(SOS) is pleased to report that the Legal IT Business Show 2013, held in London earlier this month, was yet again a worthwhile investment for the company.

Over 30 legal businesses visited the SOS stand to receive an introductory demonstration of SOS Connect, a figure which is consistent with the two previous years.

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “Once again we had a good number of conversations with a wide range of progressive legal businesses at the show.

“In this first week after the event there has already been some excellent follow-up, with two onsite scoping meetings booked with large firms, each with over 100 potential users of SOS software, along with a number of meetings booked with mid-tier firms.”

SOS also conducted a survey to provide sector and marketing insights. When asked “What was your main reason for attending this event?” the variety of responses included:

  • Review case management systems
  • General interest in services
  • Purchase practice management software
  • Review of current products on market
  • See what’s new
  • Product updates
  • System replacement
  • Meet providers
  • See developments

Participants in the survey were entered into a prize draw, which saw Lynn Miller from Whitehead Monckton winning a Nikon camera.

David McNamara concluded: “SOS was proud to sponsor the Legal IT Business Show 2013 – largely as it is the only free-to-attend, exhibition-focused event that remains in the legal sector where delegates have enough time to meet suppliers and receive a useful demonstration of the software on offer.”

McKenzie Friends – a storm in a teapot

If the recent furore about McKenzie Friend Marketplace shows anything, it is that the profession remains acutely sensitive to the apparent threat of competition by unregulated entrants into the legal landscape. But for an outside observer, the whole McKenzie Friend debate remains curiously overblown: if not a storm in a teacup, a storm at least in a teapot. For all the characteristic sturm und drang of the Law Society’s response to last year’s senior judiciary consultation, there was pretty widespread agreement among most respondents that McKenzie Friends are here to stay.
