McAngus Goudelock & Courie chooses legal software Aderant Expert to support recent exponential growth

ATLANTA, Sept. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aderant, the world’s largest independent legal software company, announced today that law firm McAngus Goudelock & Courie (MGC) has selected Aderant Expert as its new practice and financial management system. A leader in the insurance defense market, MGC chose to partner with Aderant due to the legal software company’s strong reputation for providing top quality customer support and focus on helping firms take a more metrics-centered approach to managing their firm.

Providing services for the niche insurance defense space, MGC has experienced exponential growth in recent years, likely due to the firm’s unique and innovative metrics-driven business model. Taking an “if you can measure it, you can improve it” approach, MGC not only collects critical firm, client and matter data, but effectively uses the information to more efficiently serve clients. As MGC began to grow, however, they were forced to push their former system beyond capacity. Concluding that the existing system would be unable to support their level of growth, the firm began reviewing solutions to assist with its transition to the large law segment. After an extensive three-year evaluation process, MGC determined that Aderant Expert was the best fit to meet their specific needs.

With Aderant Expert, MGC will be able to more easily manage general ledger mapping across multiple offices and streamline many firm processes with Aderant’s robust integration capabilities. Additionally, many manual activities will be simplified through Aderant Expert, such as split billing for multi-payor/multi-rate matters. The ability to scale the system to meet the firm’s changing needs as they continue to grow, however, will likely have the largest impact on the firm.

“Finding a long-term, sustainable solution was a top priority for us,” commented Jay Courie, Managing Member for MGC. “We decided to invest in Aderant Expert because it would be able to support our firm over the next 10+ years as we continue to grow. When we attended Aderant’s Momentum conference this year, we saw firsthand how Aderant works hand-in-hand with their clients to improve their solutions and address the changing needs of the industry, and we’ve heard nothing but great things about their client support.”

“We are pleased that MGC has decided to partner with Aderant moving forward,” commented Aderant CEO Chris Giglio. “By investing in a relationship with Aderant, MGC will not only benefit from a first-class legal software solution, but also help contribute to future Aderant products and help us to continue moving legal technology forward to better serve the industry.”
