    There is another really important issue for law firm purchasers to consider.

    Document repositories in law firms often present very different challenges than in other organisations. In the first place, there are regulatory and other restrictions on information that need to be respected by the search engine.

    More importantly, the average law firm DMS will include standard or precedent documents as well as huge numbers of variations on those documents. Sometimes a fee-earner will need to find the precedent or a good example of a facility agreement (for example), and sometimes they will need to locate a specific version of the document (out of the thousands that have been created and stored).
