Halebury was set up by lawyers who wanted an alternative working model from the traditional law firm. Launched in February 2007, Halebury’s model is simple: a team of entrepreneurial, highly experienced, independent, self-employed lawyers working within the Halebury framework. In just 7 years, Halebury has achieved an impressive client list, including several blue chip companies such as BSkyB and Nike and high profile individuals such as Ben Ainslie and Matthew Macklin.
With little in the way of in-house IT expertise, Halebury continued its alternative working ethos when it came to selecting its IT infrastructure. “Most of our lawyers work from home or from clients’ offices,” explained Denise Nurse, a founding Director of Halebury. “We needed a robust solution that removed the need for us to maintain and support our systems internally, provided our lawyers with access to applications and data from any location and which would ensure a secure and centralised information repository.”
A recommendation lead Halebury to entrustIT – a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner with a solid track record in the design, implementation, management and support of cloud-based managed IT services. “I was impressed with entrustIT from the outset,” said Denise. “They understood our objectives and put together an extremely cost-effective proposal that delivered the security and accessibility that was so essential to our business and which would meet our immediate and long-term requirements.”
With satisfactory references being taken, Halebury partnered with entrustIT for the delivery of a complete service. The solution proposed by entrustIT was for a fully hosted IT service provided from a dedicated data centre which would be professionally managed, backed-up and secured from external threats.
