UK-based professional services firm Maitland has implemented Aderant Expert as the new practice management system for its legal advisory division. After a thorough evaluation of several suppliers, Maitland selected Aderant Expert in December 2009.
Maitland replaced its legacy applications for time recording and accounting with Aderant Expert’s time capture and financial management system, which have been rolled out across seven locations in six countries, making full use of the multi-jurisdictional financial management functionality.

The project was completed within the projected time frame and budget in the record time of only five months using Aderant Accelerate, a jump start implementation approach that is aimed at reducing implementation time and cost for firms. Based on best practice examples from a broad range of projects, a set of predefined parameters, processes, and templates allowed the project team to quickly decide where modifications were needed and in which areas the suggested configurations could be used.

Comments Myles Allison, Legal Advisory CEO for Maitland: “After substantial organic growth over the last years, it was time for our firm to take the next step with a unified solution that supports our business with state of the art practice management functionality. The best practice recommendations of the Aderant Professional Services team meant that we didn’t have to start the implementation with a clean slate but could hit the ground running and make modifications or additions only where required. I’m pleased to say that we met all our project targets, which makes this a great success.”
