Specialist London-based corporate law firm Grant Dawe LLP has signed up to the Virtual Practices (VP) hosted legal software and outsourced cashiering service.

Set up in 2006, Grant Dawe’s lawyers focus primarily on complex corporate work, advising on mergers and acquisitions, equity and debt financing, investment transactions and shareholder relationships.

Partner Max Gower says: “Our existing systems were not properly integrated and had become archaic.

“We realised that investing just a relatively small amount of money in our IT could yield significant benefits, and most importantly, allow our lawyers to focus more on the delivery of services to clients and less on administrative tasks.

“Corporate law is what we are good at, and we did not want to be spending our time carrying out administrative tasks when we could outsource them at low cost.

“We looked at a number of different software providers and VP came out comfortably on top. The software appeared very polished and the people we worked with were professional and committed.

“When we understood all that the Virtual Practices solution had to offer we were happy to sign up to the whole package – document management, accounts and legal cashiering.  For a small specialist firm such as ours, VP ticks all the boxes.”

Natalie Jennings, who heads up Virtual Practices, which is a division of legal software supplier , said: “Grant Dawe’s business model demands a high degree of agility and flexibility, and Virtual Practices can provide this.

“Being free of the burden of purchasing and running software in-house means that law firms such as Grant Dawe can get on with the ‘day job’ of running and developing their practice.”

How to make a case to the unconverted

Jonathan Whittle

The prospect of change is a daunting one, whether you’re a global firm or a small one. You might think that your firm’s working practices are fine, or that there’s no value in altering the way you do things because of the disruption it would cause. You might even see the benefits of using a different methodology, but still refuse to put the effort in to implement it – and you wouldn’t be alone. From our research in the 2016 report, The Riddle of Perception, we know that 73% of lawyers believe that adapting to change is not where their strength lies. However, it’s no longer optional.
