See why over 150,000 lawyers have ditched their outdated software

If you’re experiencing a decrease in cash flow, limited ability to work remotely, inefficient processes—or simply want to better meet your client’s needs—Clio can help.

Simplify managing your law firm with Clio Manage.

Here are 4 reasons why law firms are switching to Clio’s cloud-based legal software:

1. Improve cash flow

Over 50% of clients won’t hire a law firm or will pay slower if they can’t make online payments.
With Clio, you can collect more money, faster—while decreasing costs:

  • Generate more revenue

    Bring on more clients by streamlining your intake process and leveraging our referral network. Then, easily track every time entry and expense.

    Get paid faster and improve collection rates

    Collect credit card payments online with Clio Payments (powered by LawPay) and allocate the funds to your operating and trust accounts.

    Decrease your costs

    No need to pay for an e-signature tool, file storage, LawPay (we cover the monthly $20 fee), server maintenance, and more. You’ll also get free 24/5 support and industry-low credit card processing rates.

2. Meet the needs of clients

Did you know 58% of clients now prefer to meet a lawyer via video conference and 72% prefer using a payment plan? With Clio, you can deliver a better client experience:

  • Seamlessly arrange meetings from anywhere

    Provide a hassle-free online appointment booking experience that reduces back-and-forth communication and no-shows. Plus, make any meeting a Zoom meeting with just one click.

    Offer flexible payment options

    Help clients who can’t afford to pay up front by offering a payment plan that automatically charges their credit card.

    Easily share updates and files

    Decrease the questions and anxiety your clients have by using a secure client portal to share documents, tasks, calendar events, invoices, and messages.
