Why Reisman?

At the same time two guys stood at a table at the 2008 ABA TECHSHOW, demonstrating the beta version of Clio, attorney of twenty years, Catherine Reisman, was embarking on her own daunting undertaking. Like Clio founders, Jack Newton and Rian Gauvreau, Catherine was leaving a sensible career for the entrepreneurial route.

After Googling “legal practice management systems”, and finding Clio, Catherine knew she had found the right tool for her practice (despite the version one, egg yolk-yellow logo).

What Catherine did not realize was that she was Clio’s very first customer, and her trust in the company would forever change Clio’s future.

An email with honest feedback from Catherine to Clio’s support inbox was a game changing moment for its founders. For Jack and Rian, Catherine was the lawyer the product was made for, an attorney representing the mass demographic of Clio customers, an American practitioner in a small law firm. She was depending on Clio, and so the creators responded.

“We had to make it work for Catherine because her livelihood depended on it and we weren’t going to let her down,” says Jack.

Nine years later, Clio’s dedication to its customers continues to be the driving force behind every decision. And we can’t wait to hear about your success.
