BakerNet: Aderant handshake
Baker Donelson is one of the 60 largest law firms in the United States with 750 fee earners and public policy advisors in more than 30 practice area across 23 offices. While having done work in 90 countries spanning six continents, Baker Donelson is frequently recognised by FORTUNE magazine as one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For.”
The firm needed a fully personalised practice management portal that would provide its fee earners with one main place to work a matter. This system needed to provide fee earners:
• Seamless access to all case and client documents
• A view of daily tasks and events at a glance
• The ability to search all firm and 3rd party information
• A better way to communicate with colleagues
A knowledge management solution of this magnitude seemed out of reach, as they are often designed with smaller firms in mind and not flexible for a large multi-practice firm with multiple authoritative systems. Baker Donelson needed an agile system optimised for mobility that they could customise to meet the wide-ranging requirements of their firm.
