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.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
