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.”

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
