Legal Case Management Software FAQs

What is legal practice management software and why should law firms use it?

Lawyers have enough on their plates without having to worry about legal practice management. They need to spend their time and energy on billable client-facing work—not on low-value admin.

This is where Clio’s legal practice management software comes in. 

With customisable intake forms, available as part of Clio Grow, lawyers can onboard clients in one swift step. Key information is collected once and then applied throughout document-intensive workflows. 

Better still, legal case management software automatically handles all document and matter management. Securely store key files in one single portal. Access crucial files on the go, whether at home or in court. 

When it comes to billing, Clio’s easy billing and customisable invoices ensure lawyers can invoice—and get paid—in no time at all.

What kinds of law firms can benefit from using legal case management software?

Every single law firm can benefit from using legal case management software, whether you’re practising in a more common area of law, such as family law or immigration law, or a more specialised field such as maritime law, human rights law, environmental law, construction law, charity law, or banking law.

The benefits—increased performance, productivity, and profitability—are universal. Lawyers can spend more time on their clients and less time on admin. 

How do I choose the best law firm software?

There are no hard-and-fast rules for choosing the best law firm software. Every law firm has its own specific requirements. A maritime law firm and an environmental law firm, for example, have different priorities and goals. However, there are a few general rules to follow when choosing law firm software.  

First, draw up a list of what your firm struggles with on a daily basis. It might be that your lawyers don’t spend enough face-to-face time with clients. Or perhaps your lawyers struggle to accurately record how long they spend on each client’s tasks—so you might need a law firm time recording software.

Once you have these pain points listed out, you can then search for law firm software that has the capabilities you need, such as cloud-based document and matter management, time recording, task management, and integrations with the rest of your tech stack.

In other words, such as Clio.
