SOS200The South West’s largest family law company has replaced its incumbent IT system with SOS Connect from Solicitors Own Software (SOS) as it embarks on a new phase of growth.

The Family Law Company has 75 people based in Plymouth and Exeter and operates across the full range of family law disciplines, taking in both private and Legal Aid work.

“When I joined the company around a year ago I took soundings about our IT and it was apparent that people were not content with the system which was in place,” says chief operating officer Jake Moores.

“I then began looking at what else was out there in the market and set out our requirements in terms of what was essential and what was desirable.

“The entire process took around six months, which is a long time, but we needed to get it right. After numerous demonstrations from several providers to different groups of people in the company, we decided that SOS Connect was the best all-round solution in terms of enabling us to fully manage our cases, financials and our data.

“We are looking to grow in the future and one of the attractions of SOS Connect is that it can assist us in that process.”

Jane Chanot, chairman of the Family Law Company, added: “I am very excited to be working with SOS to implement such an innovative and efficient case management system.”

David McNamara, managing director at SOS, said: “As well as full practice law firms, SOS Connect is ideal for specialists and The Family Law Company is a great example of the type of new, ambitious niche law firms which are signing up.”

The ethics of the SRA’s social media warning notice

Mena Ruparel

Social media portals are regularly used by firms and those who work for law firms in both professional and personal capacities. Their informal nature and the fast pace of use makes it all too easy for regulated people to get carried away with online discussions or comments which can fall foul of the regulator. This is more likely to happen on social media platforms as these are virtual, accessed in the solicitor’s own time and space. It can be easy to forget that solicitors are regulated just the same at 11pm on their home computer as they are at 3pm in the office or at court.
