LONDON, Aug. 17, 2011 – Top 50 UK law firm Mills & Reeve has selected MatterSphere (formerly MatterCentre, created under the previous company FWBS) to increase matter management efficiency by automating processes and creating a 360-degree view of its clients and matters. The extra improvement in efficiency will ultimately enable Mills & Reeve to deliver better value to its clients.
Mills & Reeve is ranked among the 50 largest law firms in the UK with 97 partners and over 800 employees across their 6 offices in Cambridge, Birmingham, Leeds, London, Manchester, and Norwich. As a full-service law firm, Mills & Reeve is able to advise their clients, who range from PLCs and multinationals to start-ups and small to medium-sized businesses, on an array of legal issues. The implementation of MatterSphere will enable the growing firm to share knowledge effectively and manage matters across the whole firm while continuing the high level of service it is recognized to offer to its clients.
“As a leading national law firm, we are committed to delivering outstanding client service,” said Mark Finch, director of Finance at Mills & Reeve. “Having the best systems available enables us to deliver better value to our clients and manage matters more efficiently. Selecting MatterSphere for the whole firm was an important strategic decision for us, made easier by the proactive approach of the implementation team. The system will enable us to provide greater cost certainty and transparency to clients whilst helping us to comply with OFR, which comes into effect in October this year.”
“Through our MatterSphere solution we are providing industry-leading productivity gains to fee earners with ease of use and adoption, all from within the familiarity of the Microsoft Office environment. We are delighted to be helping Mills & Reeve improve management of its cases, matters, and other critical processes,” said Mark Craddock, MatterSphere Sales & Marketing Director.
