Baker Donelson Creates Fully Personalized Practice Management Portal: BakerNetAderant
Baker Donelson, a firm with more than 750 attorneys across 23 offices, needed a fully personalized practice management portal that would provide its attorneys with one main place to work a matter. This system needed to provide lawyers with seamless access to all case and client documents, a view of daily tasks and events at-a-glance, the ability to search all firm and third-party information, and a better way to communicate with colleagues. A knowledge management solution of this magnitude seemed out of reach, as they are often designed with smaller firms in mind, and not flexible for a large multi-practice firm with multiple authoritative systems. The firm also needed an agile system optimized for mobility that they could customize to meet their wide-ranging requirements. Baker Donelson chose the functionality and scope of Aderant Handshake, and in partnership with Fireman & Company, created BakerNet.
