Virtual Practices

Many of today’s start-ups and growing firms are increasingly choosing a ‘virtual office’ to reduce overheads, while those who prefer a more traditional bricks and mortar presence are equally looking to minimise IT expenditure.

Since its inception in 2006, Virtual Practices has taken the lead in providing top-quality legal software as a service, together with a secure, online and fully managed legal bookkeeping service. We remove the need for capital investment in IT and the overheads of employing a legal cashier – both large expenses for new or growing businesses. Paid for on a per-user subscription basis, our combination of services remains unique in the industry. And highly popular too, with our number of clients doubling in the last 12 months.

Virtual Practices is the only service provider to offer legal software on subscription with the wide-ranging features, flexibility and sophistication of SOS Connect. Even the smallest firms can now take advantage of software which, to run in-house, would normally be beyond their financial reach.

We offer a complete suite of applications for the fee-earner: from document, case, matter and e-mail management, through to time recording, billing and legal accounts, marketing and business reporting. In addition, our team of qualified legal cashiers ensures that your firm complies with the Solicitors Accounting Rules and regulatory reporting while keeping you on top of your financial performance with bank reconciliations and financial reports provided on-time. We take care of the administrative and regulatory burden so fee earners can focus on the profitable work. We also remove the worries around systems security, managing back-ups and running a network.

Our three-year head start in the market means that Virtual Practices offers the tried and proven path to rapid success. We hand hold all the way, advising you what you need to do as well as putting in the time and effort during the set-up period so that everything runs smoothly, once you go live. It usually takes just four weeks.

Whether you are looking for legal cashiering, comprehensive legal software or both, paid for on subscription, Virtual Practices is the one to call.
