By Legal Futures’ Associate Linetime
With 150 staff based in their Welsh HQ, Capital Law operate internationally as specialist providers of commercial legal services, with expertise ranging from banking to construction, energy, real estate and the public sector. Faced with a Practice Management System no longer suited to achieving their future goals, the firm embarked on a lengthy selection process, ultimately deciding that Linetime’s Liberate platform was the best all-round product to deliver their requirements. It was felt that Liberate’s Microsoft SQL database and full suite of applications could help the firm go to the next level in terms of efficiency, productivity and quality of customer service.
Liberate is to be rolled out to all users across all areas of the business, including finance and the CRM department. Of particular interest was the ability for users to reside within Outlook but retain the ability to perform automated time recording and crucial case management functions. Liberate will enable the standardisation of processes, accommodate file sharing and team working while assisting with adherence to GDPR and other aspects of risk management.
Rhys Davies, Capital Law’s IT Director, said “As the firm continues to go from strength to strength, we need a Practice Management System that can grow and develop with us. We chose Linetime’s Liberate because we believe it can make a significant improvement in our time recording, file administration and business intelligence. We’re looking forward to working with the Linetime team to implement the system in the summer of 2020.”
Phil Snee – Development Director at Linetime: “We are pleased to announce the addition of another high calibre member to the Linetime and Liberate fraternity. It has been a long-term strategy of Linetime to ensure that the system will cater for all types of legal work, including the more complex and ad-hoc areas. We remain committed to a policy of continuous but calculated product development and look forward to Capital Law benefitting from this work in the medium and longer term.”
