Northampton based Max Engel & Co LLP signs up for ALB

Max Engel & Co LLP has become the 350th firm to sign up for ALB, ’s fully integrated practice and case management system (PCMS).

The multi-year deal will see the Northampton based law firm replace its existing system with ALB, which will be rolled out to the firm’s 17 staff in early 2015.

The firm has recently undertaken a complete review of its IT systems as it looks to update its business systems and modernise its practice infrastructure.  As a result, the firm selected Advanced Legal as its PCMS partner of choice.

Helen Carville, managing partner at Max Engel, said: “We needed an integrated solution that would remove manual activity and streamline our processes.  ALB gives us that package, pulling client, case and matter management into one location, centralising time recording and simplifying the business reporting process.

“We were not only impressed by the technology but also by the Advanced team who took the time to understand where we were as a practice and where we wanted to go.  They listened, engaged and delivered a solution to precisely meet our business needs.”

Advanced has seen rapid growth in market demand for its solutions during 2014, with more than 50 firms selecting ALB since March 2014.

Doug Hargrove, Managing Director at Advanced Legal, said: “It’s great to welcome Max Engel into our ALB community.  350 firms is a fantastic milestone for ALB and the increasing rate of adoption over the last 12 months simply shows that more and more firms are realising the value they can get from a fully integrated PCMS.”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

Catrina Denvir

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
