Maynard Cooper & Gale to install Aderant Expert to support geographical expansion

ATLANTA, June 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aderant, the world's largest independent legal software company, today announced that nationally recognized law firm Maynard Cooper & Gale has selected Aderant Expert to replace the firm's legacy Thomson Reuters Elite Enterprise installation. Aderant Expert will support Maynard Cooper's dynamic business requirements as it expands its geographic footprint beyond its historic base in Alabama.

Founded in 1984, Maynard Cooper & Gale has more than 230 attorneys and offices in Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile, Tuscaloosa and Montgomery, as well as in San Francisco, California. Part of the Lex Mundi global network, Maynard Cooper has developed national and global expertise, and it plans to extend its reach with the establishment of additional locations outside Alabama. A top priority is implementing a modern practice and financial management system that can help drive that growth.

"We need a unified, robust legal solution that will grow with us," commented Ray Bullock, Chief Operating Officer for Maynard Cooper. "Aderant stood out with its focus on the legal market and commitment to helping us efficiently manage our business. We were looking for a modern and flexible solution that's built for today as well as the future. We want to minimize use of third-party applications, and Aderant Expert's all-in-one integrated approach will do that. And the software's extensive matter management and business intelligence capabilities will enable us to intelligently and profitably drive growth."

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 intelligence. In addition to core Aderant Expert functionality, Maynard Cooper will extend the solution's capabilities by implementing MatterWorks™, ClearView business intelligence suite, Expert On the Go Time, Found Time, Expenses, Collections modules and more.

"We're thrilled that Maynard Cooper & Gale has chosen to partner with Aderant for its future legal software needs," said Aderant CEO Chris Giglio. "Aderant Expert's modular approach and built-in flexibility are ideal for Maynard Cooper's dynamic requirements as it adds new geographic locations. It now is one of more than 30 law firms worldwide to migrate away from Elite to Aderant Expert in recent years. We continue to gain momentum as the provider of choice for firms seeking a modern practice and financial management solution, as evidenced by record attendance at our recent Global Momentum and Momentum EMEA user conferences."
