Petyt: Alliance ‘will deepen our clients’ awareness of both firms’ services in the marketplace’

Kain Knight, one of the UK’s largest firms of costs lawyers, and DMJ Recruitment, a leading supplier of human resources to the legal and company secretarial sectors, have formed a strategic alliance to promote each other’s services via a series of joint initiatives including co-branded seminars and online and offline marketing activities.

Kain Knight deals with the widest spectrum of legal costs from small criminal and family matters to high value, high profile complex commercial cases. DMJ Recruitment provides highly motivated and skilled individuals specialising in five key recruitment areas; legal private practice, in-house legal, legal support, legal mergers and company secretarial.

Peter Petyt, chief executive officer of Kain Knight, said: “DMJ Recruitment is widely recognised by the legal profession as the best place to find highly skilled professionals in the industry.

“Many of our law firm clients and contacts are also clients and contacts of DMJ Recruitment and we have therefore formed a strategic alliance to work on joint initiatives which will deepen our clients’ awareness of both firms’ services in the marketplace.”

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.
