Quill

Quill helps law firms streamline and run law practices better by providing simple and easy-to-use practice management and legal accounts software, as well as outsourced legal cashiering, digital post room, payroll and typing services.

As a leading supplier of legal accounts software and outsourced cashiering services in the UK to independent solicitors, multi-disciplinary law firms and alternate business structures of all specialisms, Quill is the first choice for many start-ups, and small to medium sized law firms.

Quill is proud to be the first outsourced legal cashiering service and legal accounts, case, document and practice management software provider to be recommended by the Law Society.

This unique combination of cutting-edge software and legal accounting expertise means that Quill helps legal professionals with their SRA Accounts Rules, data protection, money laundering and other regulatory compliance obligations.

Cloud-hosted legal accounts, practice and document management software

Quill’s legal software delivers all you would expect of a market-leading legal accounting and practice management system for the smart law firm. Conflict, money laundering and credit checking is available during new client set-up while postcode look-up facilitates a clean and tidy database. Powerful time recording tools make it easy for fee earners to log chargeable activity, with flexible rate features to accommodate most charging policies.

With a strong focus on financial compliance, Quill allows users to see both client and office ledger balances simultaneously. A unique e-chit facility connects fee earners to their cashiering team, instructing them to prepare monetary transfers, post bills, pay disbursements and carry out other ledger transactions via daily e-chits. Authorisation levels can also be appointed for greater financial management control.

Quill’s software comes with a comprehensive document management system, allocating relevant documentation to each matter in a categorised filing structure. Integration with Word and Outlook is an option, thereby capturing email dialogue and correspondence automatically with appropriate time recordings.

For firms with specialist case management systems, Quill provides a unique API allowing integration with Interactive from their chosen system, giving clients the flexibility to choose dual suppliers for a best-of-breed solution.

Outsourced legal cashiering service

For businesses which prefer the outsourcing route, Quill’s Pinpoint bureau is the UK’s largest outsourced legal cashiering service, and employs a team of qualified legal cashiers to manage clients’ accounts in compliance with defined rules, regulations and legislation, posting in excess of 2 million accounting transactions per annum.

All Quill legal cashiers are active members of the Institute of Legal Finance and Management (ILFM), the professional body for those working in legal finance and legal practice management, including compliance officers for finance and administration (COFAs).

Outsourced legal cashiering provides a no-holiday, never-sick model with an allocated and dedicated named cashier for each client, backed up by a deputy for cover and supervised within groups of six staff.

The outsourced legal cashiering service enables law firms to hand over their accounting functions to a dedicated 50-strong team of experienced legal cashiers who will compile and maintain accounts, generate reports and prepare all statutory documentation in accordance with the stringent demands of the SRA Accounts Rules. It’s the first outsourced service recommended by the Law Society of England and Wales. Learn more here.
