Champlain College


Karen provides daily support to the attorneys she and her team serve, but her most recent accomplishments include the following:

  • Karen recently facilitated a technology assessment by Cornerstone.IT to confirm the firm’s technology is at par with industry standards and trends, and map out an action plan to meet the business goals.
  • Karen and her team manage the firm’s metro area network linking five offices, with an infrastructure that leverages secure cloud applications allowing remote access from any Internet connection.
  • To ensure Downs Rachlin Martin attorneys have support to maintain consistently high client-service levels, Karen engages a 24/7/365 help desk, with supervisory back-up by her team, and facilitates on-going training and support for all technology at the firm.
