Are you a hi-tech legal warrior? Or are you making do with first-generation legal software?
This has been a watershed year, with legal tech companies bringing out new tools that are intensely focused on changing the daily practice of law. Many of these changes were unimaginable just a few years ago. But new technology is removing the accepted limitations of the past, and multiplying productivity for the lawyers using them. The time to suit up with new legal tech for a better competitive edge is now. Hi-tech lawyering has come of age, and you can thank the Cloud.
We have heard “the Cloud” changes everything, and it does. But it’s more than just 24/7 access and working from home. The Cloud makes it possible to coordinate all the ”moving parts” of your law practice. We’re not talking about tedious exports/imports. We are talking about seamless, automatic integrations. Like when you buy a book with Apple Pay, and your phone app links the store, a credit card processor, and your bank all together in seconds.
1 + 1 = 11
This is the “new math” of the hi-tech law practice—where the whole is more than the sum of the parts. Here’s an example:
Recently, CosmoLex and Casemaker announced an exclusive partnership for the benefit of their users. CosmoLex provides state-of-the-art law practice management system to lawyers across the country. Casemaker is the leader in legal research with established partnerships with over 25 Bar Associations and serves more than 250,000 users. Each company has a reputation for providing a top-tier solution in the legal technology market.
The new integration with CosmoLex means Casemaker users can now track time, bill their clients, keep track of important matter details, all without leaving Casemaker. This eliminates leakage as time is posted as you use Casemaker, and eliminates surprises as matter details are visible within CosmoLex. And it enhances compliance, as you do not play catch-up, retrofitting billing details days after the fact..
On the flip side, CosmoLex law firms can now access their Casemaker accounts from within CosmoLex. As a lawyer, you are likely to be logged in to your practice management system continuously, performing your daily to-do’s. Now you can click a menu tab and jump into Casemaker to do some legal—while remaining inside CosmoLex. No log-in/log-out, looking up passwords or anything like that. It’s easy and it’s fast.
Bundling legal research and practice management together proves the case of 1 + 1 = 11. Legal research is an important and integral part of many law firms, but up until now, it was it’s own separate animal, outside the orbit of practice management or billing systems. And that meant it was not always managed or monetized properly. The CosmoLex/Casemaker solution is an easier, faster, more profitable, and safer way of handling legal research. Thousands of lawyers using Casemaker and CosmoLex now have a better way to do their research, while maintaining their single-sign-on account — with no imports/exports, installs or upgrades to worry abou— because CosmoLex and Casemaker took care of all that in the Cloud.
