SOS200Birmingham law firm Sydney Mitchell has deepened its relationship with Solicitors Own Software (SOS) by signing up to SOS Connect for practice and case management.

The full service practice, which has four offices in and around the city, has been an SOS customer for many years and has now strengthened these links after replacing its incumbent case management software.

“We have a long established connection with SOS, having used their practice management software for 15 or 20 years,” says Sarah Archer, finance partner at Sydney Mitchell.

“Recently we began looking at upgrading our case management and accounts functions with a new supplier but we were so impressed with what SOS Connect could do for us, and with the efficiency and proactivity of the SOS team, that we took that option.

“We will now have a completely integrated system which is a vast improvement on what has gone before and which will help us to become even more efficient and productive.

“We are keen to expand as a firm and this development will allow us to do so.”

Graham Colbourne, managing director of SOS, said: “It is always gratifying when an existing customer decides to cement their relationship with us in this way, and we look forward to working with Sydney Mitchell on the roll-out of SOS Connect.”

On 25 May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. That might seem like a long time, but that’s just over 100 days away at the time of writing. Actually, GDPR was adopted back in April 2016, May 2018 is the end of the two-year grace period. The GDPR brings with it a whole host of changes, and the penalties for non-compliance are higher than ever, either 4% of your annual turnover or £20m, whichever is higher. But how do you prepare? What do you need to change first? Where do you even start?
