  • Quiss discusses: Key technology and business trends that you should consider when working with an MSP

    Whether it’s transcription and typing or marketing and managed IT services, outsourcing support offers most law firms productivity and profitability gains over in-house alternatives. Whilst some firms will engage specialist consultants to help them select a managed IT service provider (MSP), the choice can be made simpler if the provider not only addresses the firm’s current IT concerns, but understands the likely trends and challenges, whilst proving to be a good, responsible partner at the same time. Here are a few trends and questions that will affect the future of your potential MSP partner and they should be discussing these technology topics when you meet to make your selection.

  • AJ Fox Compliance ask: What is Law Firm Risk & Compliance?

  • AJ Fox Compliance - 5 things to consider when in a hurry to hire a permanent employee

    Nearly every role that we work on is briefed on an urgent basis and we understand the pressure vacancies can put on teams, especially in Business Acceptance functions. However we never think this should trump the aim to hire the best person for the job. The risks have to be carefully weighed up. In the long-term hiring the wrong person for the role is likely to do more damage than the short term impact of leaving a role vacant for longer. Remember, the Hare might have got out of the blocks more quickly, but it was the Tortoise that won the race.

With file sharing platforms and client portals, one of the main reasons to stay on premises is the result of your clients not wanting their data in the cloud. Many firms feel their own, internal infrastructure will be more secure than the cloud. They are in control. However, many articles suggest the cloud is far more secure…
  • Law Firms measuring their success by their ability to embrace change

    For any business operating today, change is inevitable. The legal sector is no exception and firms must embrace change to maintain growth, success and their competitive edge.
