Lancashire based law firm, Watson Ramsbottom has announced its decision to implement Advanced Legal’s (Advanced’s) practice and case management (PCMS) solution, ALB. This makes the company the 300th firm to invest in ALB and establishes the software as the fastest growing PCMS in the market.

The six figure deal will see the firm replace its existing software with the more advanced ALB across its four offices in Blackburn, Accrington, Darwen and Great Harwood. Advanced’s support team will also enhance the firm’s IT infrastructure, modernising the practice and ALB’s customer portal will also improve interaction with clients.

ALB is a fully-integrated practice and case management system that is designed to help legal firms efficiently manage their clients, cases and documents. This implementation also includes the deployment of Advanced’s new Workflow toolkit, which will help improve the firm’s efficiencies and the Conveyancing Case app to enable automated processes throughout the practice. The firm will also use modules for Client Self Service, Marketing, and Wills and Deeds.

Stuart Maher, Director at Watson Ramsbottom, said: “We are looking forward to modernising our practice with ALB, which fits our needs perfectly.  As we look to improve client engagement, the automation that is provided by ALB will help us maximise efficiencies and ensure the customer has a first class experience.”

Doug Hargrove, Managing Director at Advanced Legal said:  “Watson Ramsbottom is the 300th firm to have joined our growing base of ALB customers.  ALB continues to be adopted at pace by the legal community and its popularity reflects the value it can deliver to its users.

“More and more legal practices are realising the benefits of deploying a fully-integrated PCMS and the release and take-up of Workflow for ALB will further enhance the value that clients can derive from their software as the ability to automate business processes becomes second nature.”

Advanced Legal, an Advanced Computer Software company, has secured more than 25 new ALB deals during the first three months of this year.

The ethics of the SRA’s social media warning notice

Mena Ruparel

Social media portals are regularly used by firms and those who work for law firms in both professional and personal capacities. Their informal nature and the fast pace of use makes it all too easy for regulated people to get carried away with online discussions or comments which can fall foul of the regulator. This is more likely to happen on social media platforms as these are virtual, accessed in the solicitor’s own time and space. It can be easy to forget that solicitors are regulated just the same at 11pm on their home computer as they are at 3pm in the office or at court.
