Specialist law firm Verdant Legal has opted for the Virtual Practices (VP) hosted legal software and outsourced cashiering service just months after its launch.
Verdant Legal was set up earlier this year by managing director Chris King and is based in Stoke-on-Trent. Chris, who was formerly with a large Manchester law firm, specialises in advising clients in the energy efficiency sector, primarily giving corporate, commercial and construction law advice.
“We looked at quite a few other outsourced solutions but nothing else offered all the advantages of connectivity to Outlook and the all-round flexibility of Virtual Practices,” says Chris.
“As well as integration into Outlook, the legal cashier service is particularly invaluable because trying to manage that side of the business would be well nigh impossible for a firm of our size.
“Thanks to VP we now have a very streamlined filing and management system which means that when we look to bring any new consultants on board as the firm grows, their workflows can easily be integrated.”
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 Verdant Legal require a high degree of agility and flexibility, and Virtual Practices can provide this.
“Freed of the burden of having to purchase and run software in-house, management can get on with the ‘day job’ of developing their practice.”
