PrintConverge Technology Specialists (Converge TS), the country’s only dedicated cloud computing provider for law firms, has secured another new client adding Greater Manchester and Lancashire law firm Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall to its growing client list.

Converge TS will provide the 200-year old firm, which employs over 100 people across seven offices, with a new operating system and fully-managed hosted desktop (cloud) service, after winning a competitive tender against two other technology providers.

The new technology will help support the continued growth of Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall’s corporate and commercial departments. The hosted cloud will enable the firm to update operations, move to digital records and filing, and provide it with greater security and efficiency when handling client work.

Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall finance director Mike Gillibrand explains: “The decision is client led. In a modern, flexible world the right IT can make a huge difference in how law firms deliver legal services.

“More of our solicitors are working offsite, on the move with clients, and our cloud based software will give them the tools to bring greater efficiencies into the way they advise clients, accessing important documents as and when they need them.

“Whether it’s working with businesses or individuals, due to the nature of our business, we must have a rigorous and robust document storage management system. The process in how we store and recover documents will now be quicker and more secure, bringing greater operational efficiencies,” he concludes.

Converge TS’s founder and managing director Nigel Wright, says: “We are delighted to be helping such a well-established firm move to a cutting edge cloud platform and modernise its operating system.

“It is great to see Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall embrace technology so thoroughly and I am sure they will reap the benefits over the months and years ahead.”

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. 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.
