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.”

How best to achieve independent regulation under the Legal Services Act?

Craig Wakeford LSB

Independent regulation gives confidence to consumers, providers, investors and society as a whole that legal services work in the public interest and support the rule of law. The Legal Services Act 2007 does not require all approved regulators to be structurally separate from representative bodies. Instead, the Legal Services Board is required by the Act to produce internal governance rules (IGR) which apply the principle of regulatory independence in legal service regulation. We are currently running a consultation on the IGR which continues until 9 February.
