Irwin Mitchell set for legal service transformation with Peppermint’s Microsoft cloud platform

20 April 2022: Nottingham, UK

Irwin Mitchell announces a revolutionary approach to client services powered by cloud-based software from Peppermint Technology.

Based in 15 UK locations, and with international reach as members of First Law International, Irwin Mitchell is recognised as one of the UK’s leading law firms. Irwin Mitchell is known for its unique coupling of experience and empathy, or as they put it, ‘the expert hand with human touch.’

Irwin Mitchell is focused on delivering growth across a range of sectors, through a strategy focussed on clients, communities, and colleagues. As such they recognised the need to invest in a modern digital platform to enhance their agility, productivity, and ability to innovate client focussed services.

Garry Dowdle, Chief Information Officer at Irwin Mitchell comments,

“We place innovative client service and client value at the centre of everything we do. Irwin Mitchell has ambitious growth plans and we’ve long recognised that technology would be a key enabler for this, delivering leading digital experiences for both colleagues and clients alike, leading to sustainable, profitable growth.

The new platforms are one of the core components of our technology strategy and will enable us to make our processes more efficient, support our teams to more easily collaborate around clients' needs and give us a greater insight into our relationships – allowing us to provide more value to our clients”

In selecting a digital platform to drive their strategy, Irwin Mitchell sought genuinely innovative technology, and a trusted partner to deliver a digital experience fit for now and the future.

Following a rigorous market review, Irwin Mitchell is partnering with Peppermint Technology to implement new Client Relationship Management, next-generation Case & Matter Management and Document Management solutions.

The solution will enhance Irwin Mitchell’s client relationships by empowering every lawyer with a 360-degree view of clients in one application. Clients will also benefit from the opportunity to use online portals that provide 24x7 access to services - accelerating the pace at which clients achieve the best possible outcomes for their matters or cases. Complete with Peppermint’s Document Management System built on Microsoft 365, the solution will enable Irwin Mitchell to meet more client needs and develop valuable, enduring relationships that will support the firm to achieve its growth plans.

On the decision to implement Peppermint, Dowdle states,

“Peppermint will empower us to stay one step ahead in realising our aspiration of delivering extraordinary experiences to our clients, communities, and colleagues. Peppermint is perfectly aligned with Irwin Mitchell’s agile work processes and wider strategic commitment to the Microsoft platform.

A mutual level of trust was important in our decision to partner with Peppermint. The Peppermint team was consistently adaptive to our requirements and understood the role of technology in our future state vision and growth strategy.”

Irwin Mitchell joins an increasing number of leading law firms looking to Peppermint Technology to drive forward digital transformation strategies, including DWF LLP, Kingsley Napley LLP, Foot Anstey LLP and Dickinson Wright PLLC.

On the partnership with Irwin Mitchell, Matt O’Callaghan, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Peppermint Technology states,

“We’re committed to ensuring our software will help Irwin Mitchell achieve their strategic goals and growth ambitions. This is an exciting time for Irwin Mitchell, and Peppermint is ideally placed to help the firm fully realise their broader investments in the Microsoft 365 platform today and into the future. We’re thrilled that our software platform will be at the heart of their unique offering.”

A phased roll-out will now take place of the Client Engagement application, Case and Matter Management and Document Management applications.
