Consultancy

The next generation of lawyers will judge you by your technology

We’ll make sure it’s not case dismissed

Start your transformation with our in-depth cloud consultation

CTS is the UK’s only specialist managed IT and cloud service provider entirely dedicated to working with mid-sized to large legal services companies. Your perfect partner.

As your firm increases its adoption of cloud technology, we will act as a partner, not a supplier. We collaborate closely with your firm’s management to understand your culture and strategy, tailor a solution to your requirements and help you to become:

  • More productive and efficient
  • A trusted partner, always available to your clients
  • Compliant with the regulation-heavy environment in which law firms operate
  • Attractive to technologically-minded clients and employees
  • Equipped to operate securely and protect clients’ confidentiality

The first stage on this journey is a thorough, expert assessment of your firm’s cloud readiness. Our consulting team will assess your infrastructure, applications, network and data along with your IT operation. The Cloud Readiness Assessment provides a bespoke roadmap for your firm’s cloud transition. This also makes it possible to quantify the financial benefits and build a robust business case for investment.

Key areas of assessment

Strategy

Your firm’s future plans make a major difference to how your IT should be configured and delivered. We’ll look at your aims and propose a solution that meets your firm’s priorities, from increased security against cyber threats to enhanced disaster recovery or the ability to outsource elements of your IT. We can also review the skillset of your firm’s IT team to ensure you have the necessary in-house skills to support your strategy.

Infrastructure

We’ll complete a thorough examination of your IT infrastructure, provide a clear, independent assessment of the current landscape and identify areas for improvement in performance and security. We’ll also ensure that your IT infrastructure has the configuration and capacity to meet your future requirements. This information will enable us to determine whether a private, public or hybrid approach is best for you.

Applications

Law firms use many applications on a daily basis for a range of functions including case, practice and document management. We’ll look at the architecture of your applications to assess which ones can be moved directly to the cloud, which type of cloud best suits the application stack, and which applications need to be re-platformed or re-coded. Usage levels and potential issues affecting availability will also be addressed.

"We found the Cloud Readiness Assessment invaluable in understanding our current situation, mitigating immediate threats and developing a cloud strategy for the future. The experience and knowledge CTS has of the legal sector meant they understood what we were looking to achieve and provided us with an achievable plan that met our budget and requirements."
