Leading south-east law firm IBB Solicitors has signed a six-figure deal to roll out SOS Connect for integrated case and practice management. IBB is replacing its existing system with SOS Connect legal software from .

IBB Solicitors is a full-service law firm based in Uxbridge in west London. The firm services a broad range of client work arranged in four practice groups, with a fifth business support group covering management and back-office support for the firm.

Joanna DeBiase, operations partner, confirmed that the transition to the SOS practice management system should be complete by the middle of next year.

“Our previous practice management system has served us well since 1997 – however, our existing provider had no successor product in place. We were looking for something new which would both update the ageing PMS functionality and provide us with a solid platform for developing new client systems.

“Using SOS Connect I am expecting to be able to continue moving towards a single electronic file for routine work and to utilise tablets paired with remote working capabilities, to really free the fee-earners to work seamlessly away from the office. SOS Connect will play a part in providing the case inception and time recording capabilities, alongside our document management and e-mail systems.

“In the current economic climate, SOS Connect proved to be a very cost-effective solution and we look forward to working with the SOS team to explore new ways to achieve a really good return on our investment.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “IBB Solicitors had established front-office systems in place for some time.

“However, the firm had come to the point where it also required a really capable and agile practice management system, along with an established provider who could integrate these components. Our team is now working with IBB to realise this fully streamlined and efficient operation.”

How to protect your firm from ransomware

Adam Curtis Hoowla

One news item has dominated the headlines over the last week – cyber-attacks and, in particular, the WannaCry ransomware. It is a well-known and well-documented fact that the legal industry, and conveyancing in particular, can be a vulnerable and high value target. This ranges from property hijacking – where fraudsters pose as legitimate owners of a property and sell it on without the real owner’s knowledge – to ‘Friday afternoon fraud’, with criminals contacting a busy law firm to ‘update’ their bank details to redirect funds.
