The economic pressures from increasingly demanding clients and aggressive global competition mean law firms are now obliged to provide much more than just good lawyers.
To maintain competitive advantage, they need to deliver this legal expertise efficiently, effectively and innovatively. Commercial capability, good business process and effective technology are now crucial to success in the legal sector, and the IT function is a key enabler to this.
Over the last twenty years, Plan-Net has established a strong pedigree as IT partner and specialist to the legal profession. We’ve delivered IT support services and consultancy to a large number of law firms, including 14 of the top 15 law firms in the UK.
Our portfolio of IT services has been developed with an in-depth understanding of the demands of the legal sector from the service needs of lawyers to the specialist technology platforms they use.
Our services range from specialist IT consulting engagements, managed project deployments through to SLA-driven end-user and infrastructure support, available 24/7.
Every solution is tailored to the specific requirements of each of our clients, but what’s common to all is high levels of response, resolution, security and customer service.
We understand the legal profession, having been working with law firms for over 28 years

We were the first UK company to offer a 24 hour legal-dedicated round the clock support desk service
Analysis, design, and migration work. Refining procedures and recommending solutions. These are the building blocks of IT consulting. But we believe that a project isn’t complete until it’s been successfully implemented.
We’re here to take full responsibility from beginning to end.
We are attending British Legal Technology Forum taking place on the 12th March 2019 at the Old Billingsgate London and would love to speak to you during the event.
“By 2020, the average person will have more conversations with bots than with their spouse.” - Gartner.
Gartner’s prediction might seem somewhat dystopian to some (utopian to others). Regardless of how you feel about the rise of chatbots, it doesn’t feel like they are going anywhere. The fear of AI tech taking away jobs has some people feeling very anti-bot. But carefully implemented bots can improve business efficiency and empower users. How? By understanding that they are a workflow and communication enabler, not a replacement for the human touch ― or our dark robotic overlords.
Plan-Net’s Technical Services Director, Adrian Polley was in attendance at the Gartner Symposium 2018 in Barcelona earlier this month. The event attracts over 6,000 CIOs and IT thought leaders from across Europe and is packed full of seminars and sessions on emerging trends, technologies and insights to fuel business advantage IT.
Here’s Adrian’s key takeaways from the event.
