Attwaters Solicitors is swapping out its IRIS Aim practice management system for Legal Futures Associate Peppermint’s Legal Service Platform. Following a number of months' involvement with the Peppermint Partner Programme, Attwaters has made the decision to implement the platform during Q2 2012.

An ambitious and progressive law firm, Attwaters has clearly recognised the challenge that today’s legal providers face. With an impending merger that will double its offices and increase the staff count by 50%, it needed cutting-edge technology to take the business forward. Having considered the alternatives, Peppermint came out the winner.

Attwaters fully intends to exploit all that the Peppermint Platform has to offer to become ultra-competitive. Automation and workflow tools will allow them to offer highly cost-effective services, whilst the integral CRM capability will maximise business development efforts, both within its client base and to generate new business.

Practice Director, Ian Rintoul commented,

“It’s clear to most that the legal services market is changing and we need to be ready for it. We want to ensure that we improve our position to meet this situation head on, and we need the best available tools to do this. Peppermint offered these tools.

“No one knows what legal services will look like in the next few years so it’s important that we have a flexible business platform that can easily accommodate other related business units if we so require.”

Easy user adoption is also something that is key to Attwaters, and the familiar Microsoft interface has been confirmed as a huge benefit to aiding this.

Peppermint’s CEO, Arlene Adams added,

“Attwaters have been a valuable member of the partner programme over the last year and we are delighted to now be welcoming them to the Peppermint community as a Platform client. Clearly a forward thinking business they have grasped the benefit of adopting a single platform that will support their business now and in the future.”

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
