SOS200Sussex law firm Coole & Haddock has signed up to SOS Connect from (SOS) as part of its ongoing organic growth plans.

With offices in Horsham and Worthing, Coole & Haddock is a full service law firm with approaching 50 people, with an emphasis on commercial property and corporate work.

Partner Iain Swalwell says the relative ease of adopting and implementing SOS Connect was a major factor in the decision to switch from its legacy provider.

“We did some careful research, looking at the market and paring our decision down to two or three providers,” he says.

“From the outset we liked the simplicity of SOS Connect – it looks good on the screen and is easy to follow. In addition the SOS team gave us a great presentation and had a more personal approach, leaving us reassured that they would deliver good training.

“SOS Connect can grow with the firm in the coming months and years. We have plans for organic growth and our new software those.”

David McNamara, managing director at SOS, said: “Coole & Haddock has a very clear vision of its future growth plans and how IT can help facilitate this process. The firm’s migration to SOS Connect is a key staging post in its continued success.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
