Foot Anstey realises the benefits of performance measurement software that drives pricing, profit and productivity with BigHand Quantum and BigHand Evaluate


Foot Anstey is one of the UK's top 100 law firms, with over 50 partners and 500 staff. Additionally, it is one of the largest firms outside London. In existence for over 100 years, is firmly rooted in the South West of England, with offices in Bristol, Exeter, Taunton and Southampton.

The law firm prides itself on offering high quality services at a fraction of the cost of London-based firms. However, the firm has faced pressures in the area of fee management, specifically with

  • Fees becoming even greater, and
  • Growing numbers of clients pushing for a fixed fee model.

Therefore, it’s now imperative that all fee earners at Foot Anstey have access to accurate, real-time figures measuring performance, efficiency and financial insight. Having assessed the market in search of software that enables more informed, intelligent decision making, Foot Anstey turned to BigHand for assistance by employing:

  • BigHand Quantum, and its Financial Data Warehouse, not only for the intuitive user experience and self-service information access it provides but also the company’s deep understanding and experience of the legal marketplace;
