Quain: Employing PeppDirect means we can focus on what we do best

London employment specialist GQ Employment Law LLP has selected PeppDirect legal software, from technology innovator Peppermint Technology, to support its award winning business.

Named as a top three ‘boutique firm of the year – City’ in the Lawyer Awards last year, GQ Employment focuses on resolving complex and high-value employment, LLP and partnership issues and disputes. The firm provides a dynamic and highly personalised service equivalent to that of the ‘Big Law’ firms, which heavily influenced their requirement for CRM centric technology tailored for the legal market.

GQ Employment has no internal IT resource and so opted for PeppDirect – the preconfigured version of the Peppermint Platform. Designed and built on the award winning Microsoft Dynamics and SharePoint platform, PeppDirect provides out of the box legal software to manage a law firm’s customers, matters, documents and accounts.

Paul Quain, partner at GQ Employment, said:

“We’re not an IT business, we are a specialist employment firm – and good at it. We prefer to leave the tech to the experts, which is why we turned to Peppermint. Our over-riding focus is to provide practical, user-friendly solutions to our clients. Employing PeppDirect means we can focus on what we do best, confident that we are backed by the best technology available.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

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.
