After years of law school, you'd hope that lawyers would know everything, right? Well, not so much. Building a legal practice is less about the law, and more about thorough practice administration. This is an especially heavy burden for the 80% of law firms in North America consisting of less than ten lawyers. Luckily, Themis Solutions has developed Clio, a software-as-a-service solution that automates and simplifies the logistics of managing a law practice. The solution handles file management, client management, time tracking, billing, calendaring, and document management. Interestingly, Themis was formed out of a partnership with the Law Society of British Columbia (LSBC), a partnership which afforded them the opportunity to leverage a large base of beta users, and refine their solution. Clio launched its public beta last month, and expects to ship its first version in June 2008.
Clio is the leading practice management, time & billing and client collaboration platform for small- to mid-sized law firms. We lead the way in cloud-based practice management with a rich set of features that make managing everything from intake to invoicing a snap. more
