Secure Cloud Migration for Critical Law Firm App

The Client

Seyfarth Shaw LLP navigates complex litigation, negotiating transformational deals, or advising on cross-border projects with exceptional legal outcomes. Seyfarth Shaw has been first-to-market on many legal service delivery innovations and continues to break new ground for their clients every day. Seyfarth Shaw’s goals are to generate value; to protect investment; to grow. For 75 years, they have partnered with clients to reach those goals. In advisory, litigation, and transactional services, Seyfarth Shaw LLP has delivered the right solution at the right moment, empowering their clients to face challenges and seize opportunities. 

The Challenge

Seyfarth Shaw needed a solution to host this application on an interim basis immediately while they worked towards a fully SaaS model. They also knew that rapid migration could pose unnecessary and avoidable risk.  The approaching deadline to complete the migration meant they needed outside help to expedite the process.

When Seyfarth Shaw leadership first went to their existing technology partner for help they were presented with a much bigger managed services solution than they needed, an estimate for the migration far more than they expected, and a timeframe that just didn’t work. The firm knew they needed an expert technology partner with a deep understanding of complex migrations, and Azure and Microsoft platforms and products.

The Solution

They turned to Netrix, who listened carefully, asked the right questions and came back with an immediately actionable solution to meet their unique requirements, their budget and their timeframe. Netrix recommended Microsoft Azure so Seyfarth Shaw could move the application quickly to avoid any service interruptions and ensure necessary security and compliance requirements were in place, including needed firewalls, while using their existing infrastructure.

In addition, Netrix understood that once this migration was completed, Seyfarth wanted to manage the day-to-day monitoring and management of this interim solution.  Netrix then provided a complete knowledge transfer once the migration was done, to allow the Seyfarth team to fully manage the system themselves without a large learning curve.

The Result

Netrix’s approach gave Seyfarth Shaw the flexibility and agility they required, without locking them into a long-term contract, and set them up for future success.

    Aggressive Timeframe

    Seyfarth Shaw had to migrate this mission-critical application quickly but couldn’t risk disruption or delay.

    Cost Conscious Budget

    Netrix recommended a one-time project budget, rather than an expensive and ongoing managed services contract.

    Maximum Flexibility

    Netrix’s interim Azure migration solution allowed Seyfarth to later transition their enterprise IT on their own timeline.
