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.”

Make your mark: Personal branding for barristers

stand out from the crowd

A recent Legal Futures article reported that the number complaints involving use of social media by barristers is increasing. The BSB have warned that “as social media and the internet become more prominent in our daily lives, there is an increasing need for barristers to be very careful about what they post whether in their professional or personal lives”. While inappropriate use of social media isn’t anything new, what struck me when reading that paragraph is that, for barristers, I would argue, there shouldn’t be a defining line between the personal and professional. As a barrister, you are your own USP, your personal brand is everything.
