Mattern Releases “How to Handle Records for a Successful Digital Transformation” White Paper Guide for the Law Firm of the Future

Chadds Ford, PA – March 31, 2020 – Leading law firm operations consultancy, Mattern, announces the firm has created a guide to help law firms’ digital transformation objectives, incorporating paper records. Recognizing the profound transformation triggered by the challenges of 2020, Mattern’s expert consultants and certified IG professionals compiled industry research and a step-by-step guide that firms can implement to become the law firm of the future.  The white paper, “How to Handle Records for a Successful Digital Transformation,” is available here.

COVID accelerated digital transformation in law firms. As we transition from crisis to long term strategy, law firms look to a world with more distributed workforces and substantial opportunities for change: significant real estate reduction and technology enabled workflows that can profoundly transform efficiency and productivity.  These new opportunities cannot be fully optimized, however, without addressing how law firms interact with paper. 

Mattern is widely regarded as the industry expert for helping firms strategically transform records operations.  The guide, authored exclusively by Mattern experts, includes key guidance for firms regarding how to:

Lay the groundwork to get out off-site records storage business in ten (10) years.

Incorporate an Information Governance policy with retention schedules.

Define a digital pathway for converting paper records, and off-site records storage contracts that allow you to obtain this goal.

Formulate a plan to digitize your upfront workflow so you are not producing paper to be stored.

 “We are proud to consistently provide the thought leadership that our law firm partners and the industry needs,” comments Rob Mattern, President of Mattern.  “Even more so, we are delighted to help firms solve this intransigent problem once and for all, and finally align their business operations with their digital transformation strategy to become the law firm of the future.”
