SOS200Long-established London law firm Payne Hicks Beach has signed up to SOS Connect from Solicitors Own Software (SOS) for document and matter management.

The firm, which has 140 people based at its Lincoln’s Inn offices, focuses primarily on private client, family and corporate work.

Virginia Farquharson, director of finance and administration, says it had previously used two separate software systems.

“We had decided to replace our document management system and then it became apparent that our accounting system was not being developed anymore, so we decided to look for a single replacement that could perform both functions,” she says.

“We did not require anything too complex and SOS Connect provided an all-in solution in a very straightforward way.”

Graham Colbourne, managing director of SOS, said: “Adopting SOS Connect will enhance and improve procedures and performance at Payne Hicks Beach. It is an extremely prestigious London law firm and we look forward to working with the team in the coming months and years.”

The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
