Another Elite site goes live with Pilgrim’s Lawsoft

Bolt Burdon, Bolt Burdon Kemp and Igloo, two law firms and their independent service partnership, have gone live with LawSoft from Legal Futures Associate Pilgrim Systems.

The law firms are based in Islington, London. Bolt Burdon focuses on both commercial and private client work. Bolt Burdon Kemp specialises in personal injury, clinical negligence, professional negligence and military claims. Igloo provides support and back-office systems, including technology operations for both firms.

As well as the functionality and quality of the LawSoft solution, the firms’ selection was based as much on Pilgrim’s ability to migrate and convert one Elite database into three LawSoft systems. To convert an Elite database into a single recipient system is often challenging in itself, given the multi-table nature of its underlying design. To convert and merge one into three requires real talent, perseverance and all-round cooperation.

Lynne Burdon, managing partner of both law firms, said: “We have been working with Pilgrim for several months now and to be honest there have been times when I think we wondered if we’d reach the final destination. The project has had its trials and tribulations but thanks in no short order to the combined team’s ‘can do’ attitude, we got there.

“We now look forward to phase two and to becoming an active member of the LawSoft user community, helping Pilgrim shape its software for the future.”

Colin Kennedy, Pilgrim’s COO, said: “I would like to thank Lynne and her team for their pragmatic attitude and desire to succeed. My colleagues that have been directly involved in this project feel a great sense of achievement now that the three firms have gone live. If anyone is thinking of switching from their Elite system soon, come and speak to us about data conversion. I don’t think there is anything we do not know about the subject!”

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
