Leading UK private client firm and technology, media and entertainment firm Harbottle & Lewis has chosen Aderant Expert as their new law practice management system, swapping out end of life PMS Lexis Axxia.
A statement out today (16 May) will say that Aderant Expert was the clear choice, citing user friendliness.
“We knew we needed an easy-to-use product that allowed us to continue to grow, yet reflected our uncomplicated business model,” says Derek Godfrey, Harbottle & Lewis LLP’s chief operating officer. “Aderant offered a simple and more user-friendly option, whilst still allowing us to perform all of our required business processes.” We can’t confirm at this stage which other systems the firm looked at.
Godfrey, who is a partner, is a member of the UK top 100 firm’s strategy and management committee, responsible for setting the firm’s strategy as well as ensuring its delivery. He is also the firm’s compliance officer for finance and administration (COFA) and is responsible for all aspects of the firm’s support services.
Chris Cartrett, Aderant’s executive vice president, said: “The firm had a clear vision for what success would mean for them and found a comprehensive solution in Aderant Expert that fulfills that vision.”
The last Axxia swapout we wrote about also went to Aderant: DMH Stallard selected Aderant Expert and Handshake.
