Advantage Property Lawyers (APL) is announcing continued strong growth, against a backdrop of challenging economic conditions.

APL, a licensed conveyancing practice, was founded in 2009 with 15 staff and has since seen headcount grow by 200%.  At its inception, the firm implemented Eclipse‘s solution to provide a solid and scalable technology backbone.

Proclaim is utilised by all APL staff, providing a centralised desktop toolkit for all property transactions.  Proclaim also provides the practice’s core financial and reporting toolset, enabling instant data retrieval with ongoing monitoring and analysis.

The ethos at APL focuses firmly on service and the provision of a superb client experience.  Despite its youth, the firm has already picked up the ‘Best Small UK Conveyancer’ prize at the Estate Agency of the Year Awards, and regularly features in the Land Registry’s top 50 conveyancers by completion volume.

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
