The ELMS Story

For nearly 30 years I have worked inside law firms managing and delivering their document management needs. I became a specialist in what lawyers need to do and deliver during litigation, including the litigation management technology that supports their work.

One day, and the full story does involve a coffee shop and a logo drawn on a napkin (which is now our logo), a client said to me, “I know you have this rare combination of skills and I need you to manage the electronic discovery on a matter which is being handled by another law firm. I need your skills everywhere.”

That was the day the founders and I realised the solution we had been thinking and talking about for many years could be made a reality. We realised there was a market for client centric electronic document management services for litigation which brought together clients, their lawyers and the technology solutions.

With the backing of its founders, ELMS has evolved into a successful business with a diverse client list, and from that one request we are now handling many terabytes of data and are making litigation management software accessible on every matter. We are excited about the new products that are coming to market and are continuing to make the power of litigation management technology more accessible.

ELMS success has been and will continue to be centred around:

  • knowing the technology inside out;
  • being the connector between technology, the lawyers and their clients; and
  • delivering value.

The team and I really look forward to working with you.
