Press Release: LSSA and Free2Convey

Press Release

21st April 2016

Julian Bryan, Chair, Legal Software Suppliers Association

LSSA and Free2Convey

At last week’s annual general meeting the LSSA membership welcomed the continuing development of Free2Convey but also recognised the differences between Pracctice and some LSSA members in commercial and market strategy, functional scope and product direction. As such it was agreed that it was more appropriate for individual members to have separate commercial arrangements with Pracctice over the use of the Free2Convey portal rather than through an umbrella agreement with the LSSA as dictated by client demand.

Free2Convey will continue to be developed and marketed by Pracctice Ltd, an LSSA member company, and the LSSA warmly applauds Pracctice for making the Free2Convey concept an exciting reality and wishes it success with the future development of Free2Convey.

Julian Bryan, LSSA Chair comments: “As the project has developed we found that the LSSA and Pracctice, who have undertaken the technical development of the Free2Convey project, did not share a commonality of vision for the future direction of the project. We are very happy to have lent our support to our member firm Pracctice to launch the product and we wish the firm well with its future development of Free2Convey.”

Matt Lancaster, Sales & Marketing Director Pracctice Limited, comments: “We are grateful for the support from the LSSA members in promoting Free2Convey to the legal profession and other stakeholders. Pracctice is looking forward to progressing with the development and marketing of Free2Convey.”
