Bringing the Best of Aderant CompuLaw and American Legal Net (ALN) Together, Milana is Positioned to Drive Continuous Innovation in the Docketing Space

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Atlanta–Today, Aderant announces the launch of Milana, a revolutionary new cloud docketing solution which combines the best of CompuLaw, including its industry-leading court rules, with the rich feature set of American LegalNet (ALN) solutions to create a best-of-both-worlds cloud product. Milana, which means “mix” or “bring together” in Hindi, is the culmination of 10 months of development since Aderant acquired ALN in January 2022. Milana introduces a new standard of litigation docketing, offering an easy-to-use cloud-based solution that will continue to lead the market and drive innovation with the ongoing rollout of new features and functionality immediately available to end-users.

“Milana represents the future of docketing, and the future is here,” remarked Chris Cartrett, President and CEO of Aderant. “Law firms must guard against reputational and malpractice risk and docketing can be a major source of both. To better address the needs of our clients and the industry, we are bringing together CompuLaw’s market-leading court rules and the cloud benefits firms have come to expect with ALN into a new product that far exceeds anything available for firms today. Milana is the new standard in docketing, built on the rules the industry trusts with a defined path of innovation ahead.”

“The Docketing team at Aderant is incredibly excited to launch Milana, the next generation of docketing technology,” commented Dan Biegel, VP of Product Management for Docketing at Aderant. “With such tremendous support and investment from Aderant, we’re bringing powerful new capabilities to docketers and streamlining the flow of information for attorneys and staff, all while addressing the emerging technology requirements of firm IT stakeholders.”

Milana combines the best of both CompuLaw and ALN. Feature highlights include:

  • Trusted, market-leading CompuLaw court rules with matter-level exclusions
  • Auto Docket Pro (ECF Reconciliation & Distribution)
  • Advanced DMS integration (iManage & NetDocuments) and Forms Workflow Integration
  • Docket Direct (Court Data Feeds)
  • Variety of settings, wizards, workflows and self-service tools to enhance user experience

Aderant will be demonstrating Milana at the National Docketing Association (NDA) Annual Conference on October 16-18 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. To schedule a demo at the conference or an online demo anytime, email or visit

Aderant has grown substantially in 2022, having first acquired ALN and then people management software provider viGlobal in August. Cartrett has acknowledged a “seismic shift” to the cloud among law firms in recent years, with many law firms migrating to Expert Sierra, Aderant’s cloud-based SaaS legal practice management solution. Aderant continues to drive process automation within firms by way of its suite of cloud products including compliance with Outside Counsel Guidelines (OCGs) via Aderant BillBlast for eBilling, the fastest growing legal tech application on the market.
