Thorsteinssons LLP is Canada’s largest law firm practicing exclusively in taxation law. They were looking to develop a remote solution for their organization that was secure, scalable, and cost efficient.



Thorsteinssons was looking to develop a remote solution for staff who had a no remote access to their desktop. They had a rudimentary VPN solution that wasn’t scaled to the entire office or available to everyone, and was technically complex for the general user.

With a global pandemic imminent, Softlanding was approached to spearhead the project because their status as a strategic Microsoft partner and their history of successful implementations.

Softlanding recommended Microsoft’s Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) as a solution for Thorsteinssons’ needs as it is not only scalable, but it is built on the familiarity and compatibility of Windows 10.

A customized WVD solution in Azure was implemented for Thorsteinssons that tailored to their specific application set and infrastructure. Softlanding consultants deployed and scaled the virtualization requirements, and provided post-implement support to ensure appropriate knowledge transfer and training.

The solution was perfectly timed with the influx of remote working, and provided Thorsteinssons with the confidence that they are protected while doing so.
