Stay on Top of Your Team’s Calendar 24/7.

Keeping track of multiple deadlines can be challenging. Organize it all so you never miss an important date, client meeting, or court appearance.

Create reminders for yourself or your team easily within the matter so you are always prepared going into the discovery process or ahead of trial proceedings.

Viewing your calendar is just a click away in Centerbase. The intuitive calendaring system keeps you organized and can be filtered however best works for you.

Calculating legal deadlines manually is risky and prone to error. With the power of LawToolBox* integrated into Centerbase, never worry about the repercussions of missing a deadline ever again.

Visualize Your To-Do List.

Depending on the nature of your client’s case, your tasks may differ, but the quality of representation you provide should never wane. Stay organized so you can put your clients’ best foot forward.

Move step-by-step through your litigation matters – literally! Adjust the status of each project and always see what you need to get done with TaskFrame.

Create reminders for yourself to make sure you don’t forget a single thing, or assign tasks to your team to divide and conquer your case.

While you and your team are working on all the moving pieces, you can easily create billable items and associate them with the matter at hand for easy bill generation.

Don’t Let a Single Document From Your Cases Go Unattended.

As a civil litigator, you have to document everything, from investigations and discovery to trial preparation and settlement negotiations. Keep everything organized all within the matter.

Quickly and easily tag your pleadings, discovery, correspondence, agreements, and other documentation related to your matter. No sifting through files to find the documents you need – they’re all together in Centerbase.

You no longer need to recall how much time you’ve spent drafting motions or pleadings ahead of court. Easily create a billable entry directly from the document as you work on it.

If you require a more robust document management tool, Centerbase offers a complete integration with NetDocuments.* You can reap all the benefits of NetDocuments without ever leaving Centerbase.

Take the Stress Out of Billing

Complex cases often result in complex billing, but now you can simplify the process with the complete set of billing tools in Centerbase.

Depending on the case, you might have several different attorneys or timekeepers working different components. Manually approving prebills could take days for numerous people to mark up, but with ePreBill, the entire defense (or plaintiff) team can tackle it at once.

Centerbase makes billing your litigation cases easy, whether you bill hourly, by project, on a contingency basis, or with another method. It supports whichever billing arrangement makes the most sense for you or your client.

Add trust replenishments to your clients’ bills so they can quickly make payments and cover their existing invoices.
