“This project was business-critical for our client – we were replacing and improving a core part of their attorneys’ daily workflow,” said Joshua Fireman, founder, and president of Fireman & Company. “The CIO’s request was frank, that Fireman & Company and the partners had to work as a single unit. I’m proud that this project succeeded through great project management and industry-leading thought leadership, design, and technology.”

“This project showcased how three separate organizations can partner together to accomplish a common goal and deliver for the client,” said Glenn LaForce, executive vice president and chief strategy officer at Handshake Software. “The firm put its trust in Handshake Software and its partners on this strategic project, and we all delivered.”
