Anderson Strathern invests in ID software firm Amiqus
Partnership: Callum Murray and Bruce Farquhar
Law firm Anderson Strathern has invested in identity verification company Amiqus and will be adopting its anti-money laundering and other compliance software.
Anderson Strathern has backed Amiqus via the Equity Gap angel syndicate, marking its second investment through its AS Capital division.
The law firm’s chairman Bruce Farquhar, said: “Amiqus ID verification software will enable us to provide a smoother and more secure client experience.
“We’ve also chosen to invest in Amiqus and collaborate with them because we recognise the increasing importance of digital and web-based services for the future delivery of legal services.
“The online space offers the prospect of widening access to justice in the future and we’re also keen to support local businesses with great ideas for impact.
“We are the first law firm globally to sign up for The World’s Big Sleep Out in conjunction with Meritas and Social Bite and we’re very interested in the work that Amiqus is doing with ProxyAddress to help people at risk of homelessness access vital services.”
Amiqus CEO Callum Murray said it was a first step towards supporting professional services into new ways of working.
