Advantage Consulting and Clio have formed a strategic partnership in the UK. As part of the deal, Advantage Consulting will offer Clio's legal software solutions as a premium case management solution to its clients, including the Advantage 365 platform and the Advantage Legal Network member firms.
Advantage Consulting is a leading provider of business consultancy services to law firms in the UK, with over 500 clients across its technology, consulting and insurance divisions. This unique legal sector expertise and knowledge of the legal marketplace will be available to Clio's customers worldwide.
“Through this partnership, Advantage Consulting and Clio will help law firms accelerate growth and find new ways to drive innovation in the legal sector in the UK using Clio's innovative product suite,” says Clio's EMEA Manager Colin Bohanna.
“Advantage Consulting, with its recognised expertise in the legal sector, is now a strategic partner for Clio in the UK, and together we will help solicitors across the British Isles address their most critical practice management and remote working challenges.”
Clio and Advantage Consulting are now working together to ensure that Clio's solutions can be successfully accessed by Advantage 365 and AdNet member law firms.
“Both companies have a shared vision of helping law firms accelerate their digital transformation. We both understand that legal technology is here to stay, and it is essential for law firms, especially during the COVID-19 crisis, to provide uninterrupted client service while shifting their operations to a remote office environment,” says Rudi Kesic, Chief Executive at Advantage Consulting.
“Partnering with Clio gives our clients a quick and simple path to buying one of the best cloud-based legal practice management solutions in the world which can simplify time recording, billing, document management, as well as streamline inefficient and costly processes, making it easy to tackle administrative tasks and increase law firm's profitability. More than ever, lawyers realise that technology is a powerful differentiator in building a better normal going forward and lawyers who had hesitated to adopt technology in the past are suddenly forced to rapidly adapt to this new reality,” added Rudi Kesic.
The technological transformation of the legal industry that was expected to take place over the next five to ten years is now being compressed into weeks and months due to the pandemic.
“The goal here is to give Advantage Consulting's clients access to one of the best practice management software platforms in the world,” said Mev Dzihic, Technology Director at Advantage Consulting.
“Web-based, secure and easy-to-use, Clio will be the perfect match for the Advantage client-base, providing them with all the tools they need to manage their law firms efficiently and effectively,” added Mev Dzihic.
Supported with joint co-selling and go-to-market activities, Clio's products and solutions will begin rolling out to Advantage Consulting clients in March 2021.
