Inksters launch Plug & Play Law
Inksters Solicitors have launched Plug & Play Law in a drive to build on and enhance their business expansion in Scotland.
Plug & Play is a term for law firms coined by Mitch Kowalski in his book ‘The Great Legal Reformation: Notes from the Field’ that features Inksters. Mitch Kowalski refers to Plug & Play Platforms when describing law firms such as Inksters who have developed a model where senior lawyers can work as a collective, with enhanced technology and back-office support. Where a hub-and-spoke model exists with a back office “hub” (Inksters have that in their Glasgow HQ) and “spokes” elsewhere (Inksters’ spokes are currently in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Forfar, Inverness, Lerwick, Portree, Thurso and Wick).
Inksters have been quietly building this model over the past few years. In just over the past year alone they added spokes in Aberdeen with Rory Cradock joining, Edinburgh when Steven McDonald joined the firm and Thurso with the addition of Charlotte Platt. The most recent senior lawyer to join Inksters was David Flint when he moved over from MacRoberts in May.
Brian Inkster, founder and CEO of Inksters, said: “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.”
