The British Legal Awards, presented by the prestigious publication Legal Week, recognize the greatest achievements, excellence and innovation in the legal profession over the past year. The winners are selected by an independent panel of elite representatives of the legal world, such as former managing and senior partners at renowned law firms and senior in-house counsel of large corporations.

Autonomy provides best-of-breed technology and thought leadership to meet the needs of law firms and legal teams across the world. Thanks to its unique technology, Autonomy offers the only solutions able to form a conceptual understanding of all data in the organization - including human information such as emails, audio and video - irrespective of language or format, providing a holistic view of a case or matter.

“The British Legal Awards 2011 recognize the achievements of those organizations and individuals that have responded most successfully to the demands being placed on them in the new post-recession business environment,” said John Malpas, Publisher of Legal Week. “The ‘Supplier of the Year’ Award recognizes the contribution suppliers make to improving the delivery of legal services, based on the criteria of expertise and professionalism, innovation, value for money, customer satisfaction and measurable success. Autonomy can deservedly feel very proud to be named the winner.”

“This award is a great testament of Autonomy’s achievements in legal information management,” said Glenn Perachio, VP Autonomy Protect Solutions EMEA. “Today, law firms are faced with an ever-increasing pressure to simultaneously improve client service while taking care of the bottom line, while corporate legal departments are challenged by a climate of heightened regulation.
