9 August 2011


Personal injury specialist Snipelaw is celebrating 20 years of using practice management and legal accounts software from Legal Futures Associate .

The software has proven to be robust and reliable and has provided a significant return on investment.

Based in Blackpool, Snipelaw was founded in the 1970s when Ian Snipe took over an offshoot of a Manchester law firm to specialise exclusively in personal injury and some related road traffic accident claims. Today the firm employs around 25 people. As members of a successful solicitor marketing group, Snipelaw receives a good flow of interesting and often quite challenging work.

Commenting on the milestone, Mr Snipe said: “Since we went live in 1991, the SOS system has worked faultlessly and has never let us down. SOS has consistently provided excellent, personal service and has kept the software up-to-date. Even as a smaller client we feel that our business is appreciated and important to them.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS said: “We are delighted to have reached such a milestone anniversary with Snipelaw. It proves SOS has kept to the right philosophy about building long-term partnerships with clients and developing the SOS community. There is enormous value in a product that works well and without issue that lets a law firm focus on its core business activities and clients.

“As Ian has grown Snipelaw, he will have also witnessed the ongoing evolution of SOS; we share equal pride in this milestone and look forward to the future.”

McKenzie Friends – a storm in a teapot

If the recent furore about McKenzie Friend Marketplace shows anything, it is that the profession remains acutely sensitive to the apparent threat of competition by unregulated entrants into the legal landscape. But for an outside observer, the whole McKenzie Friend debate remains curiously overblown: if not a storm in a teacup, a storm at least in a teapot. For all the characteristic sturm und drang of the Law Society’s response to last year’s senior judiciary consultation, there was pretty widespread agreement among most respondents that McKenzie Friends are here to stay.
