Virtual Implementation Enabled 225 Year Old Firm Go Live During COVID-19 Lockdown
Enables legal team to work flexibly from anywhere, upholding highest client service standards
16th July 2020, LONDON, UK / ACTIONSTEP welcomes Hedges Law to their growing community of customer law firms. Hedges Law implemented Actionstep virtually during COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. This very modern 225 year old firm has embraced the benefit of cloud-based technology to enable their lawyers and staff to work flexibly from anywhere, while providing the best service and advice to their clients. Hedges Law is a top-rated, specialist family, private client, property & dispute resolution law firm based in Oxfordshire, UK with over 35 staff.
Advantage Consulting, a specialist business and technology consultancy for law firms - and one of Actionstep’s Certified Implementation Partners - worked with Hedges Law and Actionstep to migrate the firm from outdated on-premise technology, with a complicated and underperforming infrastructure, to an Actionstep system specifically tailored to Hedges’ practice areas and business requirements.
Hedges Law is one of many law firms that Actionstep and Advantage Consulting have helped move from on-premise systems to the cloud in order to systemise their processes and enable more flexible and efficient legal service delivery.
Wayne Pollock, Director of Central Services at Hedges Law, said “Today, we consider ourselves to be leaders in the use of true cloud-based technology to support our goal of delivering high-end legal services to our clients. Our people have been very surprised by the benefits of moving to a thoroughly modern practice management system. We believe if we can make our people happy, then we will make our clients happy. Actionstep and Advantage share our values and continue to work shoulder to shoulder with us to make everyone happy. Now that's what I call collaboration! They have helped us to do more with less, for less!”
James Shorey, VP UK at Actionstep commented “We love the opportunity to help firms who are looking to modernise, not only by upgrading from desktop to the cloud, but by enabling them to rethink their processes, workflows and data capture within their PMS. While the Hedges team are already seeing the benefits, this is a constant process of innovative thinking and improvement which our team at Actionstep will be working to enable as we continue to work together.“
Steven Blundell, Director of Advantage Consulting, said “It is a pleasure to work with such an innovative and forward thinking business such as Hedges Law. We work with hundreds of law firms, and Hedges stood out because they are continuously looking for new approaches to how they do law. Helping them use Actionstep to its full potential is a big part of that.”
