Blakemores Solicitors are one of the largest legal firms within the West Midlands. With a history that spans some fifty years, the firm is recognized for providing leading edge legal advice across all litigation fields; from personal injury to family to employment law. The firm employs over 200 staff, based largely from the two main head offices in Central Birmingham and Leamington Spa. Recently the firm launched a new type of innovative legal service – Lawyers2you – which brings legal advice direct to consumers, when and where they want it, across 21 high footfall sites like popular shopping centres across the West Midlands.
Since 2004, the firm has actively facilitated expansion with business growth of around 30% year on year. This, in addition to burgeoning data growth rates as email became the accepted primary business communication, has led to significant pressures on the size of the email store and the need to allocate significant sums of costly primary disk.
