If the "bricks and mortar" approach is not for you, your practice management system is the glue that holds your business together.
As competition increases, more and more solicitors are turning to virtual law firm structures. The aim is to cut costs and overheads and place themselves at the forefront of technology.
The bricks and mortar approach to business is being replaced by virtual practices operating from anywhere. To set up in virtual practice you will need the following:
The benefits of these working methods are obvious. However, they are all underpinned by the need for an effective practice management system that operates from anywhere. LawCloud from LawWare provides this solution without compromising data security, compliance or confidentiality.
Technology has long been a catalyst for change. It allows organisations to increase productivity and adopt more competitive business models in place of traditional set-ups. In the business of law, “virtual law firms” are redefining how legal practices operate and the services they offer.

Virtual law firms have been around for a while now. Many went down that route due to enforced homeworking. Others found their existing practice decided to move to a virtual model to save overhead. Yet others decided to become self-employed.
Opening a virtual law firm is an appealing idea. Start-up costs are low and there is minimal overhead. It sounds ideal for a sole trader or even a small firm. Yet, before you take the leap into the cyberspace, there are some important points to consider. Read our article on virtual firms.
Our clients range from small start-up legal practices to multi-partner, multi-site firms.
Another great customer service experience from LawWare. My laptop had to be stripped back to factory settings as part of a repair - taking hours! In contrast, restoring LawWare took one phone call to the support team and I was up and running in 6 minutes. If only everything was so easy!
As the first commercial user of LawWare back in 1998, we have had no hesitation in remaining with the product through its development. We thoroughly recommend it to any firm looking for a practice management system.
The helpdesk is exceptionally good. Whatever the query there is always a human being there to help. No leaving messages or being advised to go to a website. The best computer service for solicitors I have ever used!
The linking of documents and casefiles saves so much time! I have experience of several accounts packages and I like that LawWare is simple to use and easy to learn. Support is quick and effective and staff are helpful and courteous.
I have worked with a number of Case Management providers over the years but have not come across anything with the attention to detail and thoroughness of LawWare. My colleagues and I have not been disappointed.
I can’t imagine trying to be a law firm in the 21st Century without 21st Century IT systems. Having a ‘single system’ that underpins all the work, whether we are in the office or out, is an integral part of what we are building.
The level of support is the main benefit using this system. The system itself once you have had training is simple and easy to use. We have a great relationship with LawWare and the ongoing support is second to none.
Significant preparation was required to configure and import the data from our old firm. We had to get all clients onto the new system and then learn how to use it. We just find it very easy to use, much easier than our old system.
Being a busy litigator with a growing firm it is incredibly useful to be able to view my files from any location with some form of internet connection. I am a fan, and want to keep working with LawWare to make a good product great.
The switch to the new LawCloud system, which is still on-going, has gone very well. We found the LawWare team without exception to be very helpful and knowledgeable. All queries are followed up and dealt with promptly.
