Discover which solutions can enhance businesses within the law sector
Chances are if you’re a lawyer, a solicitor, a barrister or a legal assistant, you’ll use the internet or some form of device on a daily basis.
However, are you really making the most of the telecoms options available to you? Find out how you can take the next steps to collaborate, communicate and connect with your clients and your colleagues.
Connectivity touches almost every point of our lives and a life in the law sector is no different. If you’re a legal assistant working from the office, you’ll no doubt require a secure and reliable connection to help you work seamlessly. Additionally, if you’re a solicitor, barrister or lawyer, you’ll need a strong and stable connection to keep your emails regularly updated so that you can converse effectively with your clients.
You may also need a good connection to research your cases, contact any witnesses you may need and keep updated with the latest changes in law. All of this can be done with a business broadband connection. Either a superfast or ultrafast product should do the trick.
Security and protection is of upmost importance within the law sector. Therefore you might want to look at investing in the most secure connectivity product there is: Ethernet. There are plenty of Ethernet options on the market but in order to extract exactly what you need from your solution, you’ll want SLA guarantees and 24/7/365 customer service.
Investing in an Ethernet line will ensure your practice is the only one using your connection, ensuring the upmost security. From time to time you may also need to send or receive huge files to colleagues, clients or courts. Ethernet allows you to do that easily and efficiently.
Spending time between the office, court, home and on the road can make things difficult when you’re trying to stay in touch with several people. However, with a business mobile it doesn’t have to be difficult. There’s a range of tariffs designed with businesses in mind. What’s more, with a business mobile you’ll have the ability to invest in mobile device management; once again ensuring your data and files are kept confidential, safe and secure should you ever lose or misplace your mobile.
Under the 1980 Limitation Act, the primary limitation period files should be stored is six years. That’s six years in which your office can quickly become cluttered with files from years gone by. However, utilising the cloud could not only save you space in the office but it can also save you headaches in the future thanks to its security promises.
With cloud storage options, you can also store case files on a central drive. This allows your colleagues to access files from wherever they may be working, making collaboration and communication simpler and easier,
No business can afford to miss a phone call but within the law sector, missing a phone call could prove disastrous.

A hosted phone system allows you to switch between your desk phone and your mobile seamlessly and effectively – even if you’re mid call!
