Firm implements Linetime’s Liberate software

Norwich based Rogers & Norton Limited has further expanded following its takeover of Nicholas Daykin & Co, another Norfolk based practice.

The newly enlarged firm will give Rogers & Norton an increased presence in the local area and allow those clients who are based in South Norfolk to access their solicitor without having to travel so far and will offer a wider range of legal services and expertise to clients of Nicholas Daykin & Co.

The two firms previously used differing legal software to support their businesses. As part of the review into consolidating the two businesses the firm made the clear decision to implement Linetime’s Liberate software throughout. This includes both practice and case management. To facilitate the transition Linetime were contracted to migrate the data to create a single combined system.

Director in charge of IT at the company, Bruce Faulkner said “We have a long track record of working with Linetime. When the time came to decide about IT for the expanded practice we had no hesitation selecting Linetime. We knew their consultancy team would easily transition both our systems into one so as to allow an almost seamless migration on takeover day.

“The user friendly nature of Linetime’s Liberate SE product has meant that staff at the Attleborough Office have easily been able to adapt to using it in place of their previous system. This was important to us since it enabled a smooth transfer from Nicholas Daykin & Co to Rogers & Norton with as little disruption as possible to staff and clients. Use of the same system throughout both offices will allow staff to operate from either office for the benefit of our clients and to offer a consistent service to our clients whichever office they use.”

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.
