The KnowList Awards, voted for by just under 4,000 lawyers, are dedicated to the strategic implementation of technology within law firms, recognizing the success of key individuals, law firms and suppliers who are constantly striving to add value using IT. Established in 1982, SJ Berwin is a leading international law firm with approximately 150 partners and more than 400 lawyers in Europe, the Middle East and East Asia.

SJ Berwin has implemented Autonomy IUS with Phoenix Knowledge Assist to allow its lawyers quick and easy access to knowledge from a wide range of internal and external data sources. Phoenix Business Solutions, a long-standing partner of Autonomy, managed the implementation and configurations of both systems to provide self-service intuitive enterprise search capability that combines internal and external information resources with the firm’s own knowledge and expertise, helping lawyers deliver the best advice in the shortest possible time.

According to SJ Berwin’s IT Director, Simon Kosminsky, “Our lawyers’ ability to find the information they need quickly and easily improves turnaround times and client service. The combination of Autonomy IUS with Phoenix Knowledge Assist has a direct impact on our bottom line, by saving time, boosting productivity, reducing costs for the firm and improving our client service.”

“We would like to extend our congratulations to SJ Berwin for receiving this well-deserved recognition,” said Neil Araujo, CEO of Autonomy Protect Legal Systems. “This award is a strong validation for how Autonomy’s iManage Universal Search can deliver a powerful search solution tailored to meet the needs of today’s lawyers.
