Goulston & Storrs is pleased to announce the launch of its “PrivilegeRamp”on Legal OnRamp. Of the 400+ law firms participating in Legal OnRamp, Goulston was among the first invited to upgrade to FirmRamp status because of its demonstrated leadership in Web 2.0 for the legal profession. Goulston & Storrs attorneys will provide attorney-client privilege and work product protection information in the form of blogs, discussion forums, collaboration, and pertinent news and related key cases.
CEO of Legal OnRamp, Paul Lippe, said,“ Goulston & Storrs combines expertise on the most up to date and comprehensive information in the areas of attorney-client privilege and work product protection, together with a commitment to innovation that led it to focus on the inter-connected OnRamp platform as a way to engage inhouse lawyers. Ethics issues are an ongoing area of interest for inhouse lawyers, and with our thousands of inhouse members and upcoming roll-out to the 14,000 members of the General Counsel Roundtable, Goulston’s PrivilegeRamp will be their first ‘port of call’ for information in this key area. I’m also happy to note that Goulston is the first Boston-based firm to take advantage of this opportunity to deliver superior value to clients, reflecting its leading position in the legal community.”
Bruce MacEwen, leading legal industry strategist, added ‘We’ve long predicted that initiatives like Legal OnRamp and now Goulston’s ethics-focused offering would have to be part of the practice of law sooner or later. But with this announcement and others like it, it’s increasingly clear that future expectation is turning into present reality.”
Goulston’s co-managing director, Marty Fantozzi, commented: “We are thrilled that Legal OnRamp invited us to participate in the FirmRamp program from its inception. This opportunity recognizes the thought leadership our attorneys bring to in-house counsel with respect to privilege and professional responsibility. We look forward to providing valuable information through this medium and continuing to find ways to deliver superior value to clients.”
