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.”

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
