INNOVATE LEGAL ONLINE

Financial Health for Your Firm

About the series:

This February, while financial planning is top of mind with tax season approaching, Clio is offering a free meetup series that will be focused on improving financial health for law firms. Over four sessions, a panel of lawyers and legal consultants will cover topics pertinent to your firm’s efficiencies and bottom line, including automating billing and invoicing tasks, optimizing payments, and strategic budgeting. Also, during each meetup we will be raffling off one free session with a legal consultant, for an opportunity to explore your financial needs further.

Join us every Thursday in February to learn how to improve your firm’s processes and profitability!
