Business Challenges:

Over the past 20 years, Leigh Day’s cases have generated a lot of files and data, the storage and security of this data is critical for the firm and its clients. In order to deal with this data and its storage on a daily basis, the firm needed to find a sophisticated backup solution to support its work now and in the future.

Working with its incumbent provider Leigh Day’s existing ‘pay-by-capacity’ backup solution was leading to escalating costs.

For example, saving and using high-resolution data-heavy satellite images and using the ‘pay-bycapacity’ model proved unworkable as the firm was being charged per gigabyte. With 300 staff and new offices in Manchester, the firm needed a more robust backup to accommodate the organisation’s growth. Furthermore, the legal firm was a VMware house meaning they required a flexible infrastructure to suit their
already virtualised environment.

Alongside managing the backup needs of an expanding firm, Leigh Day had to comply with regulatory bodies such as the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Data Protection Act (DPA) to ensure the safety and security of any backed up data.
