A new strategic partnership has been forged between the Law Society of Scotland and legal technology company, Amiqus Resolution to develop and deliver software products to support law firms across Scotland.
Amiqus has been a Law Society of Scotland-approved supplier for two years, offering anti-money laundering and compliance checks with its award-winning Amiqus ID product. Amiqus ID helps law firms to securely collect, analyse and manage anti-money laundering and compliance information for staff and clients. The software currently serves high-profile clients across multiple regulated professions. Amiqus Resolution will collaborate further with the Law Society to provide insight, support, guidance and accessible solutions for Scottish solicitors as they undertake new ways of working.
Their next endeavour will be to support alternative dispute resolution (ADR), a development influenced by the International Council of Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) 2020 Conference in Edinburgh. Paul Mosson, executive director of member services and engagement at the Law Society of Scotland, said ‘this alliance with technology is part of our wider approach through LawscotTech to keeping Scottish law firms ahead of the curve.’ Callum Murray, ceo at Amiqus said ‘supporting innovation in Scotland as a jurisdiction is a high priority for us as we build a team and products that are able to compete globally. Working collaboratively, the Scottish legal sector has the opportunity to lead internationally, and we’re thrilled to be part of it.’
