iManage, the company dedicated to transforming how professionals work, today announced that Stikeman Elliott LLP — one of Canada’s leading business law firms — has selected iManage as its firm-wide Work Product Management platform.

After conducting a comprehensive internal review of its business processes and work product management needs, the firm sought a world-class, fully integrated solution.

The firm also valued the integrated security management and powerful machine learning-based threat protection from iManage Threat Manager. Additionally, iManage Records Manager will support the firm’s information governance requirements. iManage Records Manager automates the management of physical and electronic content throughout the work product lifecycle — from creation to appropriate disposition of records when no longer required.
