Case Study: Growing Legal Practicebank of servers

“Coming out of the recession, as a relatively small firm of UK solicitors, we are now putting more resources into business development to grow our practice. An important element of this has been our choice of practice management provider. In choosing LawCloud we have already met several of our aims, such as lowering overall IT expenditure. Case Study: Growing Legal Practice

Another key turning point in our expansion was setting up a further office several hundred miles from our main offices. Because LawCloud is accessible from virtually anywhere in the world provided that the appropriate basic IT equipment is in place, opening up new premises was a relatively smooth transition for our business. Adding users to the system as our practice expands is also now a painless process. It was also helpful to know that client data is being stored securely. And that the relevant server is located in the UK. Consequently it is subject to the restraints of the UK’s data protection legislation and enforcement.”
