In October 2012, top tier Australian law firm, Freehills merged with UK-based Herbert Smith—creating one of the world’s global elite law firms with over 4000 staff worldwide.
At the time of the merger, Herbert Smith were primarily using HighQ for client extranets and data rooms, while Freehills had been piloting the platform for data rooms and social collaboration tools.
Following the merger the firm’s use of HighQ went in a brand new direction.
Driven by the increased need for global knowledge sharing, this case study identifies how HighQ helped bridge the gap between the two global firms.
The solution: A central location where people from both firms can communicate, share documents and co-author content with ease.
