Built on the legal industry’s most widely used cloud-based legal practice management software, Clio Manage, the new feature set addresses the distinct workflows, procedures, and requirements unique to personal injury law.
This launch marks Clio’s first practice-specific customization, delivering technology to meet the needs of 50,000 personal injury lawyers practicing across the United States.
Personal injury law firms in the United States have distinct procedures and requirements from those of other legal practices. For example, personal injury lawyers don’t operate on the industry’s dominant billable hour model, instead, they only get paid if they win or settle a case.
Given that the average case can take up to a year to resolve, these firms oversee a steady influx of clients to maintain the firms’ cash flow. Managing multiple long term cases at varying litigation stages necessitates specific case management workflows that include organized task and deadline management specific to personal injury law.
“For too long personal injury lawyers have compromised on what they need from their technology partners—resulting in complex workflows, poor efficiency, and substandard user experiences,” said Jack Newton, CEO and Founder of Clio.
“That all changes today with our new suite of features specifically designed for personal injury lawyers. I can’t wait to see the resulting impact of practices that are run more efficiently, profitably, and true to the client-centric approach that Clio is known for.”
This launch marks a key milestone in Clio’s vision for building a harmonized platform to serve multi-practice firms.
The solution will make it easier for firms with multiple practice areas to operate and succeed on a central platform—including the thousands of personal injury lawyers that already use Clio’s core practice management product, Clio Manage.
