This March has been an extra special one at Clio: We’re celebrating our 10th anniversary.
10 years ago, Jack Newton and Rian Gauvreau founded Clio with the goal of bringing law firms to the cloud. Today, Clio is the most powerful and most widely used law practice management software in the world—and we’re just getting started. We’ve recently added 21 new app integrations to Clio’s App Directory, and we’ve got a few other tips to help you practice more efficiently below.
Check out our journey over the past 10 years, and read below about some of our newest app integrations.

Tip: 2 ways to send client invoices
Here are two ways to send invoices to your clients quickly and easily:
1. Using Clio Connect
With Clio Connect, Clio’s online client communication portal, you can easily and securely share invoices with clients via email. “Securely” is the key word here: As a lawyer, you have a duty to keep client information confidential, and with Clio Connect, you can rest easy knowing that everything is secure.
Patrick Palace of Palace Law finds that with minimal training, his firm’s clients can access not just invoices, but any documents related to their case through the portal. “In the two years we’ve been doing this, no one’s complained that they didn’t like getting their information instantly or that they didn’t like Clio Connect,” he said.
2. Using InvoiceSherpa
InvoiceSherpa helps you stay on top of accounts receivable by automatically following up on overdue accounts. It also sends out your initial invoice as a PDF attachment, and integrates directly with Clio—your contacts and invoices in Clio will automatically appear in InvoiceSherpa, making it even easier to manage invoicing and follow ups.
With over 90 app integrations, Clio is the most powerful and robust legal practice management platform available. See what’s available in the App Directory.
