13.10 Document Direct, one of our key MLS Advantage Partners has just received the extremely prestigious accolade of being formally endorsed by the Law Society of England and Wales.

 They join another of our members Moneypenny on this very exclusive roster.

 Document Direct provides an integrated typing and transcription service which can save our members over 50% on their typing costs. They also offer significant other benefits of a 24/7 typing and document production service, and significant savings on overheads and related capital costs.

Martyn Best, a Chartered Accountant, formerly with Ernst & Young is founder and  Chief Executive of Document Direct, and having established the company in 2005, it now delivers its service to over 140 clients in the UK, Ireland and across the globe.

The service is supported by over 140 experienced and professional legal and medical secretaries, all of whom are based in the UK.

Simon Drane, Executive Director of Business Development of the Law Society said: “The Law Society is always seeking to support its members to reduce costs through working in a more efficient manner.

“Outsourcing transcription services is a growing area of interest to our members.

“The Society conducted a robust tender process to select Document Direct as the preferred supplier of those services.

“Document Direct delivers an excellent transcription service to law firms throughout the UK and across the globe. They demonstrated a thorough and sensitive understanding of the issues involved in moving typing to an external provider. Their approach to confidentiality and security should give confidence to our members and we are delighted that they have accepted our invitation to become an endorsed partner of the Law Society.”

Martyn Best, said: “Document Direct strives to reflect the professionalism and client service provided by our legal and other customers and we achieve this on a daily basis. Our customers include Top 30 law firms Hill Dickinson, Lewis Silkin and Nabarro together with many mid-tier firms across the North-West, UK and Ireland.

“We are delighted to have been appointed as an endorsed partner of the Law Society and we are looking forward to working with the Law Society and its members. Our service will help them save money, improve their own efficiency and client service and help make their professional and personal lives easier.”

Our very own Bill Kirby assessed the worthiness of Document Direct to become a member of MLS Advantage over two years ago, and he was delighted to hear of this news, “Document Direct’s services represent all that is good about one of my favourite subjects of “agile working”. They have taken a long-standing and traditional service such as typing and transformed it to provide a more efficient and flexible means of delivering what today’s modern lawyers need. Once again, through clever use of technology, we are seeing another great service being made available to our members.”

The appointment represents the continuing development of the Law Society of England and Wales’ Membership Extra programme which has successfully delivered additional benefits to its members for the last 15 years –

Document Direct has offices in London, Liverpool and Dublin.
