Commenting on the announcement, Tony Pepper, CEO, Egress Software Technologies said, “We are delighted to have been chosen by Blake Morgan to provide their users with a simple and secure way to encrypt the information they share. With the recent legislation from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) which mandates all law firms to nominate or employ a compliance officer, we are seeing more and more client’s position information security as a key priority. Without clear security policies and investment in the right technology Firms risk substantial regulatory fines and reputational damage.”

“Our new partnership enables Blake Morgan to maintain its reputation for embracing innovation and improving efficiency by offering clients a range of supporting services to help differentiate their Firm from other businesses in the legal market,” concludes Pepper.
