The Link App, the legal technology start-up founded by Manchester solicitor and former star of BBC's The Apprentice Lauren Riley has unveiled a "new and improved product".

The five products that make up the communication platform, including the mobile app for clients, have been updated with the goal of improving the interaction between law firms and clients.

The tool allows clients to receive messages and updates on their cases and also enables them to respond back in a matter of seconds.

"I am so proud of our team for the incredible energy and dedication they have put into bringing this new and improved version of The Link App to life," said Riley.

"We have put all the knowledge gathered over the last four intense but incredible years into this release, having had so much learning from our early law firm users - thank you to them.

"New features and improved user interfaces dominate this release. We are dedicated to solving the key pain point of client communication and I can’t wait to see Version 2.0 of The Link App rolled out to the sector, it is a very exciting time indeed!"

The Link App was founded four years ago and is backed by Mercia Fund Managers.
