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.

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
