IT services for law firms
Our team can offer you the strategic, technical, and operational expertise to help you achieve your business goals and ensure that your IT and communications are working at the highest possible level. Typical IT support services that we offer to law firms and legal businesses include:
- Auditing and IT roadmaps – we can assess your current infrastructure then create a coherent and security compliant IT strategy, with a clear roadmap for rolling out changes and improvements to your set-up.
- Systems and software guidance and implementation – we can provide impartial advice on selecting specialist legal software or migrating to a new practice management system. We can support your staff to help them get the most out of these tools.
- On-site support – we can assist you with the physical implementation of IT infrastructure changes within your firm, even in scenarios where you have multiple offices in different towns or cities. Our roadmap will ensure that changes to your systems are synchronised and provide efficient business continuity across your locations.
- Global support – we are experienced in dealing with law firms and legal service businesses that have operations in multiple countries. With our extensive global partner network, we can even help you to get on-site support for your firm’s overseas offices.
- Remote monitoring and administration – real-time continuous monitoring of servers and systems is of vital importance to our legal sector clients. If any aspects of your systems are compromised in any way, you need to know about it and act upon it quickly. A dedicated IT manager will also maintain an overview of your IT infrastructure and ensure that you’re equipped with the hardware and software required to meet your business’s needs.
- Information security risk assessments – our team can help you to identify, assess, and implement key security controls in applications whilst also identifying and preventing application security defects and vulnerabilities.
Robust security and compliance for peace of mind
Law firms are particularly prone to cyber-attacks and successful breaches of their systems can be costly both financially and in terms of reputation management. We understand that businesses operating in the legal sector must adhere to very high standards regarding data protection and security.
If security improvements are high on your agenda, we can help you to migrate to a platform that offers best in class security provision. We recommend Microsoft 365, which gives you the tools you need to manage a full fleet of devices, protect desktops and servers, locate and wipe lost phones or laptops, and remotely monitor and remediate threats on vulnerable and compromised systems.
With Microsoft Security in place, we can then implement a range of procedures to ensure company-wide security compliance within your firm. This includes:
- Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) – ensuring that this is enforced for all users.
- Exchange Online Protection + SPF/DKIM – helping you to block malicious incoming emails and makes sure your emails don’t get blocked as spam going out.
- InTune – assisting you with device management and control, an essential security component for staff working remotely.
- Sharepoint Security – we can help you to get the best out of this collaborative platform. From a security perspective we can help you to set the controls regarding file sharing whilst structuring permissions and data access in a manner most suited to your business.
- Data Loss Prevention (DLP) – we can help you to define and apply DLP policies in Microsoft 365 to further protect sensitive data and reduce risk.
- Cyber Essentials – outside of Microsoft 365 we can support you with the provision of internal training to staff and management.
