The Bar Conference is the flagship event of The Bar Council, attracting more than 600 delegates from the bar including QCs, barristers, senior chambers managers and clerks. The conference offers attendees the opportunity to discuss key issues affecting today’s bar. The theme this year is “Celebrating Excellence” and the keynote speaker is Justice of The Supreme Court, The Rt Hon Lord Hughes of Ombersley.
Situated on stand two at the event, Advanced will be demonstrating MLC, its market leading chambers management software solution. The solution offers diary, case management, fees and billing modules, allowing chambers to increase efficiency and ensure best practice whilst maintaining high levels of client service.
Advanced recently released its latest version of the software, MLC 3.4, which includes a range of new functionality including foreign currency billing, individual bill chasing and cost monitoring. The system offers more flexible methods for billing in line with market needs and when working with international clients.
One of the most recent firms to go live with MLC is Senate House Chambers, a Northampton-based set, with 17 barristers, which began using the solution in August. The Chambers will use the solution to effectively manage their chambers, monitor business performance and ensure growth.
Advanced will also be displaying its time recording solution, Time Tracker powered by Rekoop, which enables time to be recorded automatically, increasing accuracy and making client billing easier.
Doug Hargrove, managing director, Advanced Legal, comments: “Advanced are pleased to once again be exhibiting at the Bar Conference. The event always provides us with an unparalleled opportunity to meet with members of chambers of all sizes in order to demonstrate how our products can benefit forward thinking firms and help them to meet the challenges of today’s legal market.”
