Established in the 1850’s, Duncan Cotterill now has five offices and more than 35 partners and is a leading progressive Trans-Tasman commercial legal firm across New Zealand and Australia. The firm needed a next generation practice and management system to support its growth plans and provide the firm with the business foundation needed to track and monitor performance across multiple offices and geographies. The comprehensive capabilities, innovative technology, and strong market reputation for excellence were driving factors in the firm’s selection of Aderant Expert.
“Moving to a new practice management platform is a critical long-term decision for our firm as we position ourselves for the next phase of growth,” said Scott Moran, partner at Duncan Cotterill. “We have been using our current system for many years and embarked on a thorough selection process. Aderant’s excellent company and product reputation was a clear standout in all of our research, and we are confident that we made the best choice. We also believe that the new Expert Time Management and Matter Planning applications are two of the most innovation and strategic additions to the market, allowing us to gain even greater value from our investment.”
Chris Giglio, chief executive officer for Aderant commented, “We welcome a firm with the prestige and history of Duncan Cotterill to our expanding client base in the Asia Pacific region. By using the rich capabilities of Aderant Expert, they will be able to propel the success of the firm though increased efficiency, productivity, and overall financial performance.”
