SOS200Wards Solicitors has become the latest law firm to sign up to the SOS Connect practice and case management system from Solicitors Own Software (SOS).

The firm, which has ten offices throughout Bristol and surrounding areas, carries out a range of legal work for businesses and individuals.

It has used SOS practice management software for several years but has now signed up to replace its incumbent case management software with SOS Connect.

“With a growing network of offices in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset and North Somerset, we are looking for a more consistent approach across the whole firm”, says David Sheridan, managing partner at Wards Solicitors.

“SOS Connect is very flexible and customisable and can be rolled out in phases, with phase one being a matter management system for the whole firm. Implementation has also given us the opportunity to review and enforce some key compliance procedures.

“Our aim is to provide workflow functionality for each area of work in future enhancements including providing better marketing functionality.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “We already had a long-standing relationship with Wards Solicitors. However the firm has now reached the stage where it needs a more unified approach across its various offices and we look forward to working closely with the firm on its roll-out of SOS Connect.”

Be careful you do not leave anything behind: will we see the end of chambers?

Charles Feeny

Experience of practice by digital support suggests that working practices will become much more informal and spontaneous, not requiring support by specific entities or even contractual arrangements. This is likely to be particularly true of the Bar, which is or should be a profession focusing on individuals. The future of the Bar is more likely to resemble a library as seen in Scotland and Ireland – albeit an electronic library – rather than the traditional chambers structure.
