The Access Group, one of the UK’s leading software providers has officially launched its new legal software division, Access Legal, promising to help the UK’s most ambitious law firms achieve their potential through a powerful suite of technology.
The launch follows the acquisitions of case and practice management providers Eclipse Legal Systems and DPS Software in 2020, as well as The Access Group’s previous acquisitions of legal online training, compliance and risk management solution providers Riliance and Socrates. Combined, this means Access Legal has an initial customer base of 3,500 legal practices.
Already working alongside a third of the UK legal market and supporting firms of all sizes and specialisms, Access Legal is providing software to renowned firms such as Eversheds, Winn Solicitors, Wolferstans, Minster Law, Neves Solicitors LLP and The MAPD Group.
Access Legal’s solutions have been designed to go beyond just helping fee earners with essential legal case and practice management and accounts requirements to now support every aspect of a firm’s operations – including legal compliance and learning and relevant existing Access software, such as people management, financial solutions, payments technology and CRM.
The launch of Access Legal comes at a time when many law professionals are still working from home and partners are weighing up the viability of more flexible working patterns when offices reopen.
To mark its launch, Access Legal has unveiled the first of a regular new series of free legal guides, Legal Unlimited. The first edition, Legal Unlimited: Unlocking Your People Power is now available online, explores the transformative power of a technology-led people strategy and draws on expert opinion from the legal, HR and tech worlds with practical steps to help firms achieve commercial success.
