BRADFORD law firm Mir Solicitors has become one of the area’s first professional services companies to take advantage of a Government-backed voucher scheme to help update business broadband connections.
The Manchester Road-based practice has received funding from Superfast Leeds Bradford, which administers the Government’s SuperConnected Cities scheme.
Mir Solicitors, which has ten staff and specialises in commercial litigation, commercial property and insolvency, has used the vouchers to install kit which has increased its download speeds by more than 400 per cent.
Idris Mir, senior partner, said the investment would help improve service to clients, which range from individuals to large blue chip companies and overseas governments.
He said: “The use of technology is growing among savvier professional firms. As a small practice we’ve always punched above our weight and having the new high-speed internet has certainly boosted our productivity already as well as helping us to make cost savings. The faster connection has also supercharged our service to clients so that they are feeling the benefits as well.
“Having made the shift to high-speed internet, we intend to look at options such as flexible and remote working further down the line. We’re in no doubt that our high-speed internet access moves us up to the next level as a business.”
