An Innovate Legal Online Virtual Meetup

Pros and Cons of Implementing Practice Management Software at Small Firms

Join small law firms to learn tips for evaluating legal practice management software in this Innovate Legal Online Meetup.

Legal practice management software helps small firms manage their day-to-day—are you ready to make the transition?

The right legal practice management software streamlines processes, boosts efficiencies, and provides remote accessibility—which ultimately improves performance for everyone at a law firm. However—with many options to choose from, along with challenges like pushback or resistance to change from colleagues—exploring practice management software for your firm can be overwhelming.

This meetup will help you determine if investing in practice management software is the right move for your firm by exploring the pros and cons and addressing common questions and concerns, including:

  • How can small firms determine if they should be using practice management software?
  • How to convince your firm that change is good
  • How to properly research, select, and implement the best solution?
  • What are potential risks to be mindful of? (and how to overcome them)

Meetup Overview:

  • Who: Hosted by Alex Bramos, Marketing Programs Manager at Clio, featuring Adriana Linares, President at LawTech Partners, and Adam Sherry and Katelyn Adelman from Spector & Sherry, LLP
  • What: A 60-minute panel discussion on evaluating legal software for small firms
  • Why: Choosing new technology for your firm can be overwhelming, but this meetup can help with the process
