Our Story

Access specialised tools to make more money from conveyancing

Keeping Conveyancers At The Heart Of Our Property Transactions

Disappointed with how the property industry in 2006 was treating conveyancers who used to be key figures in local communities, David Brown our MD – then Legal Service Director at the Live Organisation – saw that the market was changing. Property law was characterised by high volumes, poor service, terrible margins and deteriorating customer relationships.

More Comprehensive Work And Shorter Turn-around Times

Customers still needed help and support from their conveyancers during the stressful moving process but David realised that they were demanding more comprehensive work and shorter turn-around times that in turn would allow better margins for conveyancers.

Better Margins Allow Conveyancers To Build Stronger And More Customer-focused Practices That Make More Money

Brighter Law Solutions is dedicated to keeping conveyancers at the heart of our property transactions in villages, towns and cities across the UK.

When HIPS came in, it changed the point of sale from the solicitor to the Estate Agent. It decimated High Street conveyancing. Conveyancers suffered. Estate agents suffered. Home buyers suffered. Property lawyers struggled to compete on anything other than price. Service was abandoned as price points didn’t permit good levels of service. There was no differentiation in the conveyancing market place. Many solicitors became disillusioned with the tiny margins on offer and must have wondered where their future lay.

The New Breed Of Homebuyer Was Cash Rich And Time Poor

But the world was changing. David recognised that homebuyers were increasingly busy people and as such, they were demanding higher standards and a more comprehensive service. These homebuyers were happy to pay a premium for exceptional service because of their increasingly busy lives. Our parent company, Property Information Exchange (PIE), first met this new demand with technical solutions that made property searches easier to access.

However, as conveyancing customers become more discerning and demanding the conveyancing market needed more resources and solutions to help conveyancers build stronger, more profitable businesses. PIE created Brighter Law Solutions (2015) to fill this gap in the marketplace.

A One-stop Shop For Conveyancing Professionals

Brighter Law Solutions is a one-stop shop for conveyancing professionals to access specialised tools to make more money from conveyancing.

In 2009, two of David’s colleagues, Paul Clarke and Sam Stanfield who were also at the Live Organisation, joined him at PIE. Since then, through their hard work and dedication, they have both become Directors in the business. Sam, in particular, is key to championing Brighter Law Solutions.

Our Core Ethos At Pie Is To “Add Value”. This Is The Cornerstone Of Everything That We Do

PIE’s rapid growth has allowed us to attract other key industry figures for our team. People whose combined wealth of experience and knowledge will contribute significantly to PIE’s growth.

Beth Rudolf, Don Belcher, Andy Watson and Kirk Brown come to us with significant industry experience and a desire to improve the conveyancers lot. Combined, they have knowledge and industry contacts spanning over a century. The strength and depth of people with a common goal “to empower solicitors” brings us to a new era in the conveyancing market.

Brighter Law Champions Your Sales Activities And Business Development For You

Brighter Law Solutions is the most comprehensive solicitor-centric service model that the conveyancing industry has ever seen. Property lawyers tell us that they loathe selling. Brighter Law champions your sales activities and business development for you. That way you can focus on legal work, building your client relationships, and making more money. It’s the smarter way law firms market conveyancing.

David Brown

Managing Director

“We knew that solicitors didn’t like selling and, frankly, were not that good at it when they did do it. There is little motivation to win low fee conveyancing work. It is almost impossible to survive on the High Street with such low margins. It is demoralising. Firms are not able to deliver the higher quality increasingly demanded by homebuyers at such a low price point. Property lawyers are generally very poorly treated, but I was never quite sure why.

Conveyancing became the legal grunt work that solicitors only begrudgingly carried out because it brought cash flow, and supposedly, new client opportunities into a law firm. Few felt that it could be a sustainable business except with very large volumes. Many High Street firms just didn’t want to do it.

During the down-turn, and now as part of the market improves, demand for a higher quality, faster more comprehensive service, is here. Customers wooed by cheap prices were then disappointed by the poor service. Now, the market is prepared to pay a premium for a service that provides benefits to the customer. Brighter Law Solutions create a model that encourages property lawyers to build better client and community relationships, with better margins that allow them to deliver superior quality to homebuyers and property investors.”

Brighter Law Solutions' Business Champions Make All The Difference

We are not just a power technology provider. Our experts drive your firm’s conveyancing business.

We go above and beyond… and although some of our customers think of us as heroes, we’re really not, we’re just doing our job.

Miriam Saxl
Ford Simey LLP

“As a practice we had known Trevor Hellawell, our Business Champion, for years. Trevor worked with us on our Lexcel accreditation and on compliance training and support. When Trevor joined Brighter Law Solutions and showed us the Brighter Law Suite (software) we were immediately confident that this was a credible proposition”.

technologies and solutions which are actively benefitting their conveyancing operation

Ford Simey had already recognised some issues within their conveyancing operation. As the firm expanded, for example, it was evident that differing working practices like cost calculation and client quotation were at best time consuming and at worst, losing the firm money and potentially exposing them to risk.

