The firm has launched a new business software service enabling sole practitioners to set up a law firm with little cost, no need for support staff but with all the resources needed to open the doors to a new business.
Just Do Law provides lawyers with all the facilities needed to open a law firm including an electronic filing system; cash management system; a legal accountancy package; a virtual receptionist; design, hosting and maintenance of a website; and a Law Society approved compliance service, which includes money laundering, ensuring all your processes meet necessary obligations. The full package costs only £730 per month per user, plus vat, or can start from as little as £170 plus vat depending on the services required.
Just Do Law was developed by Morisons’ Technology Team who recognised the increase in the number of new firms starting up through redundancies and spin outs from larger firms and also the requirements of in-house lawyers engaged in terms of the new Legal Services Act. However, the integrated service can also be used by small law firms looking to streamline their existing business practices. The team brought together a number of leading partners, including eXpd8, the Onyx Group, The Cashroom Ltd, Legal Eye and CES Services Management Ltd to develop the solution.
Alan Stuart, Director, Morisons IT Solutions, said, “Whilst lawyers are experts in their field they are not necessarily great at, nor do they have time for, all the other business and administration processes needed to run a firm. Just Do Law is an integrated service which means client emails can be automatically filed, posted to the accounts package if required, then dealt with by the cash room and checked for any compliance issues. You’ll have a website designed and managed from day one, your telephone calls will be answered by a virtual receptionist and you don’t need to employ a cashier as all your cash room facilities are built in.
“The software uses the very latest cloud computing technology so all files are completely secure with guaranteed disaster recovery systems built in. The fact that it has been designed by solicitors for solicitors means that we have been able to understand what is needed from a software package and associated support.
“You can access your services from a computer anywhere in the world whether at home, in the office or on holiday. It’s convenient, cost efficient and lets you sleep at night!”
The solution is currently available in three packages – the full package is available at a cost of £730 per user plus vat; for £520 per user plus vat you can receive the practice management and cashroom services with dedicated cashier and for £170 per user plus vat you can access the practice management facilities.
