Matt Lancaster, Sales and Marketing Director of Osprey Legal Cloud has been appointed as the new Chairman of the Legal Software Suppliers Association (LSSA), the UK industry body for legal systems developers and vendors. Lancaster takes over from Glyn Morris.

 “The LSSA’s collective clients form the majority of law firms in the UK. My vision is to passionately promote the LSSA as a leading representative body and to address issues that affect the legal software industry.” comments Matt Lancaster, incoming LSSA Chairman. I would like to thank Glyn Morris, as outgoing Chairman for his fantastic work over the past year. I would also like to thank “Mr LSSA” Roger Hancock for his 19 years of service as Chief Executive during which he has shaped and guided the organisation superbly. We all wish him well in his retirement.”

Dominic Cullis of Easy Convey Ltd takes up the role as Vice Chair. Phil Snee of Linetime Ltd continues as Treasurer and Patrick Carmody of Perfect Software Ltd as Chair of the Membership Committee. Steve Dixon of Select Software will now chair the Disciplinary committee.

At last week’s AGM Roger Hancock retired as Chief Executive of the LSSA. Hancock had held this role for over 19 years and was presented with a leaving gift from the membership. Glyn Morris steps into the role of Chief Executive.

The LSSA is responsible for setting and maintaining professional standards within the legal software industry, and also manages areas of mutual interest between lawyers and software providers.  The LSSA also has links with a number of legislative bodies – including the Land Registry, HMRC, The Law Society, the Court Service and the LAA – and is committed to developing clear channels of communication so that law firms can gain the maximum benefit from their selected software solutions.