“We always had fixed fee scales but each office thought that they needed their own independent scales.  We needed a consistent approach to fees that everyone was comfortable with and which reflected the transaction’s risk. We quickly realised that as well as saving a lot of time in our quotation process that the Brighter Law Suite (software) also gave us the Management Information we really needed. It was key in demonstrating, for example, where fee scales were or were not profitable and where the application of ‘mate’s rates’ might expose us to avoidable risk”.

As a Compliance Manager, Miriam is always focused on ensuring risk is minimised for the firm and the client. This is often at odds with maximising opportunity – there has to be a balance. The expansion in residential new build in Devon, for example, means that as an early adopter of the Brighter Law Suite, Ford Simey were able to become the conveyancer of choice for many developments.

“Trevor is effectively working as a business development resource for the firm by taking our estate agent’s component of Brighter Law Suite to the sales offices on our behalf. Adding this to the improvement we’ve experienced by having the Brighter Law Suite’s quick quote button on our website, it means we are receiving and actioning new conveyancing enquiries seven days a week. The neat bit is that we’re not having to work any harder to achieve this.”

Working with Brighter Law Solutions has introduced Ford Simey to technologies and solutions which are actively benefitting their conveyancing operation.

“When we moved over to Brighter Law Solutions we took the opportunity to review our conveyancing search provision. PIE’s searches (Brighter Law’s parent company) aren’t just competitive, they are supported by excellent customer service. The SPIDER ordering system coupled with Land Registry (INSPIRE) Property Boundaries is fantastic.”

the conveyancer of choice for many developments

Ford Simey is a multi-disciplinary law firm with offices in Exeter, Exmouth, Sidmouth and Honiton.

The firm’s ambition is to cement its reputation and position as one of the leading, most-trusted and reliable law firms in Devon. Ford Simey solicitors are individuals keen to understand clients' needs and act upon them quickly and competently.

Credibility is a watchword which cannot be compromised. Ford Simey engaged Brighter Law Solutions because its people are as credible as its solutions.

Buss Murton Law LLP

“Because we were established in 1713 we get a lot of repeat business. We’re not the cheapest firm in the area. In fact, we generally charge above the average. This doesn’t stop the work coming in and we’re still aiming to grow our volumes by upwards of 100 cases per month.”

Together Buss Murton and Brighter Law Solutions are delivering a seamless client experience

In addition to repeat business, Buss Murton also receive instructions from panels (lower margin) and local referrals (higher margin). A challenge for conveyancers is to balance the mix of instructions to ensure the firm is maximising profits.

“Brighter Law Suite’s Management Information is valuable. Jeremy, our Brighter Law Business Champion, regularly reviews our conversion rates and is helping us ensure enquiry conversions are growing steadily.

When all our teams are using Brighter Law Suite we are able to track conversion rates accurately. We can also test the market to increase fees, adding for example, a “Busy Fee Scale” to help balance workloads etc. The important thing is the confidence we gain. We are competitive and offer a great service and value to our clients. We couldn’t do any of this without the Brighter Law Suite.

“Brighter Law Solutions has made us much more efficient. Previously we could take 3 or 4 hours to get quotes out to a client. We now take 5 – 10 minutes!

On telephone enquiries, fee earners often hear the client’s email ‘ping’ in the background with the arrival of our quote generated through the Brighter Law Suite.

Brighter Law Suite makes phone enquiries and conversions more efficient – impressively so. Recently a client visited our Dartford office to enquire about conveyancing. In the time it took for him to be settled into a meeting room, the fee earner had created a quote and emailed it out. The client was reading it on his smartphone as the fee earner entered the meeting room.”

Balancing business and exceeding expectations

Buss Murton is one of the oldest law firms in the South-East. The firm provides legal services to a wide range of business and personal clients.

Many law firms focus on managing their own risk by producing standardised documents and responses. This approach, however, fails to reflect the nuances of individual cases.  In contrast, Buss Murton Law place a great emphasis on having experienced lawyers give bespoke and practical advice tailored to a client’s particular circumstances.

“The speed of conveyancing means that increasing conveyancing transactions enables us to fund the timescales for billing in activities like criminal and litigation cases.”

Although BCA were clear about their objectives, they also recognised a number of challenges. Critically, too many expensive fee earners were involved in the administration of new business, rather than the delivery of outcomes for the customer.

We are constantly looking to improve efficiency

“Prior to working with Brighter Law Solutions, 15 minutes to generate a quote was common. Staff were using spreadsheets which they then had to cut and paste into Word.

We are constantly looking to improve efficiency and the Brighter Law Suite (software package) helped us with this immensely. We’ve freed up a lot of fee earner time to concentrate on actual conveyancing, while other staff focus on customer service and providing the quotes.

