The Cloud benefits from high levels of regulation, all designed to keep you, your clients and your business data safe. Find out what the regulators say below.
As the Law Society notes, “Cloud systems may provide an alternative means of storing and processing data.”
Depending on whom you talk to, “Cloud computing” may be simply the latest IT buzz word or a dynamic infrastructure used by many organisations. Cloud computing providers claim that they can offer law firms a low-cost alternative to storing and processing data and software on their own computer or local server. Instead, data and software is stored and processed remotely in the cloud provider’s data centre, accessed as a service by using the internet.
One of the main benefits of cloud computing is that it is paid for on a service basis which avoids high initial investment and ongoing upgrade fees associated with software licensing. Other benefits cloud providers claim to offer include increased flexibility for the user, the availability of support and maintenance, the ability to respond more quickly to changing IT demands and simplification of IT systems.”
The Law Society notes that, “like all IT developments, cloud systems present a new set of risks and concerns”. Their advice note is intended to highlight important cloud computing issues to help lawyers decide if a cloud system is right for them and for their law firm.

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.
