Phil Snee, development director at Linetime, commented. “The plot sales element of the Liberate system is proving very popular with a number of high calibre law firms and we are delighted to welcome Gillespie Macandrew into the fold. Linetime prides itself on the continuous development of both products and customer relationships and this endorsement serves to reinforce that policy.”
