We've added another event to our 2016 calendar. We've booked to exhibit at the "Law Firms & Cyber-Attack Conference: Prevent, Detect, Defend" on 5th October at the University of London. Cyber-crime is a national-scale problem, estimated to cost the UK £27 billion every year. Delegates will hear from high-level speakers discussing cyber-crime threats, law firms' vulnerabilities and cyber-protection measures. Attendees are invited to come and chat with us about the cyber-security features within our software and outsourcing services. Find out more on our events web page.
When Lawyers Inc. established its business late 2015, a comparison was made between in-house management of cashiering and payroll, with outsourced support. They chose the latter and are saving a minimum of 2-3 days' time each month plus ongoing financial savings. In our latest case study, Jason Joyce, Financial Controller at Lawyers Inc., offers plain-talking advice to other law firms in his position.
Remember our Hadrian's Wall chaity walk on 14th May which raised £4,025 for the Alzheimer's Society? Since then we've been scoffing cakes and begging for extra donations. As a result, we've raised another £300+ from designated Alzheimer's Society Cupcake Day and secured £1,500 in matched funding from BP, taking our grand total to £6,145. Read more including thank you commentary from Steph Larkin, community fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Society, and our MD, Julian Bryan.
We regularly exhibit and speak at a variety of industry events because we recognise how useful it is to meet with you - law firms - and discuss all-things legal technology and outsourcing. That's why we're exhibiting at Manchester Law Society's Management Conference in September. Do come along to our stand and pick up a few handy hints on practice management as well as help yourself to our freebies!
Today, we announce our newly formed partnership with Iken offering integration between our two software environments – case management and legal accounting. The single-interface system will streamline the processes involved in managing matters and accounts for local authorities; the latter now having to comply with the SRA Accounts Rules as an essential regulatory requirement of handling client monies.
Our Friday-dress-down-for-charity series continues with June's collection allocated to Cheshire Search and Rescue (CSAR). Our monies were very well received as the charity gets no government funding whatsoever. Discover more about CSAR's lifesaving work, see thank you note from Anthony Horrigan, CSAR Secretary, and read comments from our MD, Julian Bryan, about our "enthusiastic and relentless fundraising efforts" and this "very worthy charity".
