The new Normal

Working from home may be considered to be the new normal, but occasionally you need expert MS Office support.

When your own end user IT support is not available, call or email us with your Office problem and we promise to find you a solution, quickly and economically.

Covid-19 has meant fee earners are more isolated from their PAs and IT support and therefore need to be highly competent themselves in producing their written work.

Historically, fee earners and PAs have been assumed to have at least adequate knowledge of MS Word, the industry standard. This is generally not the case and the new Normal is already exposing this weakness with the latest versions of MS Office adding to the confusion.

It is generally accepted that online precedents, even if the client’s house style has been adopted, can be problematic due to historical document development through several different word processing programs.

We can design online training programmes delivered by Zoom or Teams call to meet your specific needs and create problem-free precedents. Price by individual negotiation.

We can transcribe the recordings of your virtual online meetings, telephone conferences and podcasts to the same high standard of the verbatim transcription service we provide to the Courts (see Sectors).

For transcription and support services, we do not have standard terms of business because we produce a tailor-made contract for each client. We charge a modest up-front and thereafter annual registration fee for each individual and corporate user. This funds our due diligence and administration, and then we charge for work done by the minute, at hourly rates specific to the type of service we provide.

Call or email us for a quotation or a better understanding of the services we offer, and levels of security and confidentiality.

About us

We are high level Microsoft Word™ users and trainers who have been providing services to professional clients including lawyers, trust companies, financial investigators, and Courts for over 25 years.

Our “pay as you use service” enables clients to control the cost of their support services and related equipment.

We can produce everything from complex contract documents and verbatim Court transcripts to general correspondence.

The advent of digital recording and secure internet transmission allows our service to be used around the world, with many of our clients based outside the UK.

We are highly educated and motivated with a detailed knowledge of the working systems of the professions. We understand the importance of our clients’ deadlines and provide a flexible service geared to meeting them.

The words “that’ll do” have no place in our ethos.

Court hearings correspondence

All work is proofread against the original recording or document and (if necessary) amended before being returned to the author.

It is essential for all parties that returned work is accurate and reliable. It can make the difference between acquittal or a 10 stretch; grounds for an appeal or not.

We also copy type non-digital documents.

Training

We’ve trained everyone from CEOs and Managing Partners to PAs and trainees.

Our courses are tailored to our clients’ needs and their specialty.

Each course is customised for the client once we have established their requirements.

This can include:

  • A basic overview of the mechanics of Word
  • How those mechanics drive document creation
  • Why things go awry and how to fix them, using your documents as examples
  • Tricks and tips
  • Shortcut keys
  • Q&A session

We conduct virtual, hands-on, one to one sessions as well as onsite classroom training (Covid-19 permitting).

Reformatting

We can correct “mangled” documents, including widely available third party precedents, to include:

  • Multi-level numbering
  • Cross-referencing
  • Tables of contents
  • Page and section breaks
  • Page and section numbering
  • Headers and footers
  • Inserting images within text

If anything goes haywire, we’re at the end of a telephone. See also Document Doctor.

Templates

We create templates, using your house style if you have one, which match your layouts, including letterheads, reports, forms, affidavits, discovery, verbatim transcripts, Opinions, etc.

Our templates include all of the elements described in Reformatting.

House styles

We can create a house style unique to your organisation to maintain your corporate image across all forms of documentation, including logos, layout and form.

Precedents

We create precedents in your own House styles to complement your corporate image.

If third party precedents do not incorporate all the features that you require, we can use our Document Doctor service to reformat them.

Document Doctor

Will fix just about any problem you have with your document, except the correctness of its content. See also Reformatting.
