Press Release - Mission Critical for Law Firms

For the law firm, it's not so much about using technology to gain a competitive advantage but to be able to contunue to function. 
That is one of the conclusions of a report commissioned by Wimborne-based Copyrite Business Solutions which considers 'The Future of the Office'. 

"The delivery of service to the client doesn't always start and end with the lawyer", explained Copyrite Director, Ben Summerfield, "It has to be an intrinsic part of a law firm's modus operandi. The 'back office' and the administrative function have to be client focused as well".

The report poses the question: Can technology improve the way a firm interacts with the client, enhance the client experience, enable a firm to better reflect its culture, increase efficiency in the face of pressure on fees and margin? Or does the application of technology only really ensure a place on the starting grid?

Just published, the report also considers whether the paperless office will ever happen, and why with data protection and system security, having the highest and most impenetrable firewall isn't enough.

Included are the views of Hemant Amin (Charles Lucas & Marshall), Helen Archibald (Barlow Robbins), Adrian Bourne (Stevens & Bolton), Andrew Chalkley (Boyes Turner), Philip D'Arcy (Blandy & Blandy), Mark Lello (Parker Bullen), Nigel Maud (Hart Brown), Christopher Millar (Downs), Mike Parker (Wilsons Solicitors), Tim Read (Clifton Ingram), Frankie Tierney (Herrington & Carmichael), Valerie Toon (Mundays), Matthew Truelove (TWM Solicitors), Ian Wood-Smith (Field Seymour Parkes).
