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.”

Be careful you do not leave anything behind: will we see the end of chambers?

Charles Feeny

Experience of practice by digital support suggests that working practices will become much more informal and spontaneous, not requiring support by specific entities or even contractual arrangements. This is likely to be particularly true of the Bar, which is or should be a profession focusing on individuals. The future of the Bar is more likely to resemble a library as seen in Scotland and Ireland – albeit an electronic library – rather than the traditional chambers structure.
