Buyer's guide


Last Updated: April 20, 2019

Law firms receive and process an incredible amount of sensitive case and client data through various mediums, such as phone calls, emails and documents. Firms must maintain organization and professionalism when handling this information, or risk losing valuable time and money. Case management software helps law firms handle case and client data more effectively and with less manual effort.

According to our research, over 75 percent of legal professionals say using legal management software has positively impacted organization and workflows, and has increased the firm’s billable hours, as well. However, firms have several variables to consider before purchasing a system, such as breadth of functionality, integrations and deployment options.

We’ve created this guide to help buyers understand case management systems and how they factor into the larger legal software market. In it, we’ll cover:

Firms can purchase case management software as a stand-alone or “best-of-breed” solution, or as part of a larger practice management platform (whereby case management functionality would be bundled with others, such as legal billing applications or legal document management applications). Typically, practice management solutions handle the entirety of the firm’s business functions—including accounting, reporting and even marketing. Case management systems, on the other hand, focus on the firm’s internal needs regarding the processing and storing of case and client data. The complexity of these systems can vary, as we’ll cover in the section below.

Buyers who purchase stand-alone case management software should ensure the product integrates with other software solutions the firm uses, such as its
