The updated Solicitors' Code of Conduct, introduced in July, requires law firms to ensure they can carry on functioning on behalf of clients in the event of a disaster.
The law firm implemented Neverfail's Blackberry Enterprise Server to ensure continual mobile connectivity for the 120 fee earners and key workers in London, Madrid and Mexico City who use Blackberry devices to access e-mail.
Stuart Cowell, head of IT at Davies Arnold Cooper, said the firm chose Neverfail because it was supported by Blackberry maker Research in Motion, had multiple customer references and offered good value.
"Neverfail supports Blackberry Enterprise Server out of the box, saving time and money on customisation," he said.
The Neverfail system also enables the law firm to carry out routine server maintenance to update security software without interrupting e-mail availability. "This is another important business benefit," said Cowell.
