Law firm Farrer & Co LLP has appointed Integreon, the largest global provider of integrated research, legal and business solutions to professionals, to deliver its library and information/research services.
The agreement with Integreon will support Farrer & Co’s growing information and knowledge base for the future by making a number of additional services available to the firm and providing high quality, bespoke research in an efficient and effective format, helping the firm to continue to provide the highest quality legal services to its commercial, institutional and private clients.
Ben Bennett, Chief Operating Officer at Farrer & Co said, “The delivery of our research function by Integreon will allow us to meet proactively the specialist needs of our continually evolving firm. This will provide quality and depth of research support on a scale we might not achieve otherwise. This in turn will allow us to enhance the service we offer all-round as we enter the next stage of the firm’s development.”
Integreon’s Library and Information Services represent a new approach to the management of law libraries and legal research, one that effectively frees firms from the administrative tasks required to maintain and operate library collections and research operations. More importantly, Integreon provides access to a comprehensive and flexible support network of industry-leading librarians and researchers at a scale normally accessible only to the largest and most specialised of law firms.
Integreon will be providing Farrer & Co with all of its legal and business research services, in addition to a central enquiries desk, hardcopy and journal maintenance, supplier relationship management and purchasing support.
Integreon’s scale and delivery model enables law firms to significantly improve the efficiency of law libraries and research operations, providing users with greater levels of service and support. The service also empowers mid-sized law firms to overcome the barriers of running a high-performance library.
Farrer & Co joins several other U.K. law firms already using Integreon’s library and information services, including Morgan Cole LLP, Beachcroft LLP, Osborne Clarke and TLT LLP. The service was unveiled in late 2009.
“As a forward-thinking firm, Farrer & Co recognises the value of external library and research specialists who deliver high-quality, professional research and insight that enables their professionals to focus on their core business tasks with confidence,” said Eleanor Windsor, Vice President of Knowledge and Business Development Services at Integreon. “Farrer & Co chose Integreon not only for our proven dedication to high-quality business research and insight, but also because our flexible, scalable services support the firm’s evolving needs.”
