Miller Thomson chooses Aderant Expert legal software to support critical business initiatives

ATLANTA, June 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aderant, the world's largest independent legal software company, today announced that Canadian law firm Miller Thomson has selected Aderant Expert for its next-generation practice and financial management system.

Miller Thomson, with nearly 500 lawyers in 11 locations across Canada, enjoys a reputation as one of the country's most respected business law firms. The firm recently reorganized around practice groups, enabling a more nationalized and less office-centric approach. As a result, it found itself in need of a comprehensive, integrated solution that would seamlessly accommodate a slew of financial, administrative and client demands.

"One of the key differentiators was Aderant Expert's tightly integrated approach, which eliminates the need to manage a variety of third-party applications," commented Richard Van Dyk, CIO of Miller Thomson. "We needed a robust, cost-effective solution that addresses our key organizational and business initiatives while providing us with a secure path for the future. We are looking forward to the expertise and organizational professionalism Aderant brings as a business partner, as well as the full suite of out-of-the-box capabilities Aderant Expert delivers. Additionally, the system's built-in flexibility will let us tailor the solution to changing requirements as our business evolves."

Aderant Expert features a modular structure that's built on a common framework, providing extensive capabilities in a flexible and scalable package. This approach ensures an efficient and tightly integrated solution, enabling essential business processes to share data and enabling users to share intelligence. In addition to core Aderant Expert functionality, Miller Thomson will extend the solution's capabilities by implementing the Expert Paperless Billing, Found Time, On the Go Time, Collections, MatterWorks™ and BudgetWise™ modules, as well as the ClearView business intelligence suite.

"We're looking forward to partnering with Miller Thomson to significantly improve their key practice and financial management systems," noted Aderant CEO Chris Giglio. "Our comprehensive approach and experienced Canadian team make us uniquely qualified to help Miller Thomson meet their changing business needs – now and long into the future. As the 31st law firm switch to Aderant from Elite in the last few years, Miller Thomson's decision reflects that more law firms are seeking powerful, easy-to-use, capabilities that create operational excellence today, while supporting growth for the future—and Aderant is working hard to fill that void."
