Tees Law, the major regional legal firm, has selected Peppermint Technology to power a client service transformation underpinned by Peppermint’s single connected enterprise platform, spanning CRM, financials and legal process automation.

Tees Law senior partner David Redfern says: “We chose Peppermint following an extensive review.

“Like most firms, we want to drive down back office overheads, automating routine processes is one way of doing this. We also want to give our people much faster and more complete information support and tools and processes to share information within client teams. The bottom line should be more time spent on delivering value to clients.”

Redfern continues: “Technology is highly strategic to realising our customer service vision. Our clients want us to be transparent and flexible in our fee structures. They want us to respond quickly. They want solutions tailored to their needs, delivered efficiently and cost-effectively.

“Our technology decisions are mission critical to meeting these client expectations, so we considered the technology options very carefully before selecting Peppermint.”

Tees Law has a history of innovation, particularly in client service. The last few years have seen the appointment of a non-lawyer CEO, a dedicated Client Services Director, Incorporation, and a string of mergers to extend its service footprint.

Today the firm has more than 230 solicitors and support staff, with offices in Hertfordshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire.

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
