If you own or manage a Law Firm and you haven’t considered outsourcing IT to a Managed Services Provider, you’re putting yourself, YOUr clients, AND your firm at risk.
Without proper IT systems in place, you are putting your firm at risk for loss of productivity due to downtime, cybersecurity issues, or possible data breaches. Most Law Firms aren’t large enough for a full-service in-house IT team, making Managed IT the perfect option. For Law Firms, Managed IT offers many benefits for law firms that need reliable and proactive IT support.
Managed IT gives your Law Firm the following benefits:
Cost Savings & Cost Control
If your Law Firm tried to hire staff to properly cover all your IT needs, you would need to hire at least one full-time person, probably more. You need someone who is an expert in network architecture, software and hardware, security, database management, end user support and more! Many IT professionals don’t have knowledge in all of those areas, which means you will need to rely on more than one person, or handle some of the tasks yourself. With Managed Services, you aren’t paying for in-house IT staff, but you are getting an entire team of IT experts. Managed Services also use a flat monthly “all-inclusive” fee structure so you get a predictable monthly cost without having to worry about large capital expenses.
Improved Efficiency and Productivity
Server breakdowns, slow internet, and other IT issues happen in every organization. Unfortunately, these types of problems may severely impact your ability to work and generate revenue. A Managed Solution can minimize these types of problems leading to an increase in overall business productivity.
Security of Sensitive Client Data

By using Remote Monitoring and Management, a Managed Service Provider will monitor the security of your systems and confidential client information.
