Specialist legal technology

We provide the complete IT and communications service for law firms, combining legal-specific applications with networked IT services.

We realise you are in business to maximise partner profit by increasing margins on billable hours and performing fixed-fee work in less time. To do this, you are looking at ways of using technology to make your firm more agile and productive – providing better client service at improved margins.

Through our specialist legal technology division, Tikit, we provide all the applications that deliver the standardisation, productivity and compliance required for a competitive legal practice:

  • Time capture
  • Document management
  • Case management
  • House style
  • Practice management
  • Client relationship management
  • Online learning.

IT and communications for law firms

We also provide the cloud-based unified communications services which make collaboration possible, including audio and video conferencing to link you with clients and other professional advisers in life-like virtual meetings.

We can give your fee earners the ability to access and transmit confidential documents from anywhere, even when travelling abroad using their own consumer devices. We’ll help you with the policies, technologies and management services to allow them to work the most productive way they can to without ever compromising security or compliance.

As clients move into new territories to seize growth opportunities, you need to set up branches or acquire local firms in order to support them. To do that effectively, you need an IT partner who is already there and can integrate local practices into your global infrastructure. We provide networked IT and communications services in over 170 countries with a consolidated global service model that gives you standardisation, reliability and a single point of contact.

You want to exploit the potential cost savings of cloud-based IT but without loss of ownership and control. So we’ll provide you with the right balance of private and hybrid cloud infrastructure as a service.

You need your applications to be available and reliable, performing to the required standard, but you want to avoid paying too much to achieve that. Our applications-aware networks can be optimised to provide the right performance at the minimum cost.

Beachcroft LLP

Beachcroft LLP

We provided flexible working solutions to Manchester firm Beachcroft, allowing them to increase productivity, reduce office space costs by 25%, attract and retail talent and reduce carbon emissions.

It was crucial for our clients, our people, and our reputation that we should get this right first time. BT teamwork in providing the tools and processes, and sharing their experience – all of which we were lacking – was the key. We would not have succeeded without them.”
