LONDON, U.K., 11 December 2018 – Top 100 UK multi-disciplinary law firm Walker Morris is investing in Lexis® Visualfiles™ to deliver the stringent technology, efficiency and risk management requirements of customers and effectively compete with other high calibre law firms in its market segment. Initially the solution will be deployed to the firm’s mortgage repossession department, with a subsequent implementation to 100 users in the Collections & Recoveries and Banking & Finance Litigation departments.
Rob Aberdein, Partner at Walker Morris, explained the rationale for this investment, "We are a progressive and ambitious law firm, so investing in the right technology is key. The great thing about Visualfiles is that it can be deployed in the business exactly as we want it to be. At one end of the spectrum, it allows us the flexibility to develop new and innovative ways of working that will set us noticeably apart in the industry. At the other end, we can simply use the standard functionality for everyday operations such as time recording. With all of this, we can use the Visualfiles Robot technology to remove human interaction and automate processes to ensure that we are as efficient as possible; which is vital when managing large volume of transactions."
Rob added, "Considering litigation, no two cases are alike because it isn’t a linear process and there are innumerable, complex variants between matters. Having workflows and fundamental decision-making processes that guide lawyers and paralegals through the core and administrative tasks, enables the individuals to focus on the legal complexities that require expert judgement rather than the more repetitive lower skill work. The efficiencies delivered facilitate competitive pricing, reduce risk and ultimately deliver a better client service."
Walker Morris is replacing its in-house system with Visualfiles to enable the firm to take advantage of the next era of case management.
