Gunnercooke was established in 2010 and now boasts 60 partners, two office hubs in London and Manchester, and a client base of over 1,000. To deliver the best service to its clients, it was vital that Gunnercooke's partners were set up to work from wherever the clients needed them. For its IT suppliers, this presented an interesting challenge. Sarah Goulbourne explains why the new-model firm chose Quill's hosted Interactive practice management and legal accounts system.
Lesley Haresnape at leading national provider of business advisory services, DTE Business Advisers, explains how the firm performs accounting from the cloud on behalf of its legal practice clients by using hosted systems such as Quill's Interactive practice management and legal accounts software.

When she decided to go it alone, Josie Robinson changed from independent consultant solicitor to sole practitioner of a niche specialist medical negligence and sports injury claims practice. It was during the lengthy SRA application process that Josie realised the impossibility of handling all business functions and managing her firm’s IT infrastructure as well as being the solitary fee earner. That's why she chose Quill's outsourced support.
Setting up a new legal practice is a demanding, time-consuming, stressful process. Outsourcing key business functions is a way of alleviating the pressure at these early stages of formation. Pam Smith, a Director at Parklands Property Lawyers, explains why their start-up business chose the "sensible" option of outsourced legal cashiering support and, nine years onwards, remain loyal clients of the Pinpoint service.
