Sixteen-partner Newcastle law firm Square One Law has selected Peppermint Technology as a cornerstone of the scale up and development of its business. Square One Law, which has had an average growth of over 35% a year for the previous four years, has completed a full data migration to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM cloud-based platform as well as implemented a new hosted desktop environment with MS Office and MS Exchange, including migration of all documents, email accounts and calendars.

Square One Law, now a full service commercial firm, in 2016 completed 22 corporate deals of over £500k, with a value of £290m. The firm has won Insider North East Corporate Law Firm of the Year for 2 out of the last 3 years and has won Law Firm of the Year at the Northern Law Awards for the past two years.

Senior partner, Ian Gilthorpe said: “We saw an opportunity in the legal marketplace in 2011 to launch a new law firm, that was more agile, better at communication and could attract talented and ambitious lawyers.

“This means we need to listen, be agile and our culture has developed so the whole team focusses on delivering outstanding service to the client, with the right tone of voice, every time.

“The Peppermint Technology software platform is ideally suited to our way of working and our entire team is already enthusiastically working with Peppermint, which is an innovative and intuitive product, and can see how its use will improve our service delivery further. In fact, after the training, the whole team could see great benefit in working with Peppermint and how it would support our differentiation from other legal firms.”
