About Us

CTS provides IT solutions Shaped for Law

Your business is law. Our business has been shaped for law. We are CTS, your IT partner uniquely dedicated to the legal sector.

The legal sector is like no other.

It takes years of dedicated learning, exceptional knowledge and determination to always be one step ahead. Every minute and every decision matters and maximising reputation and minimising risk informs every decision made.

Technology powers justice, so it’s critical that everything works perfectly. Whether in an office, chambers or law court, an optimised solution can make the difference between case lost or  case won.

Choosing an IT partner that that delivers productivity and positive outcomes now and for the future is key. A partner that’s as dedicated to the legal sector as you are, with the knowledge, know-how and evidence to support every need.

Transforming the user experience and operational success of the legal sector

CTS delivers IT services that transform the user experience and operational success of Law Firms and Barristers’ Chambers, both day-to-day and in the longer term.

Unlike most IT companies, we understand the highly regulated nature and distinctive culture of the legal sector and their users.

Established in 2008, CTS’ specialist focus has enabled us to become the No. 1 MSP to the legal sector in the UK and Ireland. In 2020, CTS acquired Sprout IT and City Business Solutions (CBS), both of whom specialise in providing services to Barristers’ Chambers, further expanding our legal sector client base and knowledge.

That experience and expertise allows us to create a tailored solution that will maximise the efficient use of fee earners’ time, enhancing productivity and profitability.

"Our services have been uniquely shaped for law, maximising reputation and minimising risk for the clients we support."
