As a team we design, develop, deploy, train, service and support the Insight Legal system. The software is entirely our own and we are proudly independent.
We are focused on maintaining our core values of being honest, proudly independent and customer focused ensuring a customer centric approach.
Brian holds almost 30 years’ experience in the provision of software solutions, with a key focus on Property and Legal Software. He is passionate about making a real difference to the everyday lives of legal practitioners and ensuring they understand the value that legal software can bring to the modern workplace. It is his ultimate goal for every law firm to know the name “Insight Legal”.
As well as managing the statutory requirements of the business Brian’s key role within Insight is to build a structured and coherent Strategy for the business for the next one, three, five and ten years. He is also passionate about our Values, Leadership and People and sees the culture of the business as his top priority.
He spends a lot of his time writing articles and recording videos on LinkedIn to further his personal goal of educating law firms on the reputable traits of a software supplier, something he feels strongly about in every business he has an interest in.
Brian is a self-confessed workaholic and gets a real buzz out of the businesses he is involved in. Being Scottish he has been a season ticket holder at Murrayfield for many years and turns up at as many games as possible, regardless of the quality of the rugby being played. He enjoys golf and skiing when he has the time, but admits to not being that good at either. He has two teenage sons, one at Edinburgh University studying Maths and his youngest having just been accepted to join the British Army.

Tim has over 25 years’ experience in the Legal IT sector. Establishing that there was a need for a Legal Software supplier to provide an entirely new legal software product combined with unparalleled support, he founded Insight Legal in 2011. As Founder and Technical Director, Tim uses his expertise and customer-focused ethic to bring high quality but affordable software to law firms, helping customers to achieve compliance, efficient business management and streamlined processes.
Outside of work, Tim is a bit of a whizz in the kitchen and enjoys cooking, perhaps whilst sampling the odd glass of wine. Sporting activities mainly involve watching rugby, motorcycle racing and cricket. He is also the proud father to two teenage children and spends much of his time being frightened about how grown up they are!

I would, and do, recommend Insight to anyone.
We were gobsmacked at Insight’s feature set. It can do all the things we’ve craved for a long time.
It is so straightforward and logical to use that it’s almost impossible to get tasks wrong.
We appreciate this responsive, consistent, supportive service. It’s a stark difference to what other legal software providers are offering.
We are a busy firm and didn’t want to spend too much time on the changeover and subsequent familiarisation. But it was all so easy with Insight Legal’s support and straightforward software.
With Insight Legal, we’ve got the whole works for an affordable fee.
