London law firm QualitySolicitors Amphlett Lissimore is rolling out SOS Connect for integrated practice and case management as it looks to boost performance.

The firm is a long-standing client of legal software supplier (SOS), but decided to upgrade to the flagship SOS Connect application as part of a drive to maximise recovery of time.

With offices in Crystal Palace and Camberwell, QualitySolicitors Amphlett Lissimore has eight partners and around 60 staff. It carries out a full range of SME business and private client work, with specialisms in the areas of childcare, family, property and crime.

“The key reason for adopting SOS Connect was the pressing need to integrate e-mails into our case management system, and also to improve our financial tracking,” says partner Frank Lissimore. “We recognise that through using SOS Connect, better time recording will result in better financial control.

“The initial stimulus came from our childcare team, which had the greatest need for a new generation of case management, including e-mail integration, but we will move the entire firm across to SOS Connect in due course and roll it out across our litigation, family and property teams.”

Mr Lissimore says SOS’s dedicated national user group was a key factor in persuading the firm to opt for SOS Connect.

“We already knew SOS very well and, although there are other software vendors in the market, SOS remains our supplier of choice. We like the fact that SOS is an independent supplier and has its own user group, who gave us some good feedback, and an annual conference. All of those characteristics really suit a firm such as ours.

“In addition we simply like working with SOS: they are very nice people and are great to deal with.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “We have had a good relationship with QualitySolicitors Amphlett Lissimore for several years but it is always gratifying when a long-standing and valued client grows to the extent that it comes to appreciate and require the added value that SOS Connect provides.”

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.
