IRIS Legal is delighted to announce a major new deal with Band Hatton Button LLP that will see the firm migrate its current practice management solution onto the fully managed IRIS Law Business hosted platform.

This complex agreement will see three Coventry-based legal firms (Band Hatton, Button Legal and Varley Hibbs) merge in April, doubling their number of users to around 80. They will require the migration and consolidation of databases from three different incumbent systems, including moving from a Tikit TFB system to IRIS Law Business (ILB).

Band Hatton Button selected IRIS Law Business ahead of other solutions  as their platform of choice to support an ambitious and growing new law firm into the future. The move into a hosted environment will provide easy access for the various staff in different office locations and in addition to delivering efficiency, will provide peace of mind with reliability and ensuring business continuity across all their core systems.

Haydn Jones, Partner at Band Hatton LLP, said: “The merger with Button Legal and Varley Hibbs is a key move for all three firms that will increase our expertise and product offerings to become one of the strongest legal practices in the area. A smooth and professional transition is essential and we are certain IRIS Legal is the right choice for us in this crucial period. We are familiar with their vast experience and success with database migration and, supported by our own experience, we are confident that this is a positive step towards a bright future as we look forward to exciting times ahead for Band Hatton Button LLP.”

Jitendra Valera (JV), Chief Marketing Officer at IRIS Legal, said: “I am delighted that Band Hatton Button LLP has committed its long-term future to IRIS Legal. This contract win is clear endorsement that IRIS Law Business is the platform of choice for forward-thinking, growing law firms and that IRIS Legal has the expertise necessary to successfully manage even the most complex of technical transitions effectively. This deal also recognises that IRIS Legal has capabilities far beyond software provision and that our key strength is as a single source provider, integrating applications with a full range of hosting and technical support services. Our business philosophy is to work closely with our customers, understanding their long term vision and ensuring we provide the best solutions to give them the greatest chance of future success and we are thrilled that this is resulting in a growing number of both new and existing customers selecting IRIS Legal as their long-term partner of choice.”

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.
