Inksters Solicitors have launched Plug & Play Law to support their business expansion in Scotland.
Under the scheme, senior lawyers in different locations can work as a collective, with enhanced technology and back-office support. It will operate as a hub-and-spoke model, with a back office hub in Inksters' Glasgow headquarters and "spokes" elsewhere – currently in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Forfar, Inverness, Lerwick, Portree, Thurso and Wick.
Plug & Play is a term for law firms coined by Mitch Kowalski in his book The Great Legal Reformation: Notes from the Field, which features Inksters. The firm has been building the model over the past few years, with lawyers in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Thurso joining in the past year or so alone.
Brian Inkster, founder and CEO of Inksters, commented: "We now have the infrastructure in place, the technology embedded and a tried and tested model that works well in a very different way from the traditional partnership model. The time is therefore right to publicly launch it and invite solicitors looking for a change to talk to me about practising law in a forward thinking way. Plug & Play Law gives solicitors more of the fees they generate; complete freedom of how, where and when they work; and allows them to focus on doing the legal work that they love to do."
The firm has set up a dedicated Plug & Play Law website: www.plugplaylaw.com
