Transforming and managing IT for Keoghs

Three year partnership contract will provide end-to-end infrastructure services, underpinning the law firm’s significant growth plans.

Keoghs LLP, one of the UK’s top providers of defendant claims-related legal services, and Steria, a leading provider of IT-enabled business services, have today announced the signing of a new three year partnership contract for the transformation and ongoing management of Keoghs’ infrastructure.

"We are pleased to announce this new partnership with Steria,” said John Salt, Chief Information Officer of Keoghs, “Our partnership with Steria will transform our infrastructure estate and manage it more efficiently to facilitate our ambitious growth strategy. Both parties will work in partnership to drive out cost and improve productivity, innovation and quality over the term of the contract."

Mark Stirrup, Sector Director for Insurance and Legal Services of Steria UK, added: “Time is a precious commodity for all businesses, but especially so in the legal practices, where revenue is highly dependent on fee earning time.  We are committed to introducing new technology coupled with industry standard processes to reduce Keoghs’ risk and support their business growth.  This is a strategic contract for Steria in the legal sector and we will continue to invest in capability in support of our ambitions in this market.

Steria was chosen following a competitive selection process and a three year agreement has been signed for providing end-to-end infrastructure services, including ITIL v3 remote service desk, on-site support, data storage and backup, server virtualisation to Steria’s private cloud, disaster recovery and business continuity.
