Like so many large Am Law 100 law firms with offices across the United States and around the world, our firm was facing challenges sharing and backing up data, and we wanted to strengthen our disaster recovery capabilities without compromising our operational excellence. Sidley Austin LLP is a 140-year-old international law firm with approximately 1700 lawyers in 17 offices (seven in the United States and 10 more across Asia and Europe). Our challenge was that we had a complex legacy network connecting all the offices. At times, this resulted in slow data transfers, limiting our legal teams’ opportunities to efficiently and effectively leverage interoffice resources.