With Brigher Law Solutions we now issue quotes in seconds, no calculator or spreadsheet required. It’s consistent and compliant across the whole of BCA.

Now only three fee earners are involved in quoting. The rest of the quotes go through a first contact person who is competent, customer-focussed and much cheaper. This also happens to be more efficient and successful than the qualified solicitors. When you’re issuing 40 plus quotes per month, saving 15 minutes means we’ve effectively freed up at least 10 hours of fee earner time per month.”

Working with Brighter Law Solutions has had other benefits. With the support of the team at Brighter Law Solutions, BCA have made operational improvements that have made them more profitable and more compliant.

“David Burrell, our Business Champion, trained our first responder. That helped build confidence and identified when and why enquiry conversion rates dropped. Brighter Law Suite’s detailed Management Information package helped identify where more help and support were needed. That first responder is now converting at a rate of 62%.

We continue to roll out our efficiency improvements and plan to use their search payment collection process next. With a couple of simple changes to our case management system we can issue the request to collect payment and order the searches, again saving us so much time”.

With Brighter Law Solutions we now issue quotes in seconds

Bernard Chill & Axtell (BCA) is an established firm of Hampshire solicitors with nearly 70 years of heritage and experience helping others to change their circumstances and ultimately their lives.

Multi-disciplinary practices like BCA are involved in many areas of law where cash flow can be extremely slow. However, unlike many of their contemporaries, BCA have clear objectives to mitigate cash flow impacts.

This time last year, every time a customer rang for a fee estimate, it took far too much time to create the quotation letter and send it to the customer. Thankfully we were offered Brighter Law Suite, and it has made a considerable difference to all of our staff and customers.

The system allows anyone in the office to create a quote in seconds with just the property price, which is great as the customer can be told the fees over the phone. The quote can then be emailed to the client before the end of the call, or sent out in that evenings post. The system stores our open quotes online and the diary system is great for keeping track of follow up calls. I can even run reports at any time to show how many quote enquiries and new customers we’ve won. Setup was easy too. We just gave our fees, logo and a copy of our existing quote letter to Brighter Law Solutions and they did the rest.

Brighter Law Suite is an exceptional system which has simplified our quotation process, saving us time and increasing our business yield. I can’t wait to try more of Brighter Law’s solutions.

David Brown

Managing Director

Our fearless leader started in the property sector in 1997. While Legal Services Director at Live Organisation, David was increasingly disillusioned and frustrated by how poorly conveyancers were being treated as a profession within the industry. He firmly believed that there should be a conveyancer at the heart of every community – someone with extensive local knowledge. Conveyancing had become a commodity. There was little consideration for homebuyers other than price. Transactions were being carried out in an almost warehouse/factory-style environment by inexperienced people who had little knowledge of the homebuyers' community. It was a lot to do with rubber-stamping and ticking boxes. As a champion of the underdog and local communities, David didn’t want to see conveyancing disappear from the High Street. In 2006 he founded Property Information Exchange (PIE) to deliver an outstanding property search service. He also began to develop tools and resources to champion conveyancers in their local marketplaces.

“From the outset, I wanted PIE to be forward thinking, yet approachable. Too many companies lose sight of their main objectives as soon as they get off the ground. I wanted our people, products and services to become synonymous with excellence – and they are. Experience has shown that problems can be resolved cleanly, efficiently and successfully if we have the right team and the best resources available. We created Brighter Law Solutions to do just that – solve conveyancers’ problems.”

David lives in Marlow and is a firm believer in charitable giving. He built an eco-friendly house for his family and has built homes for underprivileged families in Guatemala.

Sam began her rapid rise in the Property sector in 2003. Since then she has gone from strength to strength demonstrating a wealth of experience and knowledge in the industry.

Sam’s proactive and incredibly charming – that’s why clients love her. She has a proven track record of successfully managing relationships and always delivering a first class service.

Sam lives in Wokingham. She loves horses and cats and often steps in to help when they are in distress. In fact, Sam has been involved in re-homing at-risk cats from Spain and has adopted two rescue horses. She is passionate about their love and care. Sam also loves supporting the local communities.

She says of PIE “We are an exceptional community-driven company with a big heart.”

Charity

We are proud to tell our conveyancing partners, and the world, that Property Information Exchange and Brighter Law Solutions donate 10% of our profits to charity.

Not only do we support local and national charities in this fashion - each ‘Employee of the Month’ chooses a charity to receive a £1000 donation from the company. This is one of the many forward-thinking things we do with our team. It’s also another reason why some of our clients think of us as ‘local heroes.’

We make it a practice to encourage sharing - at work, at home, and in our communities. From time to time we all need a helping hand. So we try to give back. We also like to help others achieve their goals. We believe that consistent giving promotes a strong, caring, healthy society, and is to everyone’s benefit.

Below is a selection of recent events that we have supported and some of the donations we have made. We are always particularly pleased to be able to support local individuals, organisations, and charities but as you will see from the list below, we do this across the country too.
