Harper James Solicitors is delighted to announce that we’ve become legal advisers to one of the UK’s leading bespoke software development companies.
Hampshire-based DCSL Software has chosen us to provide their business with ongoing legal support, following a recommendation by one of our existing clients. DCSL Software has achieved Microsoft Gold Application Development status. The award-winning agency designs intelligent, cost effective and intuitive web applications, desktop applications and mobile apps that help streamline processes for businesses.
When Nick Thompson, Managing Director, purchased DCSL Software in 2013, the company had just 12 employees. Now, they have close to 70 members of staff and they’re still growing. They have delivered software to big name brands such as BT, Virgin Media, Lidl, Ikea and the NHS.
Commenting on the recent partnership, Nick Thompson said: “There is a huge demand for our services and, as the technology landscape evolves, so do we. In the last two years, we’ve been investing in certain client projects, as well as capital investments, and we’re now looking at further investments to grow the ‘vertical’ opportunities alongside traditional consultancy work.”
Nick continued: “With so many on-going projects and investments we knew connecting with the right solicitors was very important. When I heard about Harper James’s Enterprise subscription service, it struck me as being a disruptive model and I was really impressed.’
The company came on board with Harper James in August and has since worked closely with our commercial solicitor Sarah Gunton. Sarah has advised them on several customer contract negotiations, reviewed employment contracts and handbooks, and rewritten their terms and conditions.
Nick said: “The service we’ve received has been excellent. When a customer recently made some minor comments on our terms and conditions, I forwarded them to Sarah and, within a few hours, the answers I needed were sent back.
“One of the main things I’ve said to others about Harper James is that I actually use their services without hesitation. It can be a challenge to find a firm you can really trust, and sometimes there can even be large fees attached to services like this, which can make you reticent about picking up the phone. We’ve experienced high levels of professionalism with Harper James, and all for a reasonable cost.”
Our CEO Toby Harper said: “DCSL is a forward thinking, fast growing software development company that is enjoying great success. It’s been a pleasure working with Nick, and we’re delighted to support the business in its growth. It’s a fantastic collaboration and I hope we’ll continue to work together for a long time.”
