Telephone answering specialist Moneypenny is reporting an overall 13% rise in average call volume to its dedicated legal receptionists so far in December.

Managing Director Glenn Jackson explains: “We typically see a boost in calls to our legal teams at this time of year, particularly to those receptionists who take calls for conveyancers as people seek to push their house sales over the line before the New Year. This correlates with a very busy December over in our property teams where we are taking far more calls for house valuations than we normally would expect at this time of year so it looks like conveyancers will be busy into 2014 too.

“On the flip side we are seeing a slight decrease in calls to our family lawyers at present although we fully expect that to change as it does most years in January.”

Moneypenny is available to provide holiday cover for the festive season should you need help answering your telephone calls over the Christmas and New Year period.

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.
