“I would recommend Athennian to not just law firms but to in-house legal departments like us as well. Athennian isn’t a six month implementation - we had to dedicate a resource for a few weeks to support the migration from our side, and then we were up and running. It was very painless. Athennian’s value for time and value for dollars is very high.”
