Leading Nordic law firm powers critical business processes with Deltek Maconomy

Plesner is well-known for its competencies in strategic legal advisory services, large-scale transactions and complex dispute resolution. As the firm grew, the volume and complexity of matters handled across clients and geographies was steadily increasing, which prompted a review of its Practice Management System.

The company selected Deltek Maconomy as it provides the depth of functionality and project centricity to manage its business needs. With Deltek, Plesner now has improved transparency and control across the firm, greater accessibility to critical business information for its employees, and enhanced the financial management of all matter stages and transactions.

Leading African law firm chooses Deltek Maconomy for its pan-African practice to improve matter management, staff utilisation and client interaction.

 

Nairobi, Kenya – 26 August, 2015 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for project-based businesses, today announced that Kenyan law firm Anjarwalla & Khanna (A&K) has chosen Deltek Maconomy to improve matter management, staff utilisation and client interaction.

A&K also founded and is a member of ALN, a leading alliance of top-tier independent law firms across Africa.

Given A&K’s rapid growth and its work across countries and practices, the firm recognized the need to consolidate business operations onto a single ERP platform, allowing for system unification, data transparency, enhanced matter management and conversion of manual processes like billing to digital, with the goal of ultimately increasing efficiency.

“We were looking for a solution that would give us a competitive edge, improve efficiency in our business processes and also differentiate us from the way we deliver services. As we evaluated our options, it became clear that Deltek’s solution offered the leading end-to-end practice management solution, including advanced reporting, mobility and modern technology plus multi-dimensional accounts that cater to our multiple offices, partners and practice areas,” said Shital Shah, Chief Operating Officer at A&K. “We also were pleased with the option to leverage Deltek’s local partner, Silversoft, for implementation and support. We look forward to working with both companies and joining the global list of successful professional firms that rely on Deltek to power their businesses.”

“As today’s professional services firms such as A&K continue to experience global growth, we see an increased demand for an integrated ERP solution that creates unified processes across clients, matters, partners and regions. A&K shared that vision, and we are thrilled that it selected Deltek to manage its global practice to power its growth,” said Claus Thorsgaard, EVP & General Manager of Enterprise, International & Channel Sales at Deltek. “We look forward to partnering with Silversoft and A&K as it begins its implementation process and goes live on Deltek Maconomy in the coming months.”
