Lawyers live in their email inbox

Streamline legal operations through legal matter management software and Gmail without having to leave your email inbox!

In-house legal teams communicate with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders at any given point, so email remains the platform from which they can quickly and easily jump between legal matters and read, disseminate and respond to messages within seconds.

Many software systems have tried (and failed) to change this mode of communication. Slack and Teams are edging closer, but the accepted practice of sending an email for notification, negotiation or action purposes is still a long way from being displaced in the legal ecosystem.

For corporate Legal Departments, the second most common piece of software for managing legal work is a matter management software. So how does email coexist with legal matter management software? A system that is designed to improve legal operations and provide productivity improvements for in-house legal teams must consider the primary email tool of its users.
