Amiqus Law Society of Scotland

The collaboration will see Amiqus provide insight, support, guidance and accessible solutions for solicitors across Scotland.

The Law Society of Scotland is teaming up with Edinburgh-based technology firm Amiqus Resolution to develop and deliver software products for law firms across Scotland.

Amiqus helps firms to securely collect, analyse and manage anti-money laundering and compliance information for staff and clients.

The software currently serves a host of clients across multiple regulated professions. The firm has also been a Law Society-approved supplier for two years.

In 2018, the company won the Deloitte Disrupt the Enterprise competition, an annual pitching competition which invites Scotland’s most disruptive and innovative technology start-ups to showcase their ideas in front of a panel of industry leaders.

The collaboration will see Amiqus provide insight, support, guidance and accessible solutions for solicitors across Scotland as they increasingly move toward new ways of working.

As part of a new initiative, Amiqus will support alternative dispute resolution, a development influenced by the International Council of Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) 2020 Conference in Edinburgh.

Callum Murray, CEO at Amiqus, said: “We’ve worked with the Law Society of Scotland for a number of years now and we’re delighted to advance our commitment to the sector.

“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.”

Paul Mosson, executive director of member services and engagement at the Law Society of Scotland, said the collaboration is part of a “wider approach” to enable Scottish law firms to keep pace with an ever-changing tech landscape.

“We are very excited to be working with Amiqus and their team of industry experts as it will enable us to deliver even more world-class services at the cutting edge of technology for our members and their clients,” he said.

“This alliance with technology is part of our wider approach through LawscotTech to keeping Scottish law firms ahead of the curve.”
