We are delighted to announce external investment into The Link App. The Link App is a cutting edge app designed to improve communication between lawyers and their clients – and set law firms apart in this regard from their competitors. Surveys routinely show that clients judge their lawyers on their quality of service, rather than legal expertise (which they are not in a position to judge anyway). So an app that shows a law firm to be accessible, responsive and modern will do wonders for their brand and reputation – a key part of winning more business! – at the same time as improving their efficiency and increasing productivity. Clients install The Link App on their smartphones to receive regular (often real time) updates from their lawyers direct to mobile, eradicating the need for clients to chase for progress reports and also – surprisingly perhaps – tightening security as, unlike most email traffic, exchanges via the app are encrypted. Founder and CEO Lauren Riley was a qualified lawyer before setting up The Link App. Her inspiration for the design of this client communication tool came from her direct experience of what matters to clients and how to keep them happy. Lauren said: “Since launching The Link App I’ve been blown away by the legal market’s enthusiasm for a fresh approach to client communication. This investment from Jenson SEIS and EIS Fund 4 enables us to take the business to the next level. Law firms recognise clients are crying out for lawyers who are responsive and accessible. Differentiating themselves this way using the app is an easy win. “ We look forward to keeping you updated about our progress and continued growth.
