TV Edwards, a highly-respected London law firm with a national reputation covering publicly-funded and private work, has selected Partner for Windows from Legal Futures Associate TikitTFB to replace its current IRIS AIM Evolution system.

The new system will cater for all practice and case management aspects of the business at a time of rapid expansion for the firm, following its recent announcement of mergers with two other London firms, which will take its headcount close to 200 staff.

Partner for Windows will enable the firm to manage the increasing workload more efficiently, whilst the extensive reporting facilities, including the Digital Dashboard and Partner TaskCentre modules, ensure that senior management can be confident that risk and compliance protocols are being automatically monitored by the system.

In conjunction with moving to Partner for Windows, TV Edwards has also recognised the benefits of a fully-managed, hosted solution which provides an ideal environment for its multiple office locations and facilitates 24/7 access for staff. This is the latest in a number of Partner for Windows clients to chose the hosted route and further illustrates the software’s proven ability to quickly adapt to a rapidly-changing market.

TV Edwards’ managing partner, Jenny Beck, said: “Sourcing a system from a supplier who we were confident would support the aspirations of this firm whilst providing a solid and reliable practice management platform was quite a challenging prospect, but Partner for Windows delivers everything that we need to enhance the performance of our successful team. 

“We already knew of other firms who were satisfied users of Partner for Windows and with the help of the TikitTFB sales and projects teams our decision was made so much easier.”

TV Edwards is the latest in a series of high-profile, publicly-funded practices to implement Partner for Windows in recent years. TikitTFB’s sales director, Richard Higgs, said: “At a time when there is a lot of concern about the future of the high street practice, it is refreshing to find a firm who is looking forward positively and grasping the opportunity with both hands. We look forward to working with TV Edwards for many years to come.”

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.
