Legal

The legal sector is a people and knowledge business where productivity and value delivered to the client are paramount.

Key areas are effective communication, reducing paper-handling with digital systems, streamlining processes, and improving compliance and reducing risk.

Time recording and Practice Management Systems need to integrate seamlessly with CRM, Case Management and Document Management systems. Data must be effectively captured and managed throughout its lifecycle from live cases, through archiving, and ultimate deletion. Laptops, phones, tablet, intranets, client portals and video conferencing all need to work well and allow full access both in the office and remotely.

Increasingly, Artificial Intelligence (AI) based tools are important enablers to increase capacity and to speed up the delivery of client matters, but they need careful application and management by competent legal and technology experts.

In the modern legal market, effective use of IT, systems and digital is crucial to financial performance, good client service, and attracting and retaining great talent.

“St Philips is a rapidly expanding barristers chambers in Birmingham. Last year we completed an acquisition in Leeds and opened a new office in London. This expansion created technical and capacity issues in IT and the small IT team were struggling to manage the change. Freeman Clarke initially provided an IT Director to conduct an IT strategy review to identify if IT was “fit for purpose”. The Board agreed the recommendations from the review and, over the last 10 months, Freeman Clarke have been helping St Philips to deliver these recommendations and support St Philips’ ongoing growth.”
