SOS200Yorkshire law firm Wrigleys Solicitors is implementing SOS Connect from Solicitors Own Software (SOS) for its Court of Protection work.

The firm, which has over 175 people based in offices in Leeds and Sheffield, has adopted the SOS case management system for its 40-strong Trust and Court of Protection team.

IT manager Robert Porter says the move could lead to the implementation of SOS Connect more widely across the firm, which has an emphasis on private client work but with specialisms in other areas such as charities, education and pensions.

“After looking at several options in the marketplace, Wrigleys opted for SOS Connect. What gave SOS Connect the edge was not only the simple, clean interface but also the sector experience of SOS and their existing application for Court of Protection work.”

David McNamara, managing director at SOS, said: “Wrigleys Solicitors has a clear vision of its future growth plans and how IT can help facilitate them. The adoption of SOS Connect for its Court of Protection work is a significant milestone in this process.

“We are confident the project will prove very successful, leading to a wider roll-out of SOS Connect throughout Wrigleys and its ‘pilot’ approach makes complete sense in acting as a proving ground for the product ahead of a wider take-up.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
