Intelligent Office UK (IO), the leading support services provider to UK law firms, has been appointed by major US law firm Shearman & Sterling, to deliver reprographic, mail, courier and records management services to its London office.
The contract commenced on 1st January 2018 and saw a number of employees TUPE transfer from the incumbent service provider to IO.
Rachel McCorry, CEO at IO said the following about the win,
“As a business that is strategically focused on the UK legal sector, we want to be associated with the best brands in the market and Shearman & Sterling certainly ticks that box! Shearman & Sterling had a longstanding relationship with a global outsourcing provider to whom they had outsourced their London Office Services team for many years. Following a competitive tender we were awarded the contract and are of course delighted that the firm has chosen us over some major global competitors, further proof of the strength of our legal sector experience and reputation in the market.”
In addition to Shearman & Sterling, IO has also recently won the contract to deliver a range of reprographic, mail and courier services to the Solicitors Regulation Authority, (SRA) and has renewed its contract with longstanding London law firm, Farrer & Co.
These firms join an increasing number of UK top 100 law firms, which have outsourced to IO. Clients include Gowling WLG, Penningtons Manches, Wedlake Bell, Capsticks and DAC Beachcroft.
