Commercial law firm Brabners, has selected Lexis® InterAction® as its customer relationship management (CRM) solution of choice from LexisNexis® Enterprise Solutions, a technology provider who works in partnership with customers to help transform legal services. InterAction will facilitate greater collaboration among fee earners across Brabners’ practice areas to deliver a better service to clients. Over 340 fee earners and staff will have access to InterAction across the firm’s three offices in Liverpool, Manchester and Preston.

InterAction will provide fee earners with a holistic view of contacts; and incrementally build a picture of client relationships in the system by automatically capturing phone calls, meetings and other types of communication. The solution will also identify new contacts and update contact details without fee earner intervention.  All this is enabled by the unique passive data management capabilities provided by InterAction, which eliminates the need for fee earners to manually input client information into the system. InterAction Mobility, the mobile solution facilitating access to the CRM data ‘on the go’, will allow fee earners to securely retrieve the relationship intelligence in InterAction via their smartphones or mobile devices when working remotely or on the move.

Brabners chose InterAction for its suitability for professional services firms, superior relationship intelligence-related functionality and ease of integration with other business systems. InterAction is being integrated with Brabners’ financial system for 360-degree visibility of every single client.

“Investing in technology is a crucial element of our growth strategy and as part of our ongoing focus on client service and our employer brand credentials, we are committing a significant investment in InterAction to ensure outstanding client account management,” explained Nicola Burns, Regional CRM Manager at Brabners. “InterAction will provide relationship intelligence that fee earners can use to improve service to clients.”

The marketing and business development teams at Brabners will also use InterAction for their day-to-day departmental activities.

Andy Sparkes, General Manager at LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions commented, “Brabners truly recognises the value of CRM for its business. CRM delivers the most benefit when it is embraced by fee earners – after all they are the ones who hold the client and business relationships, which they must continuously nurture. Such an approach encourages customer loyalty and supports business growth. With InterAction, fee earners at Brabners will have relationship intelligence at their fingertips, which they can astutely use to meet the needs of their clients.”

The Lexis InterAction customer relationship management solution is designed for professional services organisations to help drive business relationships, accelerate firm growth and increase revenue.  By providing powerful relationship intelligence that goes beyond ‘who knows whom’, the solution uncovers unanticipated risks, facilitates personalised and streamlined communications and enables execution of business development plans that can be measured by client, segment or industry – all enabling firms to deliver value and exceed client expectations. InterAction can be accessed by users from within Microsoft Outlook and ‘on the move’ from a range of mobile devices.

‘No, minister – CMCs are not the answer to your problem’

Qamar Anwar 2

Last month, MPs on the justice select committee asked minister Lord Keen what would happen when the government went ahead with its plan to raise the small claims limit for personal injury claims (from £1,000 to £5,000 for road traffic related claims and to £2,000 for everything else). As it is a jurisdiction in which lawyers do not generally operate – because legal costs are not recoverable – who might help claimants navigate what can still be a complex process? His answer, surprisingly, was claims management companies.
