Will Services Scotland has opted for Virtual Practices (VP) hosted legal software after a period of strong growth.

Set up by managing director Franco Lazzeri in 2008, the Glasgow-based firm offers a will writing and estate planning service throughout Scotland.

Now it has signed up for Virtual Practices for document management in order to help manage its fast-growing client base.

“We were reaching the point in the business where our client database was getting too big for our system to cope with,” says Franco.

“I spoke to a few people who recommended Virtual Practices and had an online demonstration of its capabilities. I wanted new software for document and matter management, and VP was ideal. Paying by monthly subscription suited us and the team at VP was also able to tailor one or two other things to suit our needs.

“Overall the help and support we have received from them has been great – they really have gone the extra mile.”

Natalie Jennings, who heads up Virtual Practices, which is a division of legal software supplier , said: “VP is adaptable enough for clients to be able to choose and tailor individual packages to suit their requirements, and this has been the case with Wills Services Scotland.

“More and more firms like Franco’s are turning to VP as part of an agile, low overhead business model.”

The importance of being expert

I recently sat on a panel debate in Manchester, with the debate entitled – ATE insurers and sub-£250k claims. Whilst the title of the debate was probably written ahead of the government’s consultation paper to introducing fixed recoverable costs in lower-value clinical negligence claims, where £25,000 rather than £250,000 is being recommended, it nevertheless raised an interesting point on how after-the-event insurers can make premiums proportionate to damages, especially for cases worth less than £25,000.
