In this digital age, technology has become essential to the delivery of legal services. Law firms use tech tools for a variety of reasons, including matter management, calendaring, client communications, and billing. While this reliance on technology has helped law firms improve client relations and the provision of services, it has also made the legal industry a common target for cybercriminals looking to steal valuable client data.
When law firm leaders fail to plan, implement, and enforce strict cybersecurity protocols, they are potentially exposing the firm to costly and damaging attacks. Though it will take some time and money to get adequate plans in place, when done correctly, it is one of the best investments a firm can make to deter fraudsters and keep client data secure.
Most law firm leaders do not enter the legal industry with an accounting background, but a basic understanding is important to ensure the proper management of your firm’s finances. Decisions about billing processes, the acceptance of payments, and trust accounting form the foundation for a firm’s financial success. Therefore, it is critical for law firms of all sizes to properly position their financial systems. It will not only save time and boost profitability but will also prevent several potentially serious compliance issues.

Read on for ways law firms can create a client-focused environment where all clients feel valued.
Does your firm have a succession plan in place? Succession planning is a crucial exercise in providing uninterrupted service to clients. Legal practice management software keeps the firm’s various business components in one centralized location, which can make a transition easier and efficient to navigate. Read on for what a successful law firm transition plan consists of – and how legal technology can help.
In today’s world of increased remote work and ever-evolving cyber attacks, the risk to client confidentiality is at an all-time high.
