Prominent Australian law firm migrates to the Aderant Expert practice management legal software

MELBOURNE – 22 January 2015 – Aderant, the world’s largest independent legal software company, announced today that one of Australia’s premier law firms, Arnold Bloch Leibler (ABL), selected Aderant Expert as its new practice management system following a thorough review of the market and a detailed evaluation process. Taking advantage of their trusted relationship with Aderant and its proven expertise in legal software and law firm management, dedication to client service and thriving user community, ABL will also be implementing Expert MatterWorksTM, Paperless Billings, Collections and Workflow.

With approximately 125 fee-earners, ABL enjoys long-standing relationships with many of Australia’s leading corporations and private family groups, managing a wide variety of significant and complex matters on behalf of their clients. Many of the firm’s matters are long-running and as such, managing the matter lifecycle is a priority. The Aderant Expert MatterWorks application was a key component of the reason why ABL chose this solution.

ABL stated that another factor in the selection of the Aderant Expert solution was the robustness of the solution and how much functionality exists ‘out-of-the-box’ compared to other alternatives which requires a greater level of customization as standard.

David Leong, CIO of Arnold Bloch Leibler, is looking forward to their migration to Expert, scheduled to start in early 2015. “In an age where innovation is led by technology,” he commented, “we need a solution that will keep up with client demands and continuous process improvement. The functionality Aderant Expert offers helps us to be more efficient and will enable better business decisions.”

Darren Roberts, Director of Professional Services for the Australasian region at Aderant, commented that “The legal industry is moving so fast and firms are using technology to innovate.” Roberts continued, “Many firms operate legacy systems and we want to make sure migration to our Expert solution is as easy and fast as possible.. We know change is hard. But we also know that change is good and the right solution can make a dramatic impact on a firm’s profitability and success.”
