SOS200A North East law firm has become the latest to sign up to SOS Connect integrated practice management and matter management from Solicitors Own Software (SOS).

Headquartered in Darlington, DMA Law is a full service firm with six offices across the North East and was created from the merger of McCardles and Donnelly Adamson.

After having different legal software systems running across its offices, DMA Law has now undergone a series of data conversions and upgraded to SOS Connect.

“This process meant spending a lot of time talking to people at all levels across the firm, so that we could phase in what was a substantial change,” says Lyn Rowe, practice manager at DMA Law.

“We chose SOS Connect because we were impressed by the level of support and value for money involved and in addition, our accounts team had previous knowledge of it.

“We now have a unified, streamlined, efficient system across the firm. Looking forward we would like to add more capabilities, for example the marketing module, but we need to do this in bite-size pieces and we know this is possible with SOS Connect.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “As with many merged firms, DMA Law had a need to consolidate a set of disparate systems which it had inherited and to become more efficient.

“It recognises that SOS Connect retains the flexibility and agility to grow and adapt according to its evolving requirements.”

Court modernisation: Court Service spins response to NAO report

Roger Smith

After months of debate on the court modernisation programme led by Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service, we now have an authoritative analysis from the National Audit Office. HMCTS chief executive Susan Acland-Hood professed herself happy. The report was “helpful and constructive”. She was pleased that “the NAO acknowledges our ‘early progress’”. Her comments were more reflective of spin than the span of the NAO report. The NAO acknowledges the ambitious nature of the reform. But comments like “HMCTS’s change portfolio presents a very significant challenge” need minimal decoding to reveal a bit of concern.
