Your law firm or corporate legal department has established the need for a new, better or different legal case management platform. What is the next step to guarantee the success of the project?

The early involvement of the right functional areas in the organization is essential to establish an initial needs assessment, develop an evaluation strategy, define a pilot project and gain necessary approvals. This will ensure well-represented participation focused on solving a real business problem and confirm senior business leaders and stakeholders support the process. Keep requirements high-level and focused on business needs.

As your knowledge grows, new ways to solve problems and innovate for your law firm or corporate legal department will emerge. The cloud offers innovative ways for legal organizations to operate and introduces new business flows allowing fresh interactions with employees, clients and partners to achieve organizational objectives.

Draw talent from the following areas in your organization:

  • Practice Management
  • Knowledge Management
  • Attorneys
  • Billing and Accounting
  • IT and Governance
  • General Counsel
