Convene Customer Success

Linklaters LLP

We spoke to Sarah Carrodus, Partnership Board Support, and Personal Assistant to the Global HR Director at Linklaters LLP about how Convene has streamlined their meeting process and reduced paper usage.

Linklaters LLP is a multinational law firm headquartered in London. Founded in 1838, it is a member of the Magic Circle of elite British law firms. It currently employs over 2,800 lawyers across 30 offices in 20 countries. They have been using Convene since 2016.

Considering a Board solution

Convene was in place prior to my joining Linklaters, but one of the key reasons was because, being a legal firm, we were dealing with very high volumes of paper. We were printing a large number of paper bundles. There was also a need to be able to instantly and easily access documents which was not possible before Convene was implemented.

Before Convene, meeting papers had to be circulated via email, this was costly in terms of time, but also it made it difficult if meeting papers were submitted late, or if any documents had to be removed or amended once the meeting pack had been compiled.

'As documents are so easily accessible with Convene, there is a smoother meeting flow and discussions can continue unhindered since all attendees have access to the same information'


Extensive Usage

We had 100 licenses in place, and this has increased to 120. Convene is used by our Executive committee and Partnership Board which has six committees under that heading. It is also used by our committee in Asia. It’s also used by our administrators who find it very easy to set up a meeting and attach the relevant documents.
