Legal workflow specialist OchreSoft has announced details of a short seminar season for private client professionals.

The first will be held on 20th June at Old Trafford, Manchester, the second will take place in Crawley on 9th July. Chaired by Viv Williams, CEO of 360 Legal, the events offer a rare opportunity for private client lawyers to meet with their peers at a time of unprecedented change in the probate marketplace.

The programme will combine speakers, roundtable discussion, networking and an exclusive first look at OchreSoft’s latest probate, wills and LPA workflow solution, Intelliworks Private Client. Registration is at 9.30am and the event will conclude with a light lunch.

Richard Bretherton, CEO of OchreSoft, is keen for private client professionals to come together and look to the future: “There’s no doubt that there are challenges ahead for the probate market. Like so many other areas of law, traditional providers are facing competition from new entrants such as Saga, and related pressures such as commoditised fixed fee and self-service.

“The day is designed to explore these challenges and how firms can respond to them through revised strategies, new ways of working and technical innovation.”

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
