Why a niche market can work so well for an entrepreneurial Legal IT Specialist

Now in their 11th year, SproutIT, a fast growing, Legal IT Specialist, has gone from strength to strength supporting the UK Legal market.

Based in Temple, in the heart of London’s legal district, SproutIT was founded in 2006. Danny Killeen, CEO and Matt Torrens, Managing Director, aim to consistently provide the highest possible level of IT Support, Consultancy and Strategy to the Legal sector.

Matt Torrens, MD at SproutIT said “From the outset, our vision was to build the very best support and consultancy machine, dedicated to legal firms, based on our deep understanding of the needs of the sector.  Serving this niche market has enabled us to focus solely on the requirements of law firms, legal related specialists and chambers and we continue to build our knowledge and experience.  We have grown alongside many of our customers and, in turn, their own growth coupled with market forces, has meant a sharp increase in their IT needs.  We are regarded as genuine specialists in the legal sector; there have been many times when we have been asked to help organisations in other sectors, but have chosen to continue with this niche market as we continue our focus on building the number one, go-to team for UK Legal support, consultancy and strategy.”

SproutIT boasts an outstanding client base of customers from the legal sector, recently winning the contract to support Vardags, an elite team of Britain’s best divorce lawyers specialising in high net worth, complex and international divorce cases led by Ayesha Vardag, “Britain’s top divorce lawyer”, BCL, a  market leader specialising in criminal fraud, business crime and regulatory enforcement, and TeacherStern, a leading full service commercial law firm.  Other clients include many of the leading barristers’ chambers including Matrix Chambers, 4 Pump Court, 11KBW and Quadrant Chambers.

SproutIT has grown organically to over 40 employees enjoying 20% year-on-year growth and, in June 2017, opened a New Zealand office to support a pure, in-house 24x7x365 service operation.  As well as providing strategic consultancy and support, there is also a keen focus on Private Legal Cloud (SproutCloud®), Cyber Security and, most recently, GDPR.

Currently on the short list for the Sunday Times Tech 100 for ‘ones to watch’, servicing a niche market is certainly working well for SproutIT.
