Niche commercial property law firm BrookStreet des Roches has signed a six-figure deal for SOS Connect legal software from (SOS) for integrated practice and case management.

The 80-strong practice, based in Abingdon near Oxford, has decided to replace its incumbent system after more than a decade with the same provider.

“We have been with our previous provider since 2003 and obviously practice management systems have developed a lot in that time,” says practice manager Joe Hughes.

“Throughout the selection process we have been driven by seeking out software that provides us with excellent document and client relationship management processes that we can develop to meet our changing needs.

“The accounts functionality is of equal importance to the firm, but we see our return on the investment coming from us being enabled to become more functional and collaborative across our teams, and encouraging cross-selling.

“We will be going live with SOS Connect in the autumn but already we can envisage where it will improve our services over the next three years of development of our working methods – ultimately it is all about providing a better, faster and more functional service to our clients.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “BrookStreet des Roches is another example of a successful, forward-thinking legal practice which has come to appreciate the benefits which SOS Connect can bring.

“We look forward to building a long and fruitful relationship with the firm.”

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
