March 7, 2019 – Foundation Software Group, developer of the first legal enterprise experience platform, announced today that the global law firm Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP has selected Foundation to meet its experience management and proposal generation needs. The Foundation Experience Management platform transforms a firm’s disparate data about clients, matters, people, and parties into usable and actionable intelligence.
With over 1,000 lawyers and 30 practice areas, Arnold & Porter was looking for a flexible platform to help them identify and deploy their multidisciplinary expertise to better serve their clients. The firm plans to roll out the Foundation experience platform firm wide over time, starting with Marketing and Business Development.
“Given our size and complexity, the ability to quickly and easily configure a solution ourselves to meet our requirements was key to our decision. Foundation enables us to add custom fields to improve discover-ability, tracking, and reporting across practice areas and the firm as a whole,” said Michael Folkes, Chief Information Officer at Arnold & Porter. “We can then use those integrated experiences to generate highly targeted proposals using ourfirm-branded templates, and quickly assemble lawyers with the most relevant experience to best serve our clients.”
A firm wide knowledge management platform, Foundation helps firms leverage their collective work experience and the expertise of their lawyers for competitive advantage. It passively collects data from existing business applications and provides automated discovery and triggered workflow tools to add key details during the matter lifecycle.
“Gaining visibility across otherwise siloed data is key for large, client-focused firms like Arnold & Porter who want to leverage their multidisciplinary experiences as a core firm strength,” according to Barry Solomon, Executive Vice President of Foundation Software Group. “Foundation not only lets Business Development plug into the platform to be more efficient and effective, but also to incrementally leverage that intelligence across the firm for myriad uses, from pricing and lateral integration, to analytics-driven decision making.”
