Personal injury specialist Snipelaw is celebrating 20 years of using practice management and legal accounts software from Legal Futures Associate .

The software has proven to be robust and reliable and has provided a significant return on investment.

Based in Blackpool, Snipelaw was founded in the 1970s when Ian Snipe took over an offshoot of a Manchester law firm to specialise exclusively in personal injury and some related road traffic accident claims. Today the firm employs around 25 people. As members of a successful solicitor marketing group, Snipelaw receives a good flow of interesting and often quite challenging work.

Commenting on the milestone, Mr Snipe said: “Since we went live in 1991, the SOS system has worked faultlessly and has never let us down. SOS has consistently provided excellent, personal service and has kept the software up-to-date. Even as a smaller client we feel that our business is appreciated and important to them.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS said: “We are delighted to have reached such a milestone anniversary with Snipelaw. It proves SOS has kept to the right philosophy about building long-term partnerships with clients and developing the SOS community. There is enormous value in a product that works well and without issue that lets a law firm focus on its core business activities and clients.

“As Ian has grown Snipelaw, he will have also witnessed the ongoing evolution of SOS; we share equal pride in this milestone and look forward to the future.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
