Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Why Your Firm Should Team Up with a Legal Sector Specialist

Strong teamwork is undoubtedly one of the essential factors in a team’s success. Effective teams share a common vision and have a common goal they want to reach. They have mutual respect between members, and value one another’s contributions and skill sets.

By partnering up with a specialist Managed Service Provider (MSP), you can gain the invaluable support, guidance, and expertise you need to continue to succeed. So, here’s why your firm should team up with a legal sector specialist:

Legal Expertise

Whilst there are a multitude of companies offering cloud and IT services, more and more firms are opting for a partner with sector-specific specialisms.

Specialist suppliers to the legal sector understand the regulatory environment and the challenges firms encounter, and work in partnership with their clients to align their technology use with their business strategy, delivering robust and compliant solutions that improve productivity, enable flexible working, and mitigate risk.

Achieving your financial goals and growth ambitions requires a clear roadmap to ensure investment is optimised. CTS’ expert knowledge, experience and reputation means we are uniquely placed to provide expert guidance on designing a strategy based upon incorporating the right technology that can evolve and grow as you do, delivering a competitive and reputational advantage.

Cybersecurity and Compliance

Working with a legal specialist gives you the reassurance that they are experienced in dealing with the unique auditing and compliance requirements of law firms and barristers’ chambers, in addition to the non-sector specific, yet just as significant, regulations such as GDPR.

Additionally, they should also cover a range of specialised and accredited services such as ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials PLUS, to ensure that you achieve your objectives. Your IT partner should understand and appreciate the plethora of processes legal firms work through on a daily basis in order to provide a tailored service to your firm.

Sector-Specific Technology Experience

A legal specialist will work closely with third party Practice and Case Management software providers such as Thomson Reuters and LexisNexis, harnessing strong relationships with their counterparts to facilitate smooth project delivery.

Furthermore, such knowledge means that your chosen IT partner will also be familiar with the common issues associated with widely-used legal software and be able to resolve them quickly and expertly, without having to involve your in-house team directly. This proves to be invaluable in aiding to resolve potential challenges before firms are impacted.

CTS delivers IT services that transform the user experience and operational success of law firms and barristers’ chambers, both day-to-day and in the longer term. This is because we focus only on the legal sector, understanding their needs better than others and shape our services around the unique requirements of the legal sector and their users.
