As Speechly Bircham continued growing, new locations in Paris and Geneva were added under BSO’s network management and increased bandwidth was secured to support the rapidly increasing number of legal professionals and mission-critical applications.
In 2014, Speechly Bircham’s decision to merge with Charles Russell created a number of new objectives for the firm, specific to the legal sector.
The combined team numbered over 500 lawyers generating a combined turnover of £135million.
There were now 10 offices spread across two continents and it became clear that further network consolidation and management would be necessary.
This would involve consolidating both London headquarters and multiple international data centres onto one centralised, fully managed network.
