In under a year, Clio has doubled the number of UK firms using its software, adding almost 200 firms in the past 12 months, joining over 16,000 firms in 67 countries. To facilitate this growth, the European office, based in Dublin, will be looking to double their current team over the coming months.

In the UK this year, the Clio team has:

  • Added almost 200 new law firms
  • Provided training for over 500 new users
  • Welcomed three societies into their partnership program namely, The Law Society of Scotland, Leeds Law Society, and the Institute of Legal Finance Management
  • Provided Clio for free to student-run legal clinics in 17 universities

“The feedback we’ve been receiving from our customers, particularly about Clio’s user-friendliness, its raft of features, and ability to integrate with over 50 leading software providers has been phenomenal. We’re delighted to be making a significant contribution to Clio’s international expansion,” added Derek Fitzpatrick, general manager for EMEA, Clio.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
