Collaboration platforms are designed to help law firms perform better, forge relationships with clients, and share information between colleagues. Here’s how a few of our law firm clients use HighQ Collaborate to solve their business problems and help them achieve more.

Ian Rodwell, Linklaters

“We use HighQ Collaborate to share content with a number of external parties, primarily our clients and also our alliance firms as well, so we see it as a secure way of sharing quite confidential materials with a number of third parties that we deal with. Having the product range from HighQ has really helped establish ourselves in that market, and I think it’s also demonstrated to people internally the art of the possible, and seeing how their content can be delivered to clients - it’s encouraged them to produce more that we can share.”

Esther Albers, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek

“We use Collaborate as a document exchange platform for our clients. It enables us to deepen our client relationships, and to deliver added value to our projects that we run with our clients. What we really like is that it enables us to build real sites, both for ourselves for projects, and also with our clients to exchange know-how, legal alerts and events information.”

Mark Gould, Addleshaw Goddard

“We’re using Collaborate primarily for real estate clients where they serve institutional investors with panels relationships. It replaces a lot of the social tools we were thinking about implementing otherwise, so it saves us a lot of money. Our clients find it particularly useful to have one site to go to, so you might have a surveyor with several different firms he’s working with, but to be able to go to just one site, to be able to deal with documents on a whole range of different sites is great, it’s useful.”

Claire Andrews, Cleary Gottlieb

“We use HighQ Collaborate for our client extranet sites. It gives us the opportunity to offer client facing sites without a very big overhead. It’s very agile, and we’re able to produce sites quickly and easily, to suit our different needs. I like the way it’s separated into different modules, so that we can choose what we want on each different site, and I also like the way that it’s very flexible, so we have a lot of opportunities to do different sites with the same product.”
