Merali Beedle are a property boutique law firm based in the heart of London.  They pride themselves on their commitment to provide a high quality, personalised service characterised by spending time with their clients and understanding their needs.

After breaking off from an existing law firm Adam Merali, one of the founding partners of Merali Beedle chose DPS’s holistic IT solution to provide their staff with a powerful practice management software for their conveyancing firm along with hardware support and technical assistance, all in the cloud using dpscloud.

Adam explains ‘’The main benefit of the integrated, cloud-based system provided by DPS is the possibility to reinvent the way we work. The system enabled us to promote flexible working among our staff right from the get-go, and allow them to securely access their files from anywhere in the world, using their own PCs. This enables the firm to respond to client queries outside of normal working hours. ‘’

dpscloud allows Merali Beedle, to take their files with them wherever they go, while Adam Merali can use it to monitor everyone’s workload at any given time in the day regardless of his location.

As all their files are stored within dpscloud, their office becomes increasingly paper light allowing Merali Beedle to incorporate more staff while becoming more efficient. By reducing the need for storage space, and filing cabinets, Merali Beedle are also reducing their overhead costs.

’Right from the start, we knew that we wanted to set up a paperless office. DPS’s practice management software allows us to store all our files safely, in the cloud and not worry about paper documents being misplaced or handled incorrectly.’’ Data security is a major consideration for the firm. DPS’s ISO accredited data centre provides them with a secure, IT infrastructure that would be very costly to replicate in-house.

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
