An Edinburgh-based IT business has the legal sector firmly in its sights after cornering a fifth of the market to date.
Commsworld, which supplies services such as ultra-fast broadband and internet-based telephony, said significant client wins in the last year include Burness Paull, Shepherd & Wedderburn and Anderson Strathern.
The firm can now count 11 of the 55 firms listed in the most recent Legal 500 directory of top performing Scottish law firms as customers.
Chief executive Ricky Nicol said: “It’s fantastic news and testament to the hard work we’ve put in over the past few years that such an important sector is showing this level of trust in our business.
“Fast and secure communications are, of course, vital for the smooth running of legal practices and the privacy of their clients – and we are delighted to be able to offer this across the board. We realise what a valuable endorsement these kinds of figures are and how well they reflect on what we do.”
New advancements, including the implementation of the CityFibre Edinburgh ultra-fast business network – of which Commsworld is the official partner – have helped boost business further and involvement in similar projects in Glasgow and Aberdeen have increased reach and exposure throughout Scotland.
Commsworld, which was founded in 1994, currently employs 63 staff.
