DPS200David Ake & Co Solicitors based in Leeds specialise in criminal defence, mental health law, road traffic law and local agency.

Identifying that they needed to improve their internal systems to be able to compete in the modern environment they looked to cloud based systems that relieved them from IT issues.  Rachael Charles, assistant practice manager at David Ake & Co Solicitors, was heavily involved in the decision making process and in selecting the dpscloud solution from DPS.

She explains her decision to select DPS by emphasizing that “The practice management software from DPS allows our company to work with maximum efficiency and connects the fee earning and accounting functions of our firm allowing everyone to work together.”

The practice signed up with DPS Software in 2015 utilising DPS financial director, legal accounting software, DPS Crime (crime case management & Billing system) all hosted on dpscloud.

“It’s all about efficiency and working together from anywhere” added Rachael Charles, assistant practice manager at David Ake & Co Solicitors.

DPS is the largest legal cloud supplier in the UK and David Ake & Co Solicitors are one of more than 170 UK law firms taking advantage of the DPS hosting solution. According to Rachael, the main benefits of using dpscloud are having only one point of contact, more available storage space as their paper consumption has decreased, enhanced security as their files are stored electronically and are thus less prone to misuse.  All these practical improvements have allowed the Leeds firm to grow and move forward.

McKenzie Friends – a storm in a teapot

Legal Futures Conference 2011Photo by Jonathan Goldberg

If the recent furore about McKenzie Friend Marketplace shows anything, it is that the profession remains acutely sensitive to the apparent threat of competition by unregulated entrants into the legal landscape. But for an outside observer, the whole McKenzie Friend debate remains curiously overblown: if not a storm in a teacup, a storm at least in a teapot. For all the characteristic sturm und drang of the Law Society’s response to last year’s senior judiciary consultation, there was pretty widespread agreement among most respondents that McKenzie Friends are here to stay.
