Quill releases legal technology guide to help smart law firms adapt to the challenging demands of 2021


With 74% of senior UK partners looking to invest more in technology, and with 2020 having presented one of the biggest technological infrastructure challenges in living memory, Quill has published a new eBook to help practice managers invest in the technologies which will bring the most benefits to their law firms.

Quill’s guide to the essential smart law firm technology you need in 2021 is a one-stop-shop for identifying which technologies you need to ensure your law practice is running as smoothly and efficiently as possible, as well as how to make hybrid working a success and the benefits of going paperless.

Adding their words of wisdom to the guide are Andrew Guile (Partner at GN Law) and Johdi Hutchins (Partner/Practice Manager at Galloway Hughes). With over 60 employees and 4 offices between them, they know more than most what it truly takes to call yourself a smart law firm.

As the world slowly returns to the new-normal, the long-term impacts of COVID-19 will force law firms to adapt. Although 97% of employees don’t want to return to the office full-time, 20% of employees say their equipment is unprepared to work from home and 1,740 UK businesses fell victim to cyber scams between March 2020 and September 2020 – largely as a result of security issues associated with remote working.

To enable their employees to continue working to the best of their ability, practice managers will have to bring improvements to every corner of their law firms. And as Quill’s guide makes clear, innovative technology, integrated from the ground up and involving every team member across every area of their practice, is the smartest way to achieve exactly that.

Quill Managing Director Julian Bryan says:

“The difference between a law firm and a smart law firm is that smart law firms are able to make their lives much, much easier simply by investing in and using the technology which is right for them.

“Our eBook is a testament to what Quill has known for over 40 years – that innovative technology is a law firm’s best friend. With insights from industry experts, facts and figures around hybrid working, cybersecurity tips and a step-by-step guide to going paperless, we’re giving law firms everything they need to push their technological development further than ever before.”

Quill’s guide is perfect for any law firm (new or old) which is looking to expand its horizons and discover easier, more cost-efficient ways of managing matters. Those law firms which have already invested in smart technology will also learn new modes and methods of making themselves even smarter.
