Linder Myers has signed contracts to implement a 200-user LawSoft 10 system from Legal Futures Associate Pilgrim Systems.

Headquartered in Manchester city centre, with offices in Shropshire and Lancashire, Linder Myers is a successful, growing, full-service business which caters for both corporate and private clients across a full range of practice areas.

It has recently made some strong new hires in order to continue its growth trends.

Peter Jones joins as head of IT, having previously worked for Walker Smith Way in Chester. Chris Hawley has become finance director, having held a similar role at Kemp Little. Both implemented LawSoft in their previous roles.

After experiencing the existing technology at Linder Myers, they recommended that new infrastructure and a consolidated practice management system had to be implemented to support the firm’s objectives. After assessing the market place, the firm decided relatively quickly to select Pilgrim’s LawSoft 10.

Mr Jones said: “I wanted to make sure I wasn’t just selecting LawSoft because I personally was comfortable with it. I had to make sure it was still the best-in-class system and that it was right for my new firm. I was heartened to see that Pilgrim has continued to invest in their software and am looking forward to working with a team I know well during the project and beyond.”

Mr Hawley added: “I already had a great relationship with Pilgrim through my experiences at Kemp Little but both Peter and I had to be objective when making this selection. It was an easy decision. There is nothing out there that touches LawSoft 10 and the Pilgrim team is a great bunch of people to work with.”

Colin Kennedy, Pilgrim’s chief operating officer, said: “It’s great to be working with Peter and Chris again. Their colleagues all seem very enthusiastic about the project. I am sure they will be long and happy customers.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
