SOS200A North East law firm has become the latest to sign up to SOS Connect integrated practice management and matter management from Solicitors Own Software (SOS).

Headquartered in Darlington, DMA Law is a full service firm with six offices across the North East and was created from the merger of McCardles and Donnelly Adamson.

After having different legal software systems running across its offices, DMA Law has now undergone a series of data conversions and upgraded to SOS Connect.

“This process meant spending a lot of time talking to people at all levels across the firm, so that we could phase in what was a substantial change,” says Lyn Rowe, practice manager at DMA Law.

“We chose SOS Connect because we were impressed by the level of support and value for money involved and in addition, our accounts team had previous knowledge of it.

“We now have a unified, streamlined, efficient system across the firm. Looking forward we would like to add more capabilities, for example the marketing module, but we need to do this in bite-size pieces and we know this is possible with SOS Connect.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “As with many merged firms, DMA Law had a need to consolidate a set of disparate systems which it had inherited and to become more efficient.

“It recognises that SOS Connect retains the flexibility and agility to grow and adapt according to its evolving requirements.”

McKenzie Friends – a storm in a teapot

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.
