Corporate Focus Transition Program

January 6, 2020 -- Corporate Focus has been serving companies and law firms since 1997. At the time, it was the premier entity-management platform of its kind. Given the technological advances we have seen over the last 20 plus years, Shareworks has made the decision to sunset Corporate Focus. 

Starting in Q2 2020, we will begin actively moving customers off of Corporate Focus.

Shareworks conducted a review of the market to identify comparable entity management software and selected Athennian as the recommended Corporate Focus transition partner.

Shareworks and Athennian have jointly developed an automated data migration tool to ensure a seamless transition of your data, documents and reports from Corporate Focus to Athennian.

This webpage provides information to help you through this transition and outlines the next steps you can take toward migrating your data.

You must book your migration by February 28, 2020  to reserve a 2020 migration date.
