Debenhams Ottaway Solicitors is the latest firm to join the growing number of leading law firms investing in the multi-award winning Peppermint Legal Service Platform. The leading Hertfordshire law firm serves its community from offices in St Albans and Radlett and as part of an IT overhaul has now signed a 10 year contract with the technology innovator Peppermint for its legal software.

Debenhams Ottaway Solicitors will roll out the Peppermint Legal Service Platform across its entire law firm, encompassing 100+ staff, replacing its legacy practice and case management, accounts and document management systems with the next generation of legal software.

“Following a competitive tender process and thorough due diligence, Debenhams Ottaway chose Peppermint as our preferred legal software supplier as it represented by far the best solution to the growing needs of our business and clients. Going forward we will have access to the very best legal software available which will enable us to deliver our legal products faster and more efficiently, thereby improving client service levels even further.”

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
