IRIS Legal has announced an offer to all 2e2 legal sector clients to move their hosted and break-fix solutions to the award-winning IRIS Legal service, irrespective of the practice management software they use, to keep their business up and running and minimise risk and potential impact on the firm.

The offer consists of packages to move to the IRIS Legal Hosted and/or Break-Fix service by migrating from their current solution with no installation charges.

IRIS Legal is one of the largest suppliers of hosting and break-fix solutions in the UK legal market, already supporting some 420 customers with over 4,200 users on its hosted platform, whilst supporting over 100,000 devices in its Break-Fix service, across the legal sector.

As part of the CSH Group of companies, which is ultimately owned by private equity firm HG Capital, IRIS Legal enjoys a financially strong and stable position, with a growing turnover of over £23m, around 250 staff and over 5,000 customers. That strength and stability is echoed by its hosting partner Star Technology Services Ltd, which is owned by the Claranet Group, a business with revenues of over £120m, around 700 staff and over 4,500 customers, and operations in the UK and mainland Europe.

IRIS Legal already hosts a variety of practice management systems successfully for all sizes of firms, including large law firms and barristers’ chambers. In addition to hosting the core applications, it also hosts a variety of third-party applications for its customers, which include Microsoft Office, Microsoft Exchange, telephony, legal forms and digital dictation.

As a ‘one-stop-shop’ supplier, IRIS Legal provides a complete ‘break-fix’ service onsite through its partnership with SCC, which has some 800 field engineers spread throughout the UK. This service covers everything from phone handsets, PCs and laptops through to servers and printers.

Jitendra Valera, chief marketing officer of IRIS Legal, said: “At times such as these, the industry has to get together and support the end customer. As the largest supplier to the legal market, we feel we are in a very strong position to provide an alternative and safe path to those legal clients of 2e2 who are impacted.

“There are many hosting vendors out there but our strength is our focus on the legal sector and a good understanding of legal solutions and how they are used. We are agnostic as to which practice management system the customer uses and our offer to extend a helping hand by providing free installation services demonstrates our confidence in our offerings and our commitment to the success of legal customers.”

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
