Warwickshire-based Wright Hassall is a leading legal practice that has, over the last couple of years, invested in a far-reaching technology overhaul to enhance service delivery to clients and underpin the strategic goals of its dynamic management team.

Central to this process will be the implementation of Pilgrim’s LawSoft practice management solution, which is set to bring significant process improvements and link together other best of breed components within the practice, such as the Interwoven document management system. Pilgrim Systems is a Legal Futures Associate.

James Hillard, partner and COO at Wright Hassall, says: “While we have known for some considerable time now that Pilgrim was our preferred supplier, we had a number of other projects to complete that were necessary in order to create the first-class technology environment we were striving for and in which LawSoft is a crucial element.

“In reaching that conclusion we undertook considerable due diligence on both sides – well beyond the usual tyre kicking – and are very confident that LawSoft is the correct solution for us.”

Pilgrim COO Colin Kennedy said: “Over the course of the last couple of years, we have worked closely with James and Matthew Cleverdon [Wright Hassall’s IT director]. We have witnessed first-hand their attention to detail and careful planning that has resulted in an excellent IT infrastructure within this ambitious practice.

“As such Wright Hassall is a very welcome addition to the growing list of Elite conversions we have undertaken and which are clearly demonstrating our credentials as a top-flight practice management solution providing a genuine UK-based alternative for leading firms.”

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
