Adams: Legal firms are in the content business and need to think, behave and operate more like a digital business

It’s all green lights for Peppermint Technology, the multi-award winning legal technology innovator, having just closed its financial year showing over 200% growth on last year and over £10 million in forward contracted revenue.

In the last 12 months they have added many prestigious and forward thinking clients taking the total client base to over 20 firms and more than 3,000 users.

New clients include Taylor&Emmet, Mayo Wynne Baxter, DezRezLegal, Gosschalks, Gepp & Sons, Hine Legal, Thor Lion, B P Collins and Ashton KCJ.

Peppermint’s results demonstrate law firms are quickly moving away from traditional legacy vendors in favour of modern, client centric, .

On the back of Peppermint’s success, Peppermint announced they will be adding a new product line for smaller firms under the brand of PeppDirect.

This will provide law firms, with little or no IT staff, with an “out-of-the-box” version of the Peppermint Platform complete with templates, workflows and dashboards.

PeppDirect launches later this month and is already gaining momentum with 3 firms signed up pre general release.

Peppermint Founder and CEO Arlene Adams says,

“Peppermint has the right product, in the right market, at the right time. Legal firms are facing multiple challenges from new entrants, margin pressure, legislative reforms and a shift in customer buying patterns. There is a growing realisation that customer and data centric technology, based on a Microsoft standard platform, is the cornerstone to addressing these challenges. Legal firms are in the content business and need to think, behave and operate more like a digital business from the front office to the back office. We help them do this.”

Peppermint has also received a number of notable industry accolades in recent months. In February its Founder and CEO, Arlene Adams, was named KnowList Leader of the Year and in June the product was awarded Best Cloud Application at the Cloud World Series Awards.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
