This is because, while efficiencies in IT spend can be achieved, cloud-based software does not replace the need for a centralised IT function. Security, device management, and printing, for example, will still need to be considered.
In this webinar, we were joined by Stewart Matthews, Managing Partner at Neves Solicitors, and Neil Walker, Chief Executive at Redkite Solicitors to discuss their experiences of adopting web-based legal apps.
Specifically, we explored:
Neil was introduced to the legal sector while at the Co-operative Group and held the post of Operations Director at Co-operative Legal Services when it was awarded the first ABS licence to be issued by the Solicitors Regulation Authority in April 2012.
At the Co-operative Legal Services, Neil grew a successful Probate and Wills business and led the Personal Injury business during a period of significant change as a result of the Jackson reforms.
Keen to remain in the legal sector, Neil then moved to his current role, as the Chief Executive at Redkite Solicitors
Stewart joined Hopkins Reynolds in 1999, which then merged with Neves in 2002, and qualified as a solicitor in 2001 initially into the dispute resolution team dealing with commercial disputes.
He then progressed within the firm first transferring into company/commercial work, then becoming a Senior Associate and a partner in 2011.
Currently, he is the joint managing partner of Neves Solicitors, with responsibility for the day to day running of the firm. He is also the Compliance Officer For Legal Practice (COLP), with responsibility for ensuring that proper compliance practices across the firm.
