Is it time for a modern matter management solution?

There can be many signs that indicate it's time for your in-house Legal Department to upgrade to a modern cloud based legal matter management software.

Some common indicators include: 

  • You aren't sure who's doing what
  • You get anxious for meetings with the C-suite
  • You are over budget. Again
  • You have a reputation for being the "Department of No" or a "black box" for legal requests
  • Business clients constantly complain that Legal is slow or that they never know what is going on with their projects
  • You use a lot of different in house legal software but it's not making anything easier
  • Your legal team is burnt-out and so are you
  • Your list of legal matters lie in various places, including but not limited to legal pads, spreadsheets, email folders
  • Your Legal Department is drowning in work – and so much of it seems repetitive
  • You don't have access to real-time data, so you struggle to spot trends, identify business problems or make predictions about your legal operations
  • You’re not sure if the C-suite understands the value of your legal team

But what is modern matter management?

“Matter management,” has undertaken a slow evolution, from parchment to file folders to spreadsheets to software. (And let’s be honest, there are still plenty of legal teams getting by on file folders and spreadsheets.)

If traditional matter management resembled a conveyer belt, modern matter management is an ecosystem, tying together the steps in a project’s lifecycle with key information and communication.

Matter management manages all aspects of a legal matter. A modern matter management software can provide an in-house legal department with a single source of truth for all legal matters.
