We’ve come a long way in the last few years…
5 key moments
It’s been an incredible journey so far…
Our founder, George Blair, set out to successfully provide law firms with smart business solutions that boost the bottom line, improve office efficiency, and maintain Law Society compliance. It was that simple. Little did he know then that this would be the beginning of a 40 year journey. It all started with providing law firms with legal accounting machines, printers and personal computers.
Ground-breaking introduction of new Executry module in Legal Intelligence Software. Adding the ability to capture all estate information in easy to navigate cases, adding details on beneficiaries, assets, and liabilities. This came with the ability to have HMRC forms generated from within the software and populated with data from the case.
We announced the immediate availability of the Denovo Intelligent Cloud Software as a Service. Intelligent Cloud delivered an unrivalled set of features available wherever you are, whatever the device you use. Full Legal Case Management, Accounts, Time Recording, Legal Aid, Executry and Storage. On launch the system linked seamlessly with most smart phones, iPhones and iPads, etc. This meant that you could work on the move for the first time.
In 2019 and we embarked on an ambitious software development plan and completely re-designed our software from the ground up. Our efforts listening, working, and innovating with law firms meant we integrated our technology into the DNA of legal practices. As a result, we would now have a very modern, scalable, feature rich suite of software designed for law firms of all sizes.
Step forward into 2023 and our software can now cover all the departments within a legal firm from Accounts, Case Management, Workflow, Cashroom, Executry and more. We now have the widest range of choice within the one suite of software. All features are fully customisable to the way your law firm operates. Over the years the software has changed but our objective is and has always remained the same – give lawyers more time to spend with their clients, automate their processes to help manage their businesses, have a more productive working day and to get some of their personal time back.

What is Denovo’s mission?
Make Lawyers lives easier.
The people who make the business a success
The ethos of Denovo has always been to focus on the fact that our team are not just a group of people who work together. It’s a group of people who trust each other. We treat our law firm partners in the exact same way.
What’s it like working with Denovo?
It’s a good time (we have a games room and some cracking cake makers!). It’s hard work. It’s full of positive vibes. Of course it can be challenging, but the rewards of working with some of the most loyal, smart, supportive people make every hurdle easier to jump. If you’re looking for a team of people who put the customer at the centre of everything they do, you’re in the right place.
We are often asked what the single unique selling point of our business is. There is one simple answer – Our Team. The people are the lifeblood of Denovo. Of course many businesses out there have great teams but we like to think we try a bit harder than the rest. Our people are the reason why law firms love working with us. Yeah, our software is great but without these incredible people we would simply be a software provider. We are so much more.
