LONDON, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Integreon, a leading global provider of outsourced legal, research and business services, today announced a 3-year contract with leading UK law firm Kennedys Law LLP to deliver library and information services.
As part of the engagement, Integreon will provide Kennedys with a central enquiry desk, legal and business research services and hardcopy library management. Integreon's Library and Information Service, launched in 2010, allows law firms to leverage Integreon's shared library resources to efficiently meet their need for high-quality legal research and specialized library services.
Access to specialised and comprehensive information services and libraries is vital for all law firms and legal professionals. Integreon's rich network of researchers and librarians has deep domain expertise and significant law firm experience. This provides a quality and depth of support that would usually only be available through a large in-house library staff whilst avoiding the operational difficulties and costs associated with maintaining internal library teams. Integreon provides these services to major law firms like CMS Cameron McKenna LLP, Osborne Clarke, Farrer & Co and Thomas Eggar LLP.
As part of Integreon's service expansion, the team of five library services professionals from Kennedys has been added to Integreon's shared team.
Guy Stobart, Chief Executive of Kennedys said, "The driver behind our partnership with Integreon was the requirement to have a scalable and first class service to meet the needs of a growing international law firm. We are looking forward to benefiting from wider information and research resources in order to meet the needs of our staff and clients."
Bob Gogel, CEO, Integreon said, "In a rapidly evolving legal landscape, law firms need bespoke and flexible support in library and information services. As a reliable alternative to traditional in-house library services, Integreon's specialised knowledge in this area helps meet this need and at the same time frees lawyers and legal professionals from administrative burdens. We are happy to partner with Kennedys, which is a well-respected and innovative firm with deep expertise and a rapidly-growing international network."
