Choosing the Right Technology for Your Firm

Overwhelmed by the choice of technology on offer to your firm? Join Clio and our panel for tips on creating a technology package and approach that works for your firm’s needs and to learn about the technology solutions our law firm leaders have embraced as they grow their businesses. Part of the The Making of a Law Firm Series.

Now available to watch on-demand.

Choosing the right legal technology offers law firms a professional advantage, helping them to operate more efficiently, provide a better client experience, and maintain an enhanced competitive output that leads to more profits. 

Whether you’re starting a new law firm and want to embrace technology from day one or running an existing firm that has become over-reliant on manual processes like pen and paper or spreadsheets, you might be asking: How do other law firm owners choose the best solution for their firm’s needs?

We’ll discuss this question and more in the sixth episode of The Making of a Law Firm Series—Choosing the Right Technology for Your Firm. At this free event, Clio’s UK Community Manager, Geraldine O’Reilly, will be joined by two leaders who started their own firms in 2020, Elena Manukyan, Partner at The Injury Solicitor, and Kim Cross, Partner at Vine Law. 

Our leaders will discuss why they choose to run digital-first law firms, embracing technology from the outset. 

We’ll also discuss:

  • The technologies that are vital for new and growing law firms today.
  • When to take on a new technology to make a process more efficient.
  • Questions to ask software vendors and what pitfalls to look out for.

Attendees will be encouraged to join in on the discussion and to contribute and will be free to ask questions of all our panellists via Zoom chat. 

Session duration: 60 minutes
