North West Lancashire and Cumbria law firm Wright & Lord Solicitors has gone live with integrated practice and case management with SOS Connect from Solicitors Own Software.

A full service law firm with two offices in Morecambe and another in nearby Milnthorpe, Wright & Lord is using SOS Connect’s conveyancing, wills, probate and lasting power of attorney applications as it looks towards a new phase of growth in 2017.

“We reached the point where we wanted to look at adopting new technology in the firm, giving us the ability to manage our data more effectively and efficiently, and improve our admin and recording,” says Martin Bilton, IT systems manager at Wright & Lord Solicitors.

“Our IT staff are working to develop SOS Connect to our own needs and this is very much part of the development and expansion of the firm, from the point of view not only of client service, but also of marketing.”

Graham Colbourne, managing director of SOS, said: “Some law firms want to utilise their legal software in a more collaborative, targeted and tailored way, and Wright & Lord Solicitors has found that SOS Connect is sufficiently flexible and adaptable for this purpose.”

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.
