LawSpace: the complete IT environment built specifically for the UK legal industry
The modern law firm has many pressures placed upon it. Technological advance has changed the face of the industry over recent years. Additionally, the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated change to unprecedented levels, placing a heavy burden on finances.
In its annual survey, PwC found that Law firms are facing “significant challenges”, with the threat of meeting financial targets listed as the number one priority in the medium term. With this in mind, maintaining a healthy level of working capital was one of the top priorities given to us by our clients for 2021.
However, that must be balanced against investment. Experience shows that the firms that were the most prepared to transition smoothly to remote work performed the best in 2020. That trend looks set to continue, so a forward-thinking firm must balance cost saving against investment in the technology that will drive them forward in the future.
We thought carefully about how we could make this work for our client base and, using our knowledge and expertise of the technology landscape and the legal sector, we assembled a service designed specifically to address these needs. We call it LawSpace.
LawSpace is an all-encompassing workspace for the legal sector. Within LawSpace is everything your people need to work both in the office, and remotely. That includes:
- A Modern Laptop
- Monitor(s) for your home-working setup
- Microsoft 365 E3 (including Microsoft Teams)
- VoIP Telephone with a telephony package
- HD Webcam for video calls
- Sophos Endpoint X for Enterprise-Grade Antivirus & Anti-ransomware protection
- Unlimited IT Support to smooth out those day-to-day IT issues
We designed LawSpace to remove the need for any up-front investment which can negatively impact yearly profits. Instead, the service allows law firms to spread the working capital risk out over 3 years. By combining all your hardware, software, support, and security protection into one package, you have all you need to work effectively for one simple and predictable price per user.
Furthermore, LawSpace ensures that your data is secure by providing all your staff with company-owned and managed devices, with some of the best anti-malware tools available, including Sophos Endpoint X. Rather than staff using a mixture of their personal devices, which so often have inadequate security tools, you will have tight control over the threat landscape.
With cyber threats being such a prevalent threat in modern business, we can also provide security training to your firm as part of the LawSpace package.
