    Konexo appointed by Network Rail to streamline legal matter management through Custodian for Legal™ in collaboration with Repstor

    A major new business win for Konexo as it expands its alternative legal services business

    Konexo, the unique global alternative legal and compliance services provider, announces a major new business win with Network Rail for Custodian for Legal™ – an office 365 based matter management solutions offering for corporations – developed by Konexo in conjunction with Repstor, matter lifecycle management specialists. National Rail will be using the system across its legal team for everyday matter lifecycle management.

    The latest instruction by Network Rail builds on Custodian for Legal’s recent successes with Brewin Dolphin and UK Power Networks. The offering was designed specifically to meet the needs of in-house legal teams, under guidance from Konexo’s legal experts. It uses the Office 365 platform to provide matter-centric document and email management, including structuring access to and storage of documents and matter intake and triage. The system is proven to enable increased productivity by providing greater efficiency and consistency for legal teams, making operating collaboratively simpler and easier to implement. 

    Commenting on the Network Rail win and the wider success of the Konexo-Repstor alliance, Graham Richardson, Head of Konexo Global, said:

    “This is yet another prestigious win for Custodian for Legal, coinciding with the launch of the new Konexo website.

    “Our partnership with Repstor continues to go from strength to strength, and this is down not just to our combined commitment to solving practical everyday productivity issues for in-house and private legal teams, but also the shift in the market to technology-enabled service efficiency. In the digital age, legal departments need to move with the times to meet business targets and add new value for clients. Custodian for Legal helps them do that.”

    Sheila Gormley, Director of Business Development at Repstor, commented:

    “We are immensely proud of our affiliation with Konexo and excited about the next chapter. We’re doing some great business together, and the future looks bright for our powerful joint proposition in Custodian for Legal.

    “We continue to invest heavily in our Custodian platform, in line with evolving market needs and advances in technology. Clients can now access Repstor Mobile, while Custodian for Microsoft Teams allows users to exploit the full potential of MS Teams in a controlled, manageable way, without risk of undermining organisations’ information compliance controls.”
