Petyt: exciting vision

Costs lawyer Colin Key and costs draftsman Carl Bird have joined the main London office of Kain Knight, one the UK’s largest firms of costs lawyers.

Colin joins from Just Costs Solicitors and Carl from Meruit Costs. Their work will focus mainly on high-value commercial litigation, multi-track clinical negligence and personal injury. They are two of a number of new Kain Knight appointments in recent months.

Kain Knight continues to recruit at all levels as part of a business expansion strategy through organic and acquisitive growth.

Peter Petyt, Kain Knight’s chief executive officer, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Colin Key and Carl Bird to our growing London operation. It is testament to the exciting vision and culture developing at Kain Knight that we are receiving so many expressions of interest to work with us.

“The Kain Knight group continues to develop a wide range of services to complement our leading position in the legal costs industry.”

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
