovery and e-disclosure purposes. We can code your legal documents in a way that allows you to easily filter and analyse them based on specific criteria, helping you to quickly identify and retrieve relevant information required for legal proceedings.

You have done a fantastic job and I can't believe all of those 8 lever arch files have been condensed into that tiny USB. Thanks very much for all your help and I will definitely be in touch if we need any more scanning done in the future.

In addition, as we were unsure of our initial requirements they were able to talk through the options and assist in ensuring we weren't going to end up paying more than we needed to! Great service, that we'll certainly use again.
