Legal Archive Storage

From huge law firms to single solicitors, all legal businesses process masses of documentation. As experts in the law, you’ll know that they all need secure legal archive storage. Every aspect of the legal industry deals with huge amounts of paperwork on a daily basis. From international law firms to individual solicitors, all companies within the legal sector need to be able to manage masses of confidential documentation for extended periods of time. These documents need to be securely stored but easily accessible, as some files such as wills will have to be retrieved at an indeterminate point in the future.

Regulatory Compliant

Perhaps more than any other sector, law practices need to be completely compliant with all data protection laws. The introduction of new GDPR regulations in 2018 has made it more important than ever to ensure all of your legal documents, files, contracts and records are appropriately stored and easily retrieved.

Storing and managing legal documents on-site can be impractical and often leads to office spaces becoming cluttered and disorganised. Cataloguing and managing all of your legal records is very time-consuming, not to mention frustrating. This is far from ideal for professional law companies who are processing large quantities of confidential information in an office with already limited space.

Will Storage

Wills are one of the most important documents in all of our lives. Even though we live in an increasingly digital age, the original paper copies of wills and deeds will need to be carefully stored for future reference. Whether you’re a law firm or an individual customer, it’s imperative that wills and other legal documents are securely stored and easily accessible.

While some law firms and solicitors may store their clients’ wills, not all offer this service, either due to lack of available space or concerns over security. A secure, cheap and convenient storage solution to your will storage concerns can be found in Flexible’s archive storage service.
