AdvancedLegal200Eatons Solicitors has become the 500th firm to sign up for ALB, the fully integrated practice and case management system (PCMS) from Advanced Legal (Advanced).

More than 150 firms have selected ALB in the past year, making it the solution of choice for forward-thinking organisations wanting to maximise efficiency and profitability through integrated technology. Recent customer wins for Advanced include HCB, Spires and Smith Partnership.

Eatons Solicitors is a West Yorkshire-based firm offering a wide range of corporate and personal legal services across its offices in Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate, Otley and Ilkley. Established in 1887, the firm prides itself on the quality of its services, tailored to meet the needs of each individual client.

The multi-year contract will enable the firm to ­take advantage of productivity benefits gained from ALB’s robust and intuitive technology to enhance its service offering to clients.

Eatons chose to upgrade from its existing system to ALB, a fully integrated PCMS which streamlines manual paper-based processes, ensuring that cases progress efficiently. The system also helps to introduce consistency across the firm, minimising risk and increasing productivity.

Lloyd Bowman, practice director at Eatons Solicitors, comments: “We wanted to upgrade our software solutions, not only to remain on a fully supported platform, but also to take advantage of the efficiencies offered by a more modern solution.

“Having worked with Advanced for many years, they were the obvious choice when looking to update our software. ALB will give us everything we need from a PCMS, allowing us to work more effectively with the confidence that we will be supported both now and in the future.

“Advanced’s ongoing investment in the ALB platform also ensures that the software will develop and grow in line with our business.”

Doug Hargrove, managing director, Advanced Legal, comments: “I am delighted that we have signed our 500th ALB customer which highlights the growing number of firms who are adopting our scalable, integrated and fully supported technology.

“The fact that existing customers like Eatons Solicitors continue to work with us when upgrading their systems is testament to both the relationships we build with our clients and the significant benefits that can be seen by implementing ALB.”

Be careful you do not leave anything behind: will we see the end of chambers?

Charles Feeny

Experience of practice by digital support suggests that working practices will become much more informal and spontaneous, not requiring support by specific entities or even contractual arrangements. This is likely to be particularly true of the Bar, which is or should be a profession focusing on individuals. The future of the Bar is more likely to resemble a library as seen in Scotland and Ireland – albeit an electronic library – rather than the traditional chambers structure.
