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.”

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.
