The Frayman Group
Compliguard Protect™ enables global law firm to reduce risk exposure by safeguarding access to sensitive information
New York City — (January 5, 2010) – The Frayman Group, a leading provider of risk management software and services for law firms, today announced that Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP has chosen Compliguard Protect ethical walls and information barriers software system to proactively secure and protect information on a firm-wide basis. In addition to features and functionality, The Frayman Group’s domain expertise, 18-year history of successful risk management software implementations and long-standing track record of exemplary customer service were key factors in Akin Gump’s selection.
Akin Gump, a leading global law firm with more than 800 lawyers throughout the U.S, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, needed a comprehensive, automated system to set-up, track and manage access to information across the firm’s numerous offices and information repositories. Compliguard Protect, designed specifically for law firms, protects sensitive information and reduces risk exposure by establishing, maintaining, monitoring and updating screens to proactively prevent unauthorized or unintended access.
“Compliguard Protect is a stellar system from a trusted vendor with a proven track record of understanding law firm risk management issues and developing and delivering software to address those issues,” said Lorey A. Hoffman, CIO, Akin Gump. “The system will enable us to consistently secure content across our critical firm systems from a single point of entry, in real-time.”
The Frayman Group will work in cooperation with Akin Gump’s risk management and IT professionals to implement Compliguard Protect, which will integrate with and lock down the firm’s new business intake, conflicts management, records management, document management, and time entry systems.
“We’ve worked closely with The Frayman Group team on numerous software installations and consulting projects for more than six years and have found them to operate more like a partner, than a vendor,” said Gerry Urich, Director of Business Acceptance. “That’s why we continue to
look to The Frayman Group for leading-edge risk management solutions and related consulting services. Every piece of software they’ve ever delivered has been a reliable workhorse, and we’re confident Compliguard Protect will be no exception.”
The Frayman Group’s team of risk professionals is also managing Akin Gump’s full-service LegalKEY Conflicts Management upgrade, and is providing consulting and implementation services for the firm’s LegalKEY New Business Intake implementation.
