Leading law firm, Walker Morris, has become an early adopter in the UK legal market of the fast-growing verification software platform, Atticus.
The adoption of exciting legal technology such as Atticus is part of a planned programme of IT investments aimed at improving internal efficiencies and delivering a better client experience for Walker Morris’ national and internal client base.
In 2019, the firm expanded its Technology & Digital practice with the appointment of Sally Mewies, who is nationally recognised in her field. Sally’s appointment continues Walker Morris’ significant investment in technology, both in terms of its client offering and operationally.
A solution to a clear problem
Business Portfolio Manager, Kevan Mahoney commented on the adoption of Atticus in the firm.
“Atticus is our most recent step in consistently delivering against our technology-driven, firm-wide strategy, in the areas of document management, case management, time recording and AI product,” he said
Senior Knowledge Lawyer, Rachel Neems explained how Atticus had become the solution they needed to solve a mundane process for their team.
Verification has historically been a painful manual process across the global legal industry,” Rachel said.
“Atticus’s game-changing verification software digitises this process and – in doing so – makes verification much faster; which is a huge efficiency-gain for a process that is always conducted under huge time pressures.”
Atticus co-founder and COO, Saul Wakerman explained the Atticus team were delighted to be working with innovative UK law firms like Walker Morris.
“They’ve shown a real appetite to move at pace in the deployment of Atticus across their corporate practice for the benefit of their legal teams and clients,” Saul said.
