Former flagship Timeslice site Travers Smith selects Aderant Expert

Big news today (17 April) for Aderant, which will shortly announce that Travers Smith has selected Aderant Expert as its new practice management system.
The UK top 50 firm, which has offices in the City of London and Paris, has been using UK vendor Timeslice for decades and was the UK vendor’s flagship law firm site. We reported in 2004 that Travers (then Travers Smith Braithwaite), already a longtime Timeslice user, had just exchanged contracts to implement Timeslice’s latest gen Lawman practice management system.
In the Orange Rag out on 25 April we will bring you more detail on the Aderant selection, but Travers is said to have required a software with “extensive off-the-shelf functionality and more crucially, a solid roadmap of future development.”
“We’re very excited to be teaming with Aderant to develop and implement their practice management system solution,” said Travers Smith’s finance director, Paul Johnson. “We believe this represents a significant opportunity for the firm, to enhance our financial systems at an exciting time of technology innovation.”
Travers, which in January selected NetDocuments to replace its legacy OpenText document management system, currently has many systems-related projects underway, which hinge on a speedy and successful implementation of Aderant Expert. “Given Aderant’s reliable track record for implementations, the firm felt comfortable selecting Aderant over other available solutions,” Aderant will say in a release today.
“As we continue to expand in the United Kingdom and the European region, Aderant is thrilled to partner with law firms like Travers Smith. Aderant Expert supports law firms and their business goals by giving them smart and efficient tools to move their firms into the future,” said Aderant’s Executive Vice President, Chris Cartrett.
According to the Legal IT Insider Top 200, which is currently being updated, Aderant now has 10 of the top 50 UK law firm sites.
