Top 200 law firm Stevens & Bolton LLP has finalised contracts with Legal Futures Associate Pilgrim Systems to replace its legacy practice management system with LawSoft.

Based in Guildford, Stevens & Bolton LLP is one of the country’s leading regional law firms, with a national reputation for service and quality. Clients include household-name PLCs, other major corporates, owner managed businesses and high net-worth individuals. Recognised in 21 specialist practice areas in the leading independent legal directories, the firm was awarded “National Law Firm of the Year” at the 2009 Legal Business Awards and voted Insider Dealmakers’ “Corporate Law Firm of the Year” for the past five years.

Stevens & Bolton set out to select an integrated practice management system that would facilitate operational efficiency and improve management reporting. The project will encompass a number of key areas, including workflow, matter management, CRM, improved time recording, improved billing and credit control, matter costing and planning, management information and KPIs.

The firm’s chief operating officer, Adrian Bourne, said: “We were looking for a single product that could cater for a wide-ranging set of requirements that will support our continued drive to improve our business. LawSoft is the only product that has both the breadth and depth of functionality that we require. We have enjoyed our dealings with Pilgrim to date and are looking forward to working with them for many years to come.” 

Colin Kennedy, Pilgrim’s COO, said: “Every time a firm selects us as its next generation PMS supplier, we are extremely proud that another team of individuals has seen fit to put their faith in us and our software. Stevens & Bolton is a very successful firm that knows what it takes to succeed in the 2010s. We have already developed a great relationship with the firm. We expect them to become an active member of our user community.”
