Hutchinson Law has opted for the Virtual Practices (VP) hosted legal software and outsourced cashiering service.

Andrew Hutchinson set up Hutchinson Law at the turn of the year after nearly 30 years practising in the City of London where he had been a partner at Dechert LLP and its legacy firm since 1990.

Hutchinson Law operates collaboratively to the extent that Andrew requires capacity or skill sets that he is unable to offer personally to the firm’s clients.

“Hutchinson Law could not have existed, say, ten years ago” says Andrew.

“I have invested heavily in technology and my collaborative approach extends to my various technology ‘partners’. Virtual Practices is a key supplier. I rely heavily on its practice management system and achieve tremendous savings in time by using its outsourced cashiering service.

“These products enable me to concentrate on giving advice to clients, from a platform which facilitates professional compliance and efficiency.”

Natalie Jennings, who heads up Virtual Practices, which is a division of legal software supplier , said: “Start-up and spin-off law firms such as Hutchinson Law require a high degree of agility and flexibility, and Virtual Practices can provide this.

“VP offers a product which lends itself to the requirements of law firms of every size. It can be rolled out for new start-ups or to replace aging systems within existing firms. The pricing is competitive and can be tailored to the customer’s specific requirements.”

Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
