Solicitors Own Software (SOS) is supporting two prestigious national events for mid-tier law firms in the coming months.

The company is a sponsor of the Legal Practice Management Conference, which takes place on 21st May at London’s Millennium Hotel. Organised by the Legal Support Network, the event is aimed at practice managers and directors, heads of operations and heads of finance at small and mid-tier law firms.

SOS is also supporting this year’s Alternative Legal IT Conference, being held at Heythrop Park Resort in Oxfordshire, on 17th and 18th September. The Alternative Legal IT Conference focuses solely on the needs of mid-tier firms, and this is reflected in the speakers, case studies and solutions which are featured at the two-day event.

David McNamara, managing director of Solicitors Own Software, said: “This is a time of tremendous change for mid-tier law firms. “We are making our commitment to these firms even more visible this year by having a presence at more conferences and events, helping them to streamline their operations, improve their client experience and manage risk and compliance issues.”

Please visit the SOS stand at either event to discuss your firm’s needs, meet senior members of our team and see SOS Connect in action.

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.
