Keystone’s Finance team is there to support our lawyers’ every financial need. The team performs a similar function to that of a conventional law firm, but they do it with systems and processes that make life much easier for Keystone lawyers and their clients. Keystone’s custom-built systems enable client set-up and conflict checks to be completed in a matter of minutes, while complex client invoices can be produced with ease.
When new Keystone lawyers join the firm, they are guided through the complete client lifecycle process, including how to set up a new client, record time and raise invoices. These steps are managed quickly and easily via our bespoke intranet, Keyed-In.
The Finance team operates a structured credit control process, designed to improve the speed of cash collection without affecting the lawyer/client relationship, but lawyers retain the utmost flexibility as to when, what and how to charge each client.
Ashley Miller heads up the Finance team. A PwC trained and qualified accountant, Ashley has spent his career establishing and managing international finance departments for SME businesses operating across the professional services sector, including leading law firms.
