Company & Product Overview

Quill helps law firms streamline and run law practices better by providing simple and easy-to-use practice management and legal accounts software, as well as outsourced legal cashiering, digital post room, payroll and typing services.

At the heart of its company values is a total commitment to continual service and software development, and maintaining exceptionally high standards of client support and training, which is why Quill is the first choice for many small-to-medium-sized law firms.

In 2022, the Law Society appointed Quill as one of its trusted practice management software providers and outsourced legal cashiering suppliers - making Quill the first-ever legal cashiering supplier recommended by the Law Society.

Quill is privately owned, staunchly independent and long established since 1978. In its early days, they were just a handful of entrepreneurs and developers selling programmable calculators. Today, Quill is a 100-strong team centred on offices in Manchester and Liverpool with 9,000 users across 750 practices.
