An Innovate Legal Online Virtual Meetup

Pros and Cons of Implementing Practice Management Software at Solo Firms

Join solo lawyers to learn tips for evaluating and implementing legal practice management software in this Innovate Legal Online Meetup.

Practice management software helps solo firms manage day-to-day workflows and business operations—but is it the right fit for your firm?

Exploring practice management software for your firm opens the door to opportunities for efficiency and growth, but the selection process can also be complex when you’re going it alone. While potential drawbacks—like learning new processes and incurring additional costs—can be overwhelming, thorough research and expert guidance simplifies the situation. With proper implementation, legal software streamlines your firm’s processes, improves efficiencies, and ultimately sets your firm up for success. 

To help you determine if investing in software is the right move for your firm, the panelists will discuss the pros and cons and address key topics and questions, such as:

  • What to look for in software, and when to begin using it
  • The type of support and training needed for successful implementation
  • Potential risks involved
  • How to determine if a software is easy to use—and compatible with existing firm technology
