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.

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
