Castrum for Legal Processes

The Castrum information management platform enables legal practitioners to share information between themselves and third parties confidentially, leaving behind a secure audit trail.

Castrum’s collaborative software gives legal practitioners a highly secure means of sharing information pertaining to a specific matter, both inside and outside the practice. It ensures that busy professionals always have direct access to the latest information and can share it with advisors, associates and clients easily.

Here are the main benefits of using Castrum in the legal sector:


We understand that making case materials available for review and comment can be a challenge, particularly when this involves individuals outside of the practice. Our platform is a leading project management tool that solves this issue with its secure portal, which is designed to hold categorised information and make it available to authenticated users.  The sharing portal generates a secure ‘workspace’ for each matter that needs to be shared. It also automatically uploads the associated information, applying permissions for each invited user based on his or her role.  All this helps identify the platform as a key business process management asset.


The security of your documents is one of our top priorities. Thanks to the latest encryption technology and restricted access options, you can be sure that information will never fall into the wrong hands.

Paper to digital conversion

The Castrum Platform uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to convert scanned information into textual format so it can be searched alongside electronic uploads. As a result, there is no disconnection between paper and digital sources of information.

Audit trail and lifecycle

Thanks to the contemporary nature of Castrum’s tamperproof audit tool, you can rely on an audit trail that gives you a complete history when researching how a job was tackled. In many cases a task will be subject to a specific lifecycle, whereby it moves through a set of pre-defined stages with different users having different responsibilities at each point.  A good example of this is the traditional property transaction, which moves from handshake, through exchange, to completion. Castrum caters for this scenario with a flexible approach to workflow that can model virtually any legal process and enforce its lifecycle.
