Hutchinson Law has opted for the Virtual Practices (VP) hosted legal software and outsourced cashiering service.

Andrew Hutchinson set up Hutchinson Law at the turn of the year after nearly 30 years practising in the City of London where he had been a partner at Dechert LLP and its legacy firm since 1990.

Hutchinson Law operates collaboratively to the extent that Andrew requires capacity or skill sets that he is unable to offer personally to the firm’s clients.

“Hutchinson Law could not have existed, say, ten years ago” says Andrew.

“I have invested heavily in technology and my collaborative approach extends to my various technology ‘partners’. Virtual Practices is a key supplier. I rely heavily on its practice management system and achieve tremendous savings in time by using its outsourced cashiering service.

“These products enable me to concentrate on giving advice to clients, from a platform which facilitates professional compliance and efficiency.”

Natalie Jennings, who heads up Virtual Practices, which is a division of legal software supplier , said: “Start-up and spin-off law firms such as Hutchinson Law require a high degree of agility and flexibility, and Virtual Practices can provide this.

“VP offers a product which lends itself to the requirements of law firms of every size. It can be rolled out for new start-ups or to replace aging systems within existing firms. The pricing is competitive and can be tailored to the customer’s specific requirements.”

Tech is famous for its shorter and shorter hype cycles. Robot lawyers were all over the twitters only a few months ago and now people actually yell at you for even mentioning the thing. Of course, robot lawyers should not even have surfaced in the first place because no one is remotely close to building them. Lawyers should not fear for their livelihoods. But there is something that is much more important than robot lawyers. It’s robot clients. Or at least the proliferation of machines, automated transactions, and standardized processes where lawyers once controlled the terrain.
