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.”

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.
