And then there is IT…
As a lawyer starting up a new firm, you can be your own secretary, accountant, and sales team, one thing you shouldn’t do is your IT.
Many people underestimate the inter-dependencies of IT systems, software and hardware and what’s involved in getting it set up. What might seem like a straightforward task can quickly become overwhelming. And what might seem like a short term fix can prevent you from scaling up quickly when the time comes.
If you’d like someone to take the IT hassle off your hands then contact us. We only work with law firms and we look after more than 800 practitioners in Australia. We can purchase equipment and set you up in a secure environment with system backups and provide online access from any device in three days. As a bonus, we’ll throw in a subscription to Office 365.
We also have a number of practitioners who have been in your shoes and would be happy to share their experience and tips for getting started. Reach out via the form below for a list of relevant firms.
