PrintOchresoft continues to consolidate its position as the UK’s leading conveyancing workflow provider with the signing of Hek Jones. The Cardiff-based property specialist is set to deploy the Intelliworks platform to support its busy residential conveyancing team.

For managing partner Darren Hek the project is more than just ticking the compliance, standards and productivity boxes: “We know that Intelliworks will ease the administrative burden, help us manage risk and underpin consistent working; but for us specifically, it also offers the opportunity to reengineer our team so that we can develop our assistants more quickly, have them supporting our fee earners more effectively and improve overall capacity and throughput, without sacrificing either the quality of our work or our standards of customer care. It will allow us to grow our volumes significantly with just an anticipated small incremental rise in headcount, all the time providing a very user-friendly, up-to-date control framework for all elements of the conveyancing process.”

Ochresoft’s Pauline Freegard comments: “Intelliworks has established itself as the leading workflow tool by transaction volume for the conveyancing profession, and increasingly we are seeing it as a central pillar in firms’ efforts to position themselves for the future. Its compliance and productivity benefits are well established but firms are also looking to it to help them structure their teams and fine-tune different levels of skilled resource to create highly proficient, profitable departments.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
