In a significant win for Linetime, leading Northern Ireland commercial practice Tughans Solicitors has signed up as a client of Liberate System following a detailed analysis of the market.

Tughans is an iManage client and uses Intapp for time recording. In addition to the requirement that its new practice and case management system improves efficiency, for Tughans it was key that Linetime integrates with those core systems. Linetime’s approach to converting data from its legacy Axxia system secured the decision.

Tughans’ contracts and technology partner Adrian O’Connell said: “We were impressed by Linetime’s approach to data migration, taking control of the whole conversion process from start to finish rather than putting the reliance on our team or a third party to prepare the data in advance. The fact that Linetime had also converted from the Axxia system many times previously also gave us additional confidence.”

Linetime was acquired by PracticeEvolve in February but is continuing to operate under its own brand.

David Boland, global CEO of PracticreEvolve and the new CEO at Linetime added: “We are extremely pleased to welcome such a prominent firm as Tughans to the Linetime client base and look forward to helping them achieve their goals for improving operational efficiency and customer service.”

Tughans is a leading law firm that was recently named as the Legal 500 Northern Ireland Law Firm of the year 2020 and has topped the Experian Deal and Advisor League Table five years in a row. Its clients include Diageo, Deloitte, Tesco, British Land, and Grant Thornton.
