Optima Legal has partnered with SunGard for its disaster recovery and business continuity plan
National law firm Optima Legal has partnered with SunGard Availability Services for its disaster recovery and business continuity plan to cover the firm’s multi-jurisdictional operation.
Operating from two off-site facilities in England and Scotland, Optima Legal’s disaster recovery function allows its clients to continue with a ‘business as usual’ approach in an emergency situation.
The disaster recovery locations hold over 300 desk positions throughout the two sites, which can be operational within 72 hours.
“It is important that we have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan that covers all eventualities across multiple jurisdictions.
With the importance of technology and the increased use of the internet transforming the way Optima Legal delivers innovative legal services, keeping employees and clients connected is vital to providing an uninterrupted quality service, said SunGard.
Adrian Lamb, chief executive of Optima Legal said: ‘With the addition of our Scottish capability, it is important that we have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan that covers all eventualities across multiple jurisdictions. Working in partnership with SunGard allows us to be confident the business will continue operating as usual during unexpected disruptions without compromising the high service levels clients have come to expect from Optima Legal.’
