10 November 2003

Brookers and juniorPartner Team Up

Brookers Ltd today announced that they are now working with jPartner Systems Ltd and will be distributing and supporting the juniorPartner (jP) law practice management software from November 2003.

¡§We are very pleased to be working with jPartner Systems Ltd and excited about the opportunities this presents. This development is designed to build on our success with other technology that we have developed for New Zealand law firms including Notes, Knowledge Integration Solutions for Extranets and Intranets, and Firmsite. Notes is an online first in New Zealand and provides our customers with the ability to add comments to their online products and link them to their own internal resources or files. jP was a natural choice as we share similar values - flexibility, continuous innovation for the customer¡¦s sake, and an absolute commitment to our customers by providing them with the best training, technical support and service. This will enable us to provide New Zealand law firms with a compelling and highly competitive combination of unmatched depth and breadth of legal information and a flexible, user-friendly law practice management system,¡¨ said Neil Story, Managing Director of Brookers Ltd.

jP is a respected and highly competitive integrated practice management system for small-to-medium sized law practices. It was designed by New Zealand lawyers for New Zealand lawyers and provides lawyers with the ability to:
„h track time and costs;
„h manage all of their accounting functions including trust accounts;
„h maintain their client lists; and
„h market their services.

Graeme Ramsay, Managing Director of jPartner Systems Ltd, said today ¡§I am delighted to be working with the Brookers team. Our commitment to serving the exacting and changing needs of the legal profession has created a long and proud tradition of client-focused software innovation. Brookers shares these goals and traditions which is why we chose the Brookers team to be our preferred business partner. Already we have some exciting software developments in the pipeline. I look forward to the further growth of juniorPartner and the opportunity to introduce jP to a wider range of law firms.¡¨

Links to Brookers and DSL Publishing CD and online information, including Brookers Law Directory, will be available within jP in the New Year. Brookers customers will be able to include any of the five modules currently available as part of the jP practice management software in their existing information supply agreement. Customers who do not currently have an information supply agreement with Brookers can find out more by contacting their local Brookers Account Manager or Brookers Customer Care team on or 0800 10 60 60.
