SOSSpecialist entertainment industry law firm SSB Solicitors has signed up to SOS Connect from Solicitors Own Software after conducting a search for “best of breed” legal software.

The firm, based in Hammersmith, west London, is a boutique provider of legal advice for the music industry in particular, and has adopted SOS Connect for its matter management.

Jonathan Warr, practice consultant, said the move would “create administrative gold from base metals.”

“Due to the nature of the law we practice, there was a strong desire within the firm to ensure we have a well-built ‘chassis’ in place that can keep everything in order,” he said.

“The problem was that our previous system was not performing and so people had essentially closed their minds to the whole idea of practice management software.

“However, we began speaking to IT directors at several law firms about ‘best of breed’ and SOS’s name kept coming up.

“We have really enjoyed working with the team at SOS. Nothing is too much trouble and we are looking forward to a more streamlined and efficient way of working. I anticipate that SOS Connect will help us to create administrative gold from base metals.”

Graham Colbourne, managing director of SOS, said: “The fact that SSB Solicitors is a highly niche law firm was no barrier to its adoption of SOS Connect, and it is gratifying to have been recommended by so many third parties.”

Yet law firms are often more concerned about protecting sensitive information from external threats than from a far more likely cause: human error. Human error was behind the forwarding of confidential plans from The Bank of England to The Guardian. The sender included the wrong recipient in the email and, ever since, autocomplete has been disabled and staff at the UK’s main financial regulator must now enter every single address manually.
