Case Study: Lexis Visualfiles - South London Legal Partnership
The South London Legal Partnership (SLLP) is a shared legal service organisation of the boroughs of Merton, Kingston, Sutton and Richmond. Hosted by Merton Council, the SLLP offers the four London boroughs access to a strong pool of lawyers and professional expertise to help the Councils deliver an efficient and cost-effective legal service. The SLLP was originally set up in 2011 between Merton and Richmond and subsequently expanded to include Kingston and Sutton boroughs.
Did Merton Council evaluate other case management systems at the time of expanding the SLLP?
Paul Phelan: The legal services department at Merton has been using LexisNexis’ legacy solution for well over seven years, so we had a good idea of the capabilities of the company and its technology. However, when the SLLP initiative was launched to include all the four boroughs, to ensure that we indeed had the right system, we explored other case management systems.
