A Look Back at 2019

Where has the year gone?

With Christmas rapidly approaching and the New Year just around the corner, we can say 2019 has been an incredible year with many success stories and challenges faced along the way. As a company, we are extremely proud of the technology we deliver to the legal profession and take immense pride in the relationships we build with our customers and other legal technology suppliers. All year it’s been full steam ahead, and we are thrilled to announce another year of business success and an ever-growing customer base.

Let’s reflect on our greatest achievements this year…

Integration with LEX
We brought to market an exciting and whole new perspective on chambers-barrister processes by working together with Bar Squared in a unique collaboration inspired to help chambers deliver efficient paperless working. The cutting-edge integration combines intelligent case review and presentation with LEX Chambers Management software, the market-leading chambers solution. Together, we believe in providing a better future for chambers and believe this integration is a real game-changer, providing a huge competitive advantage for progressive chambers. The Law is now an App in the Barrister Magazine provides excellent insight on the integration, and why its the way forward.

Growing Business and Customer Base
The heartbeat to any business are its employees and customers.

We were extremely pleased to welcome on board Tom Kirkland, our new Dev Ops Manager. Tom is based at our Head Office in Stafford and is mainly responsible for building, deploying and maintaining our class-leading case preparation and presentation software. His technical knowledge, team-based approach and capability to deliver leading-edge solutions for our customers is paramount to our business moving forward, especially as we continue to bolster our technical resource throughout the New Year.

From January 2019, we rapidly grew our customer base by over 400% and worked with some of the most prestigious barristers and law firms in the country. We now offer case presentation solutions from initial instructions, through to presentation in court and everything in between. 2019 saw us cement our leading position in the barristers marketplace, and 2020 will see us deliver the same growth and results in the wider solicitors marketplace.

Looking Forward to 2020
We would like to say a massive thank you to all of our customers, partners and suppliers who have worked with us throughout 2019 and we hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and prosperous New Year!
