SOS200South Wales law firm QualitySolicitors David & Snape is the latest to sign up to SOS Connect integrated practice management and matter management from Solicitors Own Software.

The firm is undergoing a full data conversion to SOS Connect after several years with one of its competitor legal software providers.

QualitySolicitors David & Snape is a full service law firm with offices in Bridgend and Porthcawl.

“This change has been long overdue,” says partner Jonathan Chubb.

“Our previous software had felt ‘ahead of the game’ at the time but we’d known for a while that the time had come for a change. We looked into switching supplier some time ago and, with the assistance of an external consultant, identified SOS as our preferred option.

“We had also recruited a colleague who had experience of doing business with SOS, and they were able to reinforce the message that SOS Connect would be a suitable system for our requirements.

“We’re taking things one step at a time but we may look to go on to install a workflow system for conveyancing with SOS, following the initial phase of matter management.

“As part of the exercise we are also having a complete refresh and upgrade of our hardware, so it all fits with the firm’s vision and overall business plan.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “Like many other mid-tier law firms, QS David & Snape has recognised that SOS Connect is ideal for its needs and that it retains the flexibility and agility to grow and adapt according to evolving requirements.”

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.
