Product

Weak Practice Management features

Although Cosmolex has a built-in backend accounting module built-in, the practice management aspect is widely regarded as extremely unintuitive. The program focuses too much on the financial side and overlooks the basics needed to run an efficient practice.

Cosmolex customers may have a hard time finding bookkeepers/accountants who are familiar or willing to learn the system.

Works with your essential tools

Clio gives you everything your firm needs, and connects with all your essential tools, including Microsoft Outlook and Teams, Google’s Gmail and Google My Business, and Zoom.

With 200+ integrations available, Clio gives you the ability to grow and adapt to meet the future needs of your firm.

Integrations

Limited, less robust integrations

Cosmolex only has a handful of integrations. The lack of options lead to siloed data and clunky, manual workflows.

This also takes away a firm's ability to have a cohesive experience across platforms.

Flexible pricing to meet your needs

Choose from a range of flexible pricing plans—starting at $39/month—and update your subscription at any time.

PLUS, get access to exclusive bar association member discounts.

Pricing

Inflexible pricing + higher processing fees

Cosmolex has a one-size-fits all approach to pricing, meaning you end up paying for features you’ll never need.

CosmolexPay has higher processing fees than the average card accepted via Clio Payments.

Yes, and it’s free!

We’ve built an experienced team to ensure your transition from Cosmolex to Clio is as quick and reliable as possible.

And yes, data migrations are free for law firms of any size and on any plan.
