SOS200Jo Johnson Family Law signed up to the Virtual Practices (VP) hosted legal software and outsourced cashiering service upon setting up her new practice last summer.

Based near Leek in Staffordshire, Jo Johnson works practices in all areas of family law.

“I was used to dealing with case management systems in other practices and needed something similar for my own company from the outset. As far as possible I also wanted my practice to be paperless, which I have achieved with the help of VP,” she says.

“Virtual Practices was recommended by someone I know and this gave me a chance to take a look. I was very impressed with VP from the off and the system has obviously been designed with small practices such as mine in mind.

“I really appreciate the brilliant support provided by VP’s accounts capability, as it really takes the pressure off me in terms of compliance issues.”

Natalie Colbourne, who heads up Virtual Practices, which is a division of legal software supplier Solicitors Own Software, said: “A small firm such as Jo Johnson Family Law demands a high degree of agility and flexibility in its legal software, and this is why Virtual Practices is such a good fit.

“It is always gratifying when a third party recommends VP to another law firm, which in turn decides to adopt the system.”

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.
