Quill Computer Systems, which supplies legal technology, has come 44th in a league table of the top performing private limited companies based in the North West.
The research was conducted by Newsco Publications on behalf of Entrepreneur magazine. The criteria used in compiling the table was based on figures from audited accounts.
Quill Computer System's managing director Tony Landes said: "The past three years have been pretty tough for everyone, including solicitors, but no-one can afford to mark time these days."
He added: "We continually invest in research and development to keep our products relevant to the needs of the market - the legal profession - and this, together with our emphasis on after-sales training and support, is a strategy which has paid dividends."
