Warwickshire-based Wright Hassall is a leading legal practice that has, over the last couple of years, invested in a far-reaching technology overhaul to enhance service delivery to clients and underpin the strategic goals of its dynamic management team.

Central to this process will be the implementation of Pilgrim’s LawSoft practice management solution, which is set to bring significant process improvements and link together other best of breed components within the practice, such as the Interwoven document management system. Pilgrim Systems is a Legal Futures Associate.

James Hillard, partner and COO at Wright Hassall, says: “While we have known for some considerable time now that Pilgrim was our preferred supplier, we had a number of other projects to complete that were necessary in order to create the first-class technology environment we were striving for and in which LawSoft is a crucial element.

“In reaching that conclusion we undertook considerable due diligence on both sides – well beyond the usual tyre kicking – and are very confident that LawSoft is the correct solution for us.”

Pilgrim COO Colin Kennedy said: “Over the course of the last couple of years, we have worked closely with James and Matthew Cleverdon [Wright Hassall’s IT director]. We have witnessed first-hand their attention to detail and careful planning that has resulted in an excellent IT infrastructure within this ambitious practice.

“As such Wright Hassall is a very welcome addition to the growing list of Elite conversions we have undertaken and which are clearly demonstrating our credentials as a top-flight practice management solution providing a genuine UK-based alternative for leading firms.”

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.
